Hi something I have been working on during the current lockdown,

Thanks to everyone who has let my buy parts, and too Gm the Gt guru for letting me buy this frame/fork combo from him in February/March time.

8) yes very nice.

Hopefully you can overcome the image upload issues your having, would be great to see more pics of this. Btw John has increased the image upload size the other month and is now 3mb so a lot of images dont need resizing anymore.

Some of them are over 4mb plus for some reason when I upload them, they are the wrong way round!

Just weighed it and it’s lighter than my 1990 Xizang, due too that being 20” and the psyclone being a 19”

Plus over the years shimano must have placed there parts on a diet, and the crossmax wheels will help.

Frame only is 1/2 lb lighter. Mind you..I give zero thoughts on frame weight: it´s all about stiffness, geometry, shock dissipation and handling.
