Nope going to try a smug powered build.
But that said im going to build up a HT from bits if I can get a cheap frame and forks for DH duties?

yeah suppose if you were to use it to ride uphill also.

but as a pure DH machine i would have a nice coil fork, single speed for less chance of chain loss and a tough wheelset.

I was thinking a do it all kinda thing.
I got the 29er for long fun stuff and trail centres, build a rigid 29er single smugness for commuting and a hardcore Ht for fun?

So this week i've been soooooo busy at work but i have still managed to get out and ride a few times and order a few bits.
Image

Mainly because my old chain was stiffer than a crudites "special" sock

Image

Bought a nearly new Joplin 4 to replace the Joplin 3 that died a death after a very wet sandy ride in Bedgbury. but its gold bling not red, i will have to rectify this. i could take the bits off the old joplin but its all wearing out or pink.

Anyway, new project to start :wink:

:lol: Hope you're cleaning it fairly well before it goes in there. Guess it's relatively easy to get it in with the roof down though.

Also those wheels look a bit of a tight fit... still there'd be plenty of room for some normal size wheels in there :wink:
