Hi all, returning back to MTB and my cheap build

Well just thought Id say hi on here. Use to be well into the bikes growing up but then started driving, descovered beer and women and it slowly tailed off, and ended up messing with BMX's for a year until I gave up on it all together.

Anyhow, after 7-8 years decided to get back into it as its time to get rid of the 8 years of beer thats built up in my belly.

Didnt want to spend a fortune so built myself up an half decent bike (tho probably not much to most of you)

Have been running the forks I picked up with the frame for the past 6 weeks but finally upgraded to something a little better this weekend and managed to go and have a bash at Llandegla Forest in north wales.

Made me realise why I enjoyed it so much all them years ago, tho Im so unfit, and defo not a climber, hoping that will get easier with time.

Anyhow, total build cost me about £200 which I thinks resonable enough.

    For £200, that's a very cheap build but very good bike overall.

    Running the marzzochi all mountain 3 forks, FSA crank, Agressor one frame, Mavic X321 front wheel, Halo Combat rear wheel, Shimano XT gearset, Clubroost bars, and Shimano Deoro Hydrolic Disc brakes.

    All in pretty chuffed with its performance.
