update time..............its kinda finished for now

pre shake down ride was put on hold this week as did a "bounce test" on on the mint shocktechs...........and the top elastomers had perished.....to dust!!! stripped them down, found some spare pace rc35 mxc ones(that hadnt perished....yet) in the parts box's and jobs a good un :)

stem feels good but i rek i can get away with less rise, the colours way off too so im looking for a nice polished stem.....syncros or similar but affordable, but im in no rush. this is the only issue i have with it at present. gears and brakes need bedding in as per normal, forks take enough buzz out of the local routes and its a blast to ride, although at times i have to remember im not on a full suspenion 160mm travel bike with disc brakes on some sections, it inspiring but id like to not break it haha

first ride of hopefully many, first titanium framed bike and i like it

found a long 135mm stem, nice to look at but may be too long, gonna ride it to work this week and see how my back holds up, should be okay but a 110-125mm length would be perfect imho

That looks like it will turn out pretty good, like the XR2 in the background.
