  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.
  16. Crazy awesome!
  17. I see what you did there.
  18. After seeing this on FB it's clear that you both make a wicked duo. Hopefully 2018 you guys will be able to ride together and make a second joint edit. The vibe of the edit feels different to usual from Shub which gives it a new lease.
  19. Guillermo you need this bike for when we ride next, the pivot moves are really enjoyable to watch. Where is the location?
  20. Thank you. I feel a little selfish to have come onto the forum knowing this was on here. After trying to distract myself from bikes a little over winter. Karl get's all the props for dragging me out to Sheffield and re lighting my love for bikes. Taking the time to make this. HE A GOOD-UN.
  21. Sensational. I remember you saying that you feel you've gone a bit tech over bigger moves and this just totally contradicted that in the best possible of ways How you avoided your back on that bike flip bail I have no idea. The crowed wanted impressing and you certainly delivered. In 15 years time they'll be someones phone clip of you on YBF.
  22. You're Joacimnymann. See what I did there.
  23. Chilled riding/music. I like gaps so it'd have been nice to see the rail gap from the tripod. Enjoyed that Jordan.
  24. I also liked the vlogs of him riding street. He's very park and ramps so him riding Liverpool street was nice to see. I'd hoped for more of that but it never happened.
