Bought this off ebay, got the full bike for a decent price. I assume no-one on here wanted it because it's painted? Changed the forks, brakes, front wheel and had the rear rebuilt with a NOS rim. Thanks to nporternz for the brakes, justbackdated for a 1" steerer, and GoldenEraMtb for the stem :D

Nothing, it's just a bit long for my liking. Think the titanium one will be a better match to the seatpost too.
