  1. I look forward to seeing this built and you dusting off the old cobwebs......... .....off the excuse book.
  2. Those look great!
  3. I just built those Spanks, yep those are V light. Not super confidence inspiring when you've got the wheel, dual ply tyre, downhill tube, pro 4 with bolts and the cardboard box the rims came still feels heavier. I didn't read the description as usually it makes your eyes bleed on CRC but "Spike" and "Oohbah" sold it. Oh and as a Yorkshire man, they're on offer.
  4. You can always justify it. Don't be sensible all your life.
  5. I've got a echo urban front rim I think this is 39mm it's dual walled and painted silver (just spray it black). Can send for £10 (covers postage). I'll get a photo of it tonight. It'll swap straight over with your echo Tr rim.

  7. This topic is the only thing keeping me entertained on this forum at the moment haha
  8. the 26" with green wheels is DeeVee rims with one grind. They only had one grind in the 6 months I had the bike built like that. Ran Rockman blues which were great. Edit: Total plug for a 24tour in the future Luke!
  9. I had the DeeVee rim's previously, lasted rather well. Think Ian Johnstone rides them on his 24" with no problems.
  10. Yeah it's designed to take a narrower rear rim to be fair, you're looking more like 35/40 but I remember on my first hex's I managed 44mm rims but I needed to run tryall clamps to allow my hs33 as much clearance as possible. So depending what you intend on running good luck with that
  11. Sounds like a rather nice buy. What are the wheels you're putting on the build? I just built a pair of 26" wheels for my hex and found great options for disc specific rims but not so many options for magura apart from Inspired, DMR DeeVee and Backline's. I would possibly try the RaceFace cranks on the bike promptly also as these was an option for myself but was worried they might with the 22t cog catch the frame.
  12. Gutted about this, hopefully something crops up about it. Online or locally. Dislike for people who go around taking other peoples thing. Happy birthday anyway by the way.
  13. Exciting, I like a build thread. Is the frame brand new?
  14. I started the dropout filing craze. I might have owned this frame previously as I had two hex's in the past. Just got a third this week.
  15. These spots and this weather looks fun.
