As some of you might know, i got the frame for 50 quid of the bay, however once built, im thinking it maybe a bit big, here it is with some bits so i can ride it, however i might be tempted with a swap for another frame :wink:

right, thanks to Marky Mark, i ve swapped the front end for an 18", had to buy a betd main replacement bearing kit, and winning some Mr T's of the bay i decided to cobble this, doesnt seem to bad, forks are a bit stiff, poss too high oil, but look forward ot giving it a thrashing

LTS - cant go wrong!!

I love mine, that looks like a great F&F combo, Id maybe swap the chainrings and stem, in the fullness of time of course.

How does it ride with a DC fork???

I keep thinking my z2 is too short...

the back end does sag a bit, so maybe the shock is knackered or its too soft, but will be riding it at the weekend, poss upto leith hill

4.7" rear, and 5.1" up front
