Looks a bit less slack now there's a headset in it! :lol:

How does it ride? Reckon it needs some 888's on there though as the frame is quite burly.

Well it went out but roots were too darn slippy so went home early (all the trails are rooty). But it is very poppy. I was getting reasonable air without even doing anything. Not sure on the mudguard. Steerer is too long but im loathed to cut it. Want a black hope bash. Will change the blue outer to black as its a tad short and thinking maybe a black saddle. Stealth it a little. Sort the decals.
If i was to really push the boat out, id maybe get some m4's just cause (mini's work fine for me), braided hoses, short cage mech and hope ring.

Needs a decent long travel single crown really, those drop-offs are terrible forks.
Looks nice apart from that though.

It would look pretty cool with a pair of 66's on the front. They're pretty cheap second hand too, and the original ones are properly easy to work on.
