You could go the suspension way...a nice pair of blue SID's would look great!

How's the hunting coming along?

Hi rich, I've got to go with a rigid theme so sus is out on this build.
Got a deal going on with Rody, hopefully going to build me a Yo copy fork, as he's building one up for a Yo aqua that he's scored on the bay.
Things have gone a bit slack in the 'bike build' department, I've just dropped £700 on a roof rack for my defender! Trying to sort my camping accommodation out for the 2006 season. I'll be the idiot sleeping in a tent on the top of my car! Still on track thou to take a couple of bikes to the ssmm meet, properly have room in the tent for the bikes!!
cheers alan.

Looks like Alan has finished his ti-fat. If these ti fats keep appearing they could win BOTM from now 'il Christmas.

Looks awesome, especially with the Big One copy forks welded up expertly by Rody.

elev12k, well spotted! that magazine article has been the theme around the re-fit that i've been undertaking for the last six months or so. I want to post some puker pictures as soon as the project is finished. The bike is a 'runner' now, but I have to still source a nos/mint flite saddle, and as scant has noted either a blue moby or a ti syncros post. cheers. Also at the moment I'm running SS7 levers and would prefer grafton/paul, but I've completed so that at least I can roll around the block, sorry folks but this one is surely a 'garage queen'. cheers alan.

29.4 isnt the easiest size to find blue ringle or syncros ti posts. I've had zero problems with shims if thats an option :)

I remeber that MBA test.. er too well :oops:
"that liddle blue fat chance was a e ticket the first chance of the cranks... climbs like a helium baloon escaping from a 2 yr old.." etc etc ;)

scant, cheers for that, i've got a 29.4>27.2 shim that came with an IF frame that I'm not using in that frame, have you got a shimmed post in your Ti Fat? If so this could open up the search parimeters some what. cos i like a smaller frame with long seatpin, i've got a 420 fitted at the moment. thanx.
