After some pondering :think: i decided i wanted something bigger :thumbup:

i have used all the parts off my Pitch to build up this

'09 Specialized demo dhx4
Fox 40's :twisted:

I am so excited to get out and ride it just waiting for a direct mount stem and some fork bumpers to arrive.

I am also building a geared 4x style hardtail also to cover all the other sorts of riding.

I have a pic on my phone and i keep checking it!
i can't tell you how excited i am to ride it!
i even went to great lengths to bodge the stem on it that you can see above as there is 3mm of steerer poking up!

i'm gonna go to chicksands on saturday or sunday to get a feel for how it handles then hopefully hit a proper DH hill the next weekend :)

there is talk of a trip to cwm carn so maybe that on the 2nd
