  1. Given that most riders still use ISIS, or even square tapered bottom brackets, I wouldn't expect anything soon
  2. IIRC the bulk of the exhaust is complete, though I can't remember if they've got a full downpipe section squared away yet (in fact, have they even completely figured out engine placement/similar?) Given the time taken focussing on the small details in each component, I don't think it's worth the time trying to figure out what's left in terms of getting it functional as we all know they won't stop at that level
  3. @Tom Booth might be the best man to advise on this
  4. Let's move it on a touch then - when do people think projects might be road legal?
  5. Can always postpone until the summer/whenever folk will be able to do it. Might risk it going the way of almost every other TF event ever though... Would be nice for folk to have their cars all sorted though, given how many people have projects nearing kinda-useable.
  6. Depends what you want to achieve, really. From memory those were fun little bikes and would be a good laugh on streety stuff, but they are relatively dated now of course. The good thing is that with trials being rather behind the times compared to the rest of the MTB world, compatibility won't be a huge issue on the most part. Looks like you're stuck with a rear vee on that frame, which some would be put off by so you'll need to make the call there. If it's for occasional use and just having a bit of fun on, I'd keep it mostly as is and enjoy it as a (presumably) cheap bit of fun. Switch out the contact points (bars/stem, grips, pedals) to tailor to yourself and leave the rest until you've ridden it enough for niggles to present themselves. If you're wanting to get back into trials a little more then ride it as is for a while, until you're able to pick up something a little better specced and you're golden
  7. Just another reminder gents. Still up for it if you lot are
  8. What an utter retard! Presumably you've checked the rest of the setup and will be replacing with meatier cable?
  9. Such a fun road. While I was staying near Brechfa for work for a few months last year I'd detour and drive up and back at least once a week
  10. Getting bummed by an angry TB.
  11. Decent CCTV camera and some Home Alone style vigilante justice. The camera is so we can all watch the live stream.
  12. For a bit of casual playing around and getting a feel for it it'll be fine. Never going to be as suited as a DJ specific bike of course, but to give you a taster or for the occasional session in the sun just get involved
  13. Pffffft. Only a Widowmaker for me thanks. Nothing but the best.
