I got bored this afternoon, so I built him up temporarily with the forks from my GT.
He's nice, quite lightweight but unfortunately the size of a gate.
Back onto the for sale forum for him, I'm afraid. :(
But a nice bike nonetheless. BOTM? :P

Ah, I see you've been using the appliance of science to put it together :wink: It's also my favourite spanner.

Percussive maintenance is the future, my friend. :P

I don't know which Mtrax it is. I bought it stripped of paint. Not a high end one though, but light! I quite like a Q ship.

I take back everything I said about that frame when you got it. It's turned out very bling-a-ding-ding...

That explains it, I thought you were using the "Terrys Chocolate Orange" approach to bicycle dismantlement, tap it and unwrap it.

I was waiting for a courier. But look, I have a new bike! :P
Besides which, I only do one ride a day. Best to leave a bit of enthusiasm in reserve, IME.
