    Boardman on the seat stay may be a clue ....

    Now you have said "Boardman" I can see it quite clearly, before it was just squiggles. Nice colour.


  • 203mm disk upgrade


  • Out having some winter fun


  • I added some grip tape to the dropper leaver, this made so much difference

    Loving the oil slick parts
    Also converted to tubeless




  • Loving the oil slick parts

    Does that mean you like riding around roundabouts?
    Shouldn’t that cable/hose go around the bottom bracket or has it been cut too short?

    This was how the bike was delivered, but i see what you are saying, when i have the cranks out i will see if this can go under the BB
    thanks

    In all the photos I have seen of the MTR 8.x bikes the hose is routed as shown in robertbruce1983's (i.e. above the bb shell).

    That is how it goes. If you look you’ll see a little guide channel designed into the frame to take it over the top of the BB cups. It’s designed to stop it getting broken if something hits the underneath of the BB ( rock, ledge, tree root etc.) it’s quite a neat idea.

    Thanks for clearing that up
    It does make sense
  • New brakes fitted and what a difference they made
