Rebuilding my mountain biking life after being robbed has been difficult for both financial and emotional reasons.
I received lots of kind offers of help on here and in my club which gave me some renewed hope and got me out on some nice bikes that weren't mine. However, every time I rode someone else's bike although it was great to be out riding it reminded me how sorted for me my old bike was.
I bought a secondhand Pitch last month and have upgraded it to get it to where I want and below is the finished job. Its 2010 Pitch Pro with Lyriks from Rob Jackson on here which are great, SLX drivetrain and brakes, Reverb, Merlin built Hope Flox EX rear and some chunky tyres
I like it but wondered what the crushing critique of STW massive would make of it?
Oh and the other bad bit of being robbed is looking with such evil eyes at every bike you see. Not sure what the guy last weekend at Grizedale thought of my Private Pile stare at his Marzocchi 44 RC3 Ti forks...
