Yup, freakin sweet no wonder you’re the “proud father” however….pedantic singe as opposed to flame, first photo- cranks 180 out, chain on small ring and tyre and wheel logos and valves out of sync, still a nice ride !!!!! By the way , what size is that cassette it’s like a bin lid?
I used to think the same but, over the last year or so I’ve started to think that 26ers look odd.
Edit, It’s a medium, I’m 5’11” with arms like a gibbon. I haven’t ridden it yet, I was finishing off the build last night when the ‘nut’ that holds the fork bolt through came loose. The 15mm qr just spins round now.
No demo, I couldn’t find one to try anywhere. The only review I’ve found is in this months ST.
Where are you based, for a Twix I may let you have a spin. If you leave me with your house/car keys and your children.
Edit: I guess around the same sort of money, The seeatpost, drivetrain (apart from the crank), brakes, bar/stem were all off my old build. The forks and Wheels were off CRC which are cheaper now as they have a better discount structure. frame was £1800 as I had to buy the bolt through rear dropouts seperately. It’s a bit offset by selling off some of my old bits. Just the 42/30 XTR crank and Tranny frame to go now.
