Really nice bike!
Iḿ thinkin of gettin one of those too.
But I have a couple of questions for you:
- How have you drawn the rear brake hose? It looks on the pics that it either runs in the frame (which seems a little strange) or that it is drawn via the rear shock and under the top tube.
- In your spec, it says that you run a 10 mm axle on the rear, is that with the standard drop out?
The 10mm axle is with the standard dropout, it is one of these: http://superstar.tibolts.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=32&products_id=287
All cables and hoses are routed internally in the front triangle of this frame. The rear brake hose enters on one side of the head tube and exits just above the rear shock. It then runs externally from this point, down the seatstays as in a normal bike. I have removed the front mech cable to allow for the reverb hose to also be routed internally, as there is not enough space in the cable routing for a front mech cable and a dropper post cable/hose.
very nice. was looking at one of these frames (came here after you commented in one of my threads). one question about the travel on the fork, i was going to build it as a light weight XC/trail bike running 120mm only (there's a rockshok SID world cup dual air fork for £500 at on-one), what do you find yourself using more the 120mm or 150mm position on your fork?
If I hadn't stumbled across this post a couple of weeks ago, my pocket would be a thousand pounds lighter!

Very nice build there buddy,
Noticed your a brand censored aswell
M'eh, I might just go back to zapping it with frikken lay-zur beeeems. And sharks.
after looking around i have made myself appear a bit of a censored there yes. a very good price. they appear to have changed the shape of the top tube-seat tube join as the bracing is alot smaller, a look i prefer. if my frame cant be repaired i may be very tempted to hit the buy button. not sure whether i like the silver/blue or the black/red colour.
also what size bikes are you both riding, and how tall are you guys?? the medium has a 19inch seat tube if im reading the spec sheet right?
