Great bike. Great work on a well used frame that could tell a few stories... Now she's like new again! Fantastic.
Bucks are in no way not a top of the line bike... The quality of materials, design and manufacture are equal to the Yo Eddy, though Bucks ride a bit softer which I actually like! In fact a Buck is a lot like a Titanium Fat, just heavier and not as quick. But still awesome.
And nowt wrong with Pace on a Fat, though being a 94 you can run something better and more travel than an RC35... RC36 set at 70mm ride sublimely
Cheers mate, I love the monostay frame design and it's my nod to the Ti until I can afford/warrant getting one
In terms of the fork, I've always liked the RC35 (hence why I have one!) and will see how it rides on that before deciding whether to keep it on there or not. I also have an F7 fork which I was thinking about getting sprayed up the same colour as the frame if I wanted to swap over to a rigid build at some stage.
Once I get a headset (King surely?) I can really get cracking and will post some more pics soon.
