looks lovely, a very considered and classy build. Hope the mudguard doesn't ruin it, better a muddy ars* than a compromised look!

Cheers! Nope, this is just a bender fender for the front- none of that rear mud-guard nonsense!

Well today was the first time I have ridden it and all I can say is amazing! Such a good bike, its miles faster than my specialized and feels way more stable. Also the slacker head angle & wider bars mean it handles like a dream too- I'm well chuffed. Wish I'd put some better tyres on though, the race kings hindered things slightly as they didn't really grip at all.. Me high rollers will be going on until I get some conti mtn king II's.

Here's a post ride phone photo:

Just fitted some new tubeless Mountain King II's, it will be interesting to see how they ride in comparison to the high rollers. Still need to trim the bars down a bit- 780mm is a touch to wide for me local trails! Also might go 2x10 at some point... Heres a phone pic- I'll stick some decent ones up at the weekend.

Tis a lovely bike fella, I'm looking to build a Piglet myself if the 2013 frames ever show up. Can I ask how tall you are? I'm 6'2 so on paper I guess I should be on a 20" frame (my current bike is,) but I'm wondering if an 18" might be a bit sprightlier.

Well I'm 6ft and have not had any issues with how sprightly it is, its bloody fast and with short stem/ wide bar its also very manoeuvrable I've found. See if you can find a test ride, I test rode the 18" and personally found is a tiny bit cramped. Fantastic bike, the harder you push it the better it gets!
