Pretty unimaginative rebuild using the standard kit, but it's what I wanted so I'm happy. No cracks (repeat, no cracks) but as Im planning on using it and abusing it, we will see how long that lasts for ;-)

Thanks to all those who helped. You know who you are.

But special mention to Elite504 for parts and more importantly, lots of useful info and advice.

Very nice.

What size frame is it ?

That's some length of headtube :shock:

My old one was an 18", had a much shorter headtube,

Mine was sound but had been repaired at the chainstays, both sets of forks had duff elastormers so i replaced these with Wings springs then hammered it round a couple of trail centres :twisted: , was a dream bike from BITD but had to go in the end, glad i got to own and ride one 8)

It's a 19" frame, which as I'm 6'6" is just about right luckily!
