You seem well depressed mate.Maybe more time on the trails and less time thinking is best at present.
Yep, more riding less pondering
The only thing that doesn't quite fit on the bike is that chainring IMHO (looks a bit big like the ones used on the Kamakaze downhill
), i'd have to loose the mud guard and the pump but that's personal choice, the bike looks perfectly useable as it is
I made mistakes with my first build (Clockwork) and that ended up a mish mash of parts but i still enjoyed riding it for the year i had it and i learned from it too, learned to do more research on parts and not buy bits on impulse, the guy who has it now is doing far more justice to the frame than i did but that's cool
I've had my GT LTS eight years and i'm still adding and changing bits on it, i dont think it will ever be finished.
