After much internal debate and lots of lurking on this site I took the plunge and purchased this 2nd hand Heckler frame of the Bay of E,
More lurking and taking choice bits of advice and knowledge from the STW hive mind I have created this...
(Reverb hose had to be shortened again, after I took the bike out of the bike stand - d'oh)
Built by my own fair hand with 2x10 XT (actionsports.de), 2012 XT Brakes (Rose bikes), Reverb (bike components.de), 150mm Revelations, Hoop Hoops (tubeless), Blackspire Stinger and bash.
Pictures taken on 1st shakedown ride before taking it out round Ladybower yesterday.
It's the first FS I've owned and I'm loving it. It replaces my faithful Carrera Fury that has been doing sterling service in and around the peaks for the last 2 years...
Thanks for the advice and help you've unknowingly given me
