Postby jaysonski » Fri Dec 14, 2012 10:59 am

I was impressed how easy to the frame was to strip & rebuild & say a big thank you to Dave Marsh at Universal Cycles at Maltby for repainting the frame & rockers for me!

Personlly if it's garish in your face colours, I love it. I think there's too much stealth black and bog standard colour schemes - love it when people get original!!

I couldnt agree more, most bike these days look the same, all hydroformed swoopy tubes, the only way to get original is with colour, i went a 'bit mad' with my last 2 build's for myself as you can see! :D

I really want one of these frames. I tried one and they are a great ride. Just waiting for a large 2008 or later one to turn up on ebay or in the classifieds.

Nice! I really love those crankbro's wheels!

Now it's not an MTB (I don't have one at the moment :evil: )....but this is my SS for commuting - my kind of colour scheme to a ''T'' Hoping to on a similar colour binge for my Cotic when I get the frame in the new year

Sucks you dont have a MTB, see a lot of them Cotic's about, they would make a good build i reckon, get it ordered & get some pics up! :-)

Lol, will do! Can't wait to get it ordered, been waiting too many years to do it. It'll be a slow build mind, but worth it in the end!
