    This has been a one year project, just finished today, can't wait to test and see if is going to be "trail worthy" :eek:

    Trail worthy in deed

    It's been almost a year since I built this bike and it has become one of my favorite mountain bikes.
    As a bonus, it has made me a stronger rider as well.


    The bike in action....

    Nope

    Nope, the bike is predictable and strong, a pleasure to ride really.
