    Me too, but if you get that upset by people taking the piss, you’ve joined the wrong forum.

    By the way, you need to take the recycling out.

    Samehere – looks good!

    You going for the original stickers with model or just the brand name ? (think i would just go brand)

    Good work!

    Looks really nice.
    I had one but I got rid of it due to the crazy amount of flex in the backend. That and the fact that I was going through pivot bushes at an alarming rate.It went back to Trek twice who said it was fine.
    It looks like you’ve built it for aggressive riding so I hope this won’t be an issue for you.

    Would look better with less spacers under the stem with maybe one above instead IMHO 🙂

    The white on the swing arm doesn’t go with the grey IMO.

    Need to sort your hoses out too.

    I like the look without any stickers. Where possible I’m a no logo type of guy though.

    Thanks guys, iv still got alot of fettling around to do INCLUDING the b#stard stem 🙂

    Stickers are being made with a more modern look to them so hopefully they will add abit to the bike 😉

    Ok first of let me start by saying there seems to be a few trolls on here who love nothing more but to try an wind people up ! So if your one of them f#ck off the thread . This is my first ever bike build and im really quite chuffed with the outcome .. 

    STICKERS STILL TO GO ON;) bike before

    pretty amazing how a few change of some choice parts (namely stem etc) can make a bike look a lot more modern, good work.

    nice work, i quite like the white but would either get a white saddle or seat post to finish the job off.

    I think a good trek logo on the downtube would finish it off nicely. Good work 🙂

    btw the valve stems and tyre logos need lining up

    I’d reroute the front brake hose – it’s going to catch on the tyre the way you have it. Take it down the front of the fork and then behind underneath the bridge.

    Looks good 🙂

    Will this be a daily or weekly bump for all to see it?
    It’s nice but not amazing.

    Agree with some of the above

    white saddle
    no stickers
    cables & hoses need sorting as well as cable ties trimming.
    The routing of your front brake hose looks wrong to me, it needs to come round the front of the fork.

    In fact most of your cables look wrong coming from your bars, they should come from the lever/shifter over to the opposit side of the bike and down the frame, not the same side like you have it. Purely aesthetics though, they will still work.

    Are there any cable lugs for routing the front mech cable underneath the downtube, as using a bottom pull mech? seems to be a lot of cables around the seatpost area??
