    The frame is in the post as we speak, I went 17/22 and it should arrive this week, my enduro has been stripped and the parts cleaned and my bathroom currently has lots of bike components as ornaments. Can’t wait to get it. email is roy dot susan dot bc at googlemail dot com.

    Thanks gents. I have downloaded a copy. I just mailed dialled about sizes in stock, I didn’t think I get a response for a few days let alone after about 10 mins.

    Andy, what colour and spec/pimpness are you going for?

    Aye I had one before the test and partly disagree with the test report.

    I’ve just rebuilt mine after raiding it for another project in late December. I was out on mine solo in the local wood tonight. Makes an ace, fun bike with a 6′ fork.

    6′ and 17/22 and it’s spot-on.

    rs- not sure yet, I have two bikes at the moment one is too big for me and the other a full susser is just too much bike for me, so want something I can have a go at anything on. Not that i’m into jumping or anyting xtreme. Sell the other two if poss.

    I was looking at an evil sovereign that was on the classifieds, but I was too late so wanted something just a pimpy etc.

    Plus they only have 15.5/21 in stock which as a shortarse is exactly my size.

    Ooh colour have no idea. Thoughts anyone

    I’m doing a similar thing consolidating 2 bikes into 1, here’s some colours for you to think about….

    Andygreener, I’ve heard a rumour that the price of the Sovereign is coming down to £550.

    RJ- that is very interesting any idea of when?

    They’re coming down because they’ll no longer be made from 853, but rather they’re using Japanese Sanko chromoly. Having owned both, and enjoyed both, I would buy the 853 (well, 853 main tubes) Alpine at £360, than a chromoly Sov’ at £550.

    Mildred- thankls for this info. Looking at the alernatives to your 853 Evil, got any pics of your Alpine you can forward on to me? Still not sure what colour to go for at this point.
