Finally got everything together and enough time in the day to build it.

Started with this which I got for a bargain price and the XX front mech thrown in.

Off to put everything else together now and will have the first trip out at Cannock in a couple of days.

    Finished after a fair bit of drama. Just the shock to be serviced next week now.

    Frame couldn't take a granny bigger than 24t so ended up just putting the triple back together. After the CC2CC I'll probably be going 32t single up front.
  • Nice looking bike.
  • Really nice bike that

  • Bet it rides very nicely too. I've tried a couple of Fuels briefly (EX8 and EX9) and liked them.

    How are you finding riding the Trek? Lovely looking bike and I bet it can fly round the singletrack.
    Constantly trying to upgrade my parts.It is a long road ahead as things are so expensive for little gain. n+1 is always the principle in my mind.
