Please tell me you're at radfest? Always wanted dual disc on my echo 24 but as I've not tried it yet I was apprehensive about getting a new frame. Your 24 > my 24 :(

Cheers for the comments, frame was gonna be powdercoated chrome originally but the paint wouldn't finish right on the frame for some reason :angry:

Need to get the brakes bedded in properly then hopefully I might manage a short vid if I'm lucky though I'm a bit rusty, and no I won't be going Radfest I'm afraid. Was unsure whether I'd be back riding in time or not so made other arrangements for that weekend.

Will be making a few upgrades in time as money allows, already got a Tryall 3D stem to go on some Trialtech SL forks (if/when they get the green light), brakes may get swapped for some Magura MT2's and the tyres will get swapped at some point down the line should Conti or Tryall release something suitable.

I must say it really came together well! And those stickers are so apt! I should start approaching companies for frame decal design! :D
The bike looks awesome as a whole whats its ride like?

Only had a little play in the yard as the brakes need bedding in and my ankle's still a bit sore. Sit's on the back wheel like a dream though and it's not overly heavy, will hopefully get those pads bedded in one day this week and take it out for a play on some natural though when I rode basically the same setup with the old frame at a comp in March it was awesome, absolute perfect for comps and ting!
