    How did you manage to find any 26″ wheels? I thought nobody sold them anymore…

    Judging by the pics, he hasn’t… it could be a problem… will 650b fit the frame?

    My LBS sent me the build pics, wheels ready to fit (with spares)

    26″? Bloody marketing ploy from the industry trying to make a profit! Grr!

    P.S. how wide are the Thompson bars?

    Very nice. Those Thomson bars are deffo on the list, want some for the Soul.

    The full list is
    Thompson X5 Stem & DB Bar (al)
    Hope Tech M4’s, Headset, Hubs & BB
    Mavic 719’s
    Sram x9 10sp with XO twisties
    Either Lev or existing 950 for the post.

    Yep it’s a 26″ Full Sus

    Was hoping this would arrive before I went away for the week, but it will be ready when I get home with the wheels and the brakes.

    My first new frame in ages and my first completely custom build (not just scrounging parts from older bikes)

    Ooh – looks loverly.

    Did you manage to get a run-out deal somewhere? I am thinking I’d like to upgrade my Blur LT to LTc…

    I’m happy 🙂 it’s bugger all in the frame weight but the carbon stiffness should pay off
