  • fwarrr... it is one bloody sexy frame...

    I'm building up a 29er scandal in british racing green, can't stop stroking the frame :lol:

    Btw, any chance I could get a pic of how the rear caliper sits? i'm intrigued, as big calipers wont fit!

  • Nice one, cheers Nick!

    Pretty sure a mono mini will fit in there lol!

    Yea i'm going for the rigid 29er option, should be fun!

    Hows the hope headset? I'm going gold hope parts all over because i'm a loser lol!

    660mm not long enough for you?

    Looks amazing. Good to see a geared version with the slot drop outs.

    I was thinking of getting one myself and was wondering if there is much faf getting the rear wheel on and how far in the slot do you have it? I know my brakes will fit as I have Avids too.

    i have the wheel as far in the slot as it will go just to make life easy as for fitting you just pull the chain out and over the cassette then push the wheel in easy 2nd time round lol

    I thought that would be the easiest and best way. Do you still have good clearance by the BB? Is the brake easy to fit? I was also a bit concerned about the mech hanger getting bent but I think i'll get one anyhow.
  • nik youngnik young Posts: 257
    yeah the brake fits just like normal,and there plenty of room round the bb area

  • its really nice to ride, ive ridden every weekend since i got it and i love it and its so cheep lol,as for the brake its just a standard is mount like any rear brake :lol:
