I think so yes 🙂
Oh and a headset? not much of a start to a bike build is it? 🙂
Hee-hee. Indeed. Hopefully a frame will be here in a week or so…

those crank bros wheels are great but does anyone apart from a bike tester for a magazine ever expect to ride a set- 800 quid!

Fist Commencal I’ve seen that i like the look of. It’s probably the wheels though…

As of today Crank Brothers wheels now retail for £699, also those are Cobalts not Iodines – look great though!

That 4x looks awesome, would specifically like to know if someone my height – 6’3″ – could have one as a trail / 4x/ ‘hack’ bike?!
it would be helpful to know the testers heights so we can relate their comments as usually that style of bike has a short seat tube which isn’t always useful for us gangly folk. Looking forward to reading about it, when can we expect it to be out? (I’m not yet a subscriber so not sure of dates)
I’m 6ft 1in and always make a point of mentioning any sizing-for-gangly issues.

I just don’t get those wheels. Expensive, heavy, impossible to get spokes for at a random shop, Crank Bros so the bearings etc will be useless… Why????
Thanks Benji, can you tell I’m not a regular reader of the mag?!

try not to crack the commy, seen 2 failures in a week and i know of many others…………….

Good luck with that headset, mine lasted a month of Peak mud and the bearings are not replaceable.

They are indeed cobalt wheels not iodine.
i have a set of iodine i thought they were good value

Sim’s hands are too small to hold a regular mouse, he has to use some tiny pen thing to control his Mac.

Pimp would be Marta SLs. Come on Sim step up to the line.
Sim said on August 4, 2009
Sorry Ed. Must try harder.

Can I add we managed to figure out how to construct the pendle rack without any fighting!!! Amazing!

Think we’ve inherited one of those tyre levers… and a pedros one as well… you’ll have to come back and get them now. how terrible!
IA said on August 5, 2009
Them big tyre levers (well i have the pedros version) are also ideal for changing fork seals. Pop the oil seals out no bother.

How is the tilting rack working out?
