And it rides pretty good. Need to lengthen the chain a bit and muck about with the front mech too.

Got the cable threaded in the end - I used a wire coathanger than I pushed in from the stay hole and it somehow amazingly appeared in the top cable exit. Impressive stuff. So I taped the outer to one end and pulled it through. Job done!

A lot effort went into it, enjoy it!

Jez, that looks ACE!
Bet it 'sounds' great to, what with the disc drive rumbling, the front disc rattling (presume it's a floater) and the hollowness of the frame.
Love to see that build in the flesh, never seen a trimble live.
By the way is the disc a replacement for the pro or have you still got that on the Yo?
Cheers well done
alan.

It is a heavy beast tho. Well its a lot heavier than the others....

I think its also the first bike Ive ever known where the front end is heavier than the back!
