    The bikes rides very nicely.
    Feels a bit weird though as it is not as slack as my Trance or Zero.
    The saddle has to go though. It is horrible. A Charge Spoon will be fitted this evening.

    The MT500 brakes are non-series Deore with 2 pots.

    Oh its the mt520 that I are 4 piston.

    I've got a reverb coming for my zero bike, upgraded it quite a bit since building it.

    Ride nice except for the 26inch wheels lol that's the last thing to change.
