    Certainly can't argue with that for £100!

    Maybe a new seat though ;)

    The Z3.5 bam forks were so cool.

    that is such a good deal actually, the rear brake on its own is worth near £100 quid.

    wish i had stupid mates willing to sell stuff for that cheap.

  • Woo that's great. I've just redone the back wheel and put a new spoke in that was missing. I would get a new seat but it's an original DMR and I can't seem to find them anywhere. I also got these FOX forks for £70

    I wouldn't worry about looking for the original DMR seat again, that one weighs a ton! (had one ;) )

    I'd go for a slimmer model, Charge spoon, or similar. Cheap, light and comfy. Good buy with the forks too! Has your mate got any other bits he wants rid of?! :lol:
  • Yeah maybe, really comfortable though. Unfortunately I don't think he has got any more bits :(

    I've just stripped my mk1 trailstar, it rode great but was far from light and I want to try something more xc/trail based.

    You've got a bargain there.

  • Yeah it weighs a tonne. All adds to the excitement though. What are you going to be doing with all the parts of yours?

    What planet are you on? I think you put one too many zeroes at the end there

    ok, slight exaaggeration, however, its still worth a fair bit more than he paid for it.

    Most of the bits have been swapped onto a Kula frame, quite a bit lighter, hope it rides well though!
