Well, here it is in action 8)

Supprisingly, given the I hadn't actually ridden it before the weekend, and that it was only finished Thursday night, it didnt miss a beat the whole ride :shock:

Its light weight made it a joy on the climbs, and whilst it was a little lively on the rocky descents it made for a really fun ride.

Its a wicked bike; I love it :D

Sweet 8)

I've got to say I think that's the best one you've built so far (and I love the RTS & LTS!).

Very nice.

Excellent! :lol:

I know you wanted some more pics of this frame, so I must get some over to you shortly.



I picked up some ano blue X-Lite stubbie pro's off neilll at the Peaks, so will be sticking them on shortly. Also just put on some neat little GT stickers from gil_m on the forks, to replace the scratched originals 8)

I was lucky enough to see this build in the flesh at the peaks and it is stunning. Real tasty bike and I imagine really light too. All credit to you.

What size Zask' do you need? If I come across one what colour scheme?
Will be unveiling a modern build pre "Moto" Zaskar soon, just needs a few finishing touches.
