Hi,

Nothing has really changed since :

Thanks for the comments 8)

Well I guess I had to come clean sooner or later, the ProFlex is on ‘long term’ hold :-(

The reason ? I spotted some nice Ti bar ends going cheap which lead me onto finding a nice Ti stem going cheap, followed by bars etc, the slippery slope had begun … :lol: I then came across a Ti frame that caught my eye due to some nice features 8) (and price :lol:), all because of those damn bar ends :lol:

The ProFlex won’t get sold, it is in the process of being boxed and moved up to the loft and the XTR will find its way onto the Ti frame :D

The ProFlex will reappear at some point and I have no worries about finding any of the awkward bits ;-) I have accumulated quite a selection to keep it going well into the future :

Main frame
Swing arm
Rear strut x 2
Derailleur hanger x 2
Front ODS x 2
Rear ODS x 2
New RDS spring set
New frame bush pivot kit x 2
New Vector bush pivot kit x 2
Full Vector
Almost full Vector
Spare set of Vector legs

I don’t know if I will put a build thread on here for the Ti bike though :? I ‘think’ it’s a 2002 frame and with M970 / 09 Sid’s on it its not exactly retro :lol: having said that, it will be on V’s and have a nice selection of ‘Retro’ bits – Flite, straight bars, flat stem, USE Ti (When I can find another one…) etc. I might venture into the 98 onwards section and have a look around to see if it will blend in … :D

WD :D


It's all stored safely and isn't for sale - it will be built at some point when other things in my life have settled down and other projects are finished :D

The next build (when the airborne is done :oops:) will be for my gf which should coincide with when our daughter starts to ride :D she's got a hotwalk, the GF will have a u braked rock hopper in either baby blue or white with a unhealthy overdose of 3DV ...

WD :D

Splitter!!!

Seriously though apologies for not seeing that you had mothballed this project

The work you have done thus far is sooo nice and the thread is really good... Then... ... .... Like somebody had ripped the last ten pages out of a library book :-O
