Yes, it was me :wink:

With the help of Mr Zero, I've secured an early Fat SAB for a great price.. This is going to be Beaut.. Respray, shock rebuild, pivot bushings replacement, the works.. 8)

Have a stack load of great kit to go on this too so it's going to be a bloody cracking Xmas in London for me :D

Looks like a nice project, although I suspect that the rear end lacks a bit of stiffness.

Matt,

nice deal! Looks like you will indeed have a lot of projects on the go when you get back to Blighty!

Nice and simple looking aren't they. My kind of FS frame.

Nice buy.

we're saying nothing Gus!

Matt - nice buy with SAB frame. That will make a sweet build. Are you considering AMP forks? Theres some on 'bay now.

Cheers guys, it should make a really nice project.. Going to take a bit of time [like maybe from now until November 15 :wink: ] to work out what colour I'm gonna spray the front triangle.. Argus did the job on my GT so I reckon I'll get a few quotes from them; at the moment I'm gunning for the green one side/blue t'other job as featured in MTB Pro here and here..

Whaddyarekkon?

As for suspension forks, I've never had anything other than Rock Shox :oops:

The blue/green will look 8) . I could suggest another combo but thats for my winter project and wouldn't suit a SAB anyway.

Mag21SL Ti's are the obvious choice forkwise but I think some AMP's might look good. Just my opinion.
