Finished it. It rocks, so stoked with the ride.. Just like I remember, low, responsive, tight rear end :shock: on rails on the switchbacks..

Beautiful SunSet here tonite so I thought it was pretty opportune 8)

Superb!

If I was going to build mine up geared I'd want it to look as cool as that, a great mix of old and new :D

Very nice kingroon :D Also like the pics. They remind me a bit of my '95 Bonty brochure, where you see Bonty's photograped in the dunes

Cheers stu, yeah it's not a strictly retro build, but I didn't weant to sacrifice my dream build for adhering to strict specification! I think I'm gunna pick up a set of those Porc 2s on Ebay for it though, as much as the Bontrager name is cool on the tyres, they're a bit too modern [Trek owned etc.]..

So cool cruising around on Thumbies too, forgot how good they actually are!
