I've got enough components for three complete bike builds but enough frames for at least ten bikes.

Currently only my Stumpjumper and the Falcon Pathfinder I got from you big cheese are built up. The Falcon is fab, rides well and has not resulted in a major stack yet which is always good :D

Currently rebuilding the Frankenbike for the umpteenth time with as big a mismatched collection of parts as ever :roll: :lol:

Its an addiction, probably not healthy but we are at least surrounded by fellow sufferers on this site :D
