I have finally found an early muddy fox, I have wanted one for ages but never been able to source one that tickles my fancy, I got this last night and here it is as I got it,

>Deore Lx Groupset with STI and cantilevers
>16" Muddy fox Mega Cromo tubing which is round in the middle and square at the ends :shock:
>Wheels araya with LX hubs seen better days with Muddfox original tyres

Unable to control my excitement it now looks like this 8)


As my Saracen Kili is in need of some further frame repair I have put it on the back burner for the time being, I was cleaning the MF and headset was caput, I have a box of saracen bits that are doing nothing so to my luck the headtubes are the same size so a pair of RC35's have made it to the MF. At first I was thinking this will be wrong but actually think it looks the part, I have also added XT thumbies, XT short cage mech, Magura HS33's , T bone prestige stem, DX Saracen wheels and Easton Bars.

I have kept the chainset and cassette after a full strip and clean and replaced bearings in BB.

I now need to get some cable outers, black seatpost and a chain and it will be flying........................ I hope :lol:

O HAI

:o 8)

Nice choice, Mine rides beautiful.

My mate had one this size, I tried to buy it a year ago, but long gone.

Makings of a cool build, I was hoping to use a T bone but neither of the available 80mm High, or 150mm long worked for me :D

Great stuff 8)

I'm liking the printed saddle especially - I used to have one of those wheel disc things with the same print years ago! It's still kicking about in the folks' garden but one half has been lost :(
