So after breaking Cally (Gary fisher Sugar 292) by cracking not just the front triangle i did the back too for good measure:roll: The hunt for the new frame started, and the choice of full suspension 29er frames are limited at best and the price of the ones that are available is astronomical!
I contacted one of the suppliers directly and discovered they did a frame, but unfortunatly details were scarce and a few things got lost in translation.
So after Crimbo and payday i placed the order, 13 days later it turned up, Excited wasnt the word.

So then i get home after a long day to start the fettle and the first thing i did was try my shock for size.

Bugger.
Then i was meeting my mate to get the headset, but it wasnt the tapered one i thought it was, bugger :evil: so i now need a 1 1/8" to 1 1/5" crown race :roll:
but i knew i would need a couple of things, so a length of gear cable and rear disc, so not too bad.

Carried on putting the rest together.

That's pretty sweet!

Are you going to eat that whole box of Family Circle biscuits, as you've photographed them, you really should share them out with everyone on the forum.

Right in order.
Jon, very crudely measured it at 185mm eye to eye. which is sods law because i have a spare 165mm. Grrr

Spence, It feels very light at the moment, with the heavy 2.4's on i recon its 12ish but with racing rubber it will be down nearer 11?

Clay, thats cheating, but you'll get your kiss as a bully's star prize!

Javi, dont say things like that!

The least you could have done for her is clean her boots before putting them on ;)
