    For the love of all things holy try and figure out what it is you like about it so much, it’ll make your life easier down the line when you inevitably change it.

    do you have the messy office, mismatching wheels and extra long brake hose blocker enabled?

    the question I want answering is….will you be taking a new picture or using that one when you sell it in a month?

    I want Fox 36 floats or vans- no dough for it yet though. Can’t describe why I love it. Its just right.

    Too small.

    Its an 18″. I’ve never heard no man, woman or chicken refer to 18″‘s as too small 😆

    18″? Too large.

    Edit… I think it was the hoses that made it look small 🙂

    Take some measurements then and note them down so you have a reference point for the future.

    Looks like you chose to go 26″ 😯

    No resale value next week then

    It does look small (you’re a 6fter no?)

    Aye its the obsolete wheelsize. Darn me I’ve even gone and treated it to a brand new Evo2 rear wheel as well.

    love how you’ve added in the separate pictures of the fireplace and the lawn so we can criticise them without the bike being in the way 🙂

    I’m bored, its Friday and I have a new frame. Well its not new I think I’ve had it a few months already now and I can say I love it. Till when then? Who knows.

    My worry is if it cracks I’m **** 🙁

    Got one, they’re mint. The faster you ride them the smoother it gets. Deserves 160 or 170mm forks, and worth experimenting with the slider if you haven’t already.

    Ace isn’t it- you can dick around with any shock and shock position on there. A fettlers dream.

    I think my BB is too low at the moment (pedals lost alot of pins from strikes) due to my shock being in a slacker position and 150 travel instead of 160. Will sort though with longer forks 8)

    Who are you burying 😯

    you could have bought an older one and with the money saved, bought an Islabike for hora junior 😉

    Having seen you ride (once) I think that one is a keeper, hora.

    I think it suits you. Nice.. 8)

    I can’t see it at work but no bother, it’ll be sold in a weeks time then there will be a gap of about 11 weeks whilst you find another frame then a period of roughly 3.9856 weeks whilst you deliberate over what to hang off it.. then you’ll unexpectidly* sell that on.

    *this may not be true..

    Still, get out and ride it.. 8)

    c’mon Hora I’ve got to ask, how is that so different to the 09 Five you sold me (for which I thank you of course 😉 ) which apprently you didn’t like ?

    Any road – nice work putting the latest patriot decals onto a much older frame !

    Always find it peculiar when people determine the BB to be too low by frequency of pedal strikes.

    10 Five not 5. Patriots got a shorter TT and stouter shock 🙂

    Im digging that bloody garden again tonight. Bloody hookers.

    Before I rate it – where do you put a bottle cage?

    If the rumors are to be believed hora doesn’t need a bottle cage:

    Hora – I think your memory is failing,it was a late 09, but the actual 10’s had an hour glass headtube (still 1 1/8) not the ring reinforced style that ‘ours’ had 🙂 No changes in dimensions or geometry though.

    You can’t go wrong with an orange. How much of a ball ache is it uphill though?

    With a 32T single ring I made it very slowly up from edale to Mam Tor on the road. Literally almost stopping

    Steel4real it had a kinked top tube though remember and was the five not 5! Tsk your memory

    Who are you burying

    Whoever it is, he used those hoses to strangle them

    Do you live in an office ?

    Bike is ace but needs a dropper post.

    Rating 8/10 ( without a dropper) 9/10 with one 😀

    Dropper? I’d have a Tmars but I’m too heavy
