Alright guys, got it built up and rideable minus the rear brake now. Took it out for a short 2 min spin around the block, and it feels so different to my road bike that i'm not sure how to ride anymore.

Anyways, the full build now:

Thanks am, surprisingly I love the colour combo! I have strange fashion sense sometimes though.

Thanks, I did this on a budget and my first reviews are that the bike seems very capable for what I want it for. I'm excited about it, and can't wait until I get the chance to take it on a proper ride after Xmas!

Well the bike funds got topped up today, so a new tech x2 rear brake has been ordered.

That is the last little pieces needed so this build should be about done :)

I also noticed the front chainring is slipping pretty badly, so I decided it was time for a new chainring. I decided to go with a nice red 36 tooth one, and that should completely finish the build off.

Once it has arrived ill post some pics.

So I have this up for sale now, not sure whether to sell it, or just ship it out to my father in laws house to leave there for when I'm back in Austria on holiday so that I have a bike. Oh well, I will see if someone wants to buy it at the price I want, and if not, i'll just ship it out.
