    looks nice, but is the duster OK with such long forks or is it just the perspective of the photo?

    Well i couldent risk breaking a nail, could I?… and the tyres were still covered in his last “roadkill”…at least,thats what they were smelling like!

    and dont get me started on the 1.9 pana trailraker on the front,2.1 mud x on the back! 🙄

    only just got in from the pub……

    thanks to gav for helping me finish off the build, bleeding the maguras was a pain to say the least.

    the photo has made it look like it has a 29er front wheel with a super odd frame, but the fork is probably a tad long at 130. i can wind it down. it locks down another 50mm on the climbs in any case.

    the bottle cage is from cannondale, i think i got it from crc, nice and cheap too – light as a feather. needs low profile bolts or it can obstruct the bottle.

    no excuse for the shambolic tyre tyre/logo set up, can only assume that it was down to a late night puncture job and forgot to line them up, i throw myself on your mercy.

    taking it out for its first run around ullswater and howtown tomorrow (today) and will get it set up right. i’ll try and get a photo that shows it without weird perspective monkeyness – tyres/valves will be the same, sorry.

    ta v much.

    pedants note – 2.1 trailraker on front, 2.0 mud-x on rear – grip of the gods and makes numptys like me stay upright in the worst of slop. mostly.

    CRC and Wiggle do these, but both out of stock at the moment

    took it over askham, howtown and martindale church. REALLY wet ‘n windy, got blown to a complete halt on the steepest part of the drop down to howtown, then blown off the track completely. rides very well, feels great. the fork has been wound down to 120, it was slightly too long at full stretch.

    Rear mech cable too long, apart from that, looks cool.

    nice one rolymo,still wouldent run a trail raker on the front though,oh and youve left the rear gear cable end to long……shh I did that job! 😉

    i saw the light at selkirk. trailraker on rear is slow and a bit over the top – no problem on the front (so far!) ssssssooooooo grippy.

    Noooo the light at Selkirk was when you fell off!! 😆
