    Very nice - have you upgraded it or built it from scratch?

    Its not an off the peg build, I upgraded from a GT avalanche 1 and took some bits from it and chose the others. Stif in Leeds built it up for me.

    Good way to do it as you get the bits you want, the only thing I've changed is the stem as I couldn't afford the one I wanted when I had the build done. :)

    i like the look of hydroformed frames, they're a bit expensive but look cool and have less weak points

  • Beautiful bike, but OMG, how many spacers on the steerer? Just get the hacksaw out man!

    If I bought a second bike It'd be remarkably similar to yours though, :)

    How light is the frame?

    Is it an XC HT or an AM HT?

    Not the lightest by all means.

    Its designed to do pretty much anything, Chameleon.

    Very strong frame, out of the two AM HT.
