  1. Must admit I haven't ridden it yet as need to get the rear wheel re laced up. But I have a longer Thompson Stem sitting around spare if need be.
  2. Here's a pic of her now complete. Other than getting the rear wheel relaced and the front trued up she's finished.
  3. Here is one the above frames almost finished, just waiting on a few bits to arrive like seat post, peddles, stem, and front brake so can then finally take it for a ride. Also have a matching planet x saddle to replace the out of place mini seat.
  4. Is it for the zebdi? I'm having a similar dilema but thinking of trying a trialtech stem with the pair of old tryall bars i got with the frame first, well before shelling out on more anyway.
  5. He still has a pashley mhz too but prefers his onza. There's a few others of us from that era still kicking about. Shame we've got old and not kept it up to be honest. So much harder now than 15 years ago.
  6. Personally I think the little story made it, some good riding also but it had I think a very well put together feel to it, even the music fits perfectly.
  7. I have a set of azonic bars but actually prefer these and couldn't find a stem to fit them. As for the rim no thanks this is fine. It's built as I want it so fits perfectly what I want it too, besides I have 3 bikes so I won't be killing this anytime soon. And this has a middleburn pro trial bashgaurd it's just smaller.
  8. Here it is. Other than an inner gear cable she's finished.
  9. I'm loving this. The corners and bending machine look spot on and also your welding is loads cleaner.
  10. Doesn't need a higher stem it isn't a modern bike is it. I've been through finding the best set up back in the day (late 90s onwards) and know this will work much better than a high front end. And again the seat is temporary as I said.
  11. Here's my oter more modern bike which I've treated to a pair of pro 2s today so finally can get rid of the freewheel up front
  12. Yeah I don't much like the mini seat either. Why go dx32 when this rim was sat in my garage doing nowt and free. Anyway elite fatso ora BMF would be the ones to go for but couldn't find either.
  13. So sorry to bore some of you who will not want to look but I recently baught another one after killing one years ago. I've almost finished building it up and it's starting to look awsome. It's also a better spec than my old one too. Bb and cranks (burns rs7 with po trials bash, although it has been reduced in size and barely covers a 22 tooth chainring) will be on as soon as I've got the bb threads cleaned through. Just need a seat set up and clamp, a shifter and a chain. What d'yall think?
  14. I bought one off him fully built, yeah it was second hand but still in very good nick and to be honest I cant fault it. yeah there's better frames out there and yeah theres frames that look nicer and have higher build quality but at the end of the day not with the price tag he was using so yeah maybe he couldn't compete with the main manufacturers but for what he charged if you were clear enough with your pds then you got what you asked for.
