  1. Cheers for that mate! Yeah I’m really keen on trying one and I’ve been looking at your thread. I’d be after a hs33 frame though and I’ve got a few parts left from my old bike, so it’ll be more of a mix and match rather than buying a whole bike. But thanks for that!
  2. I’ve had quite a few mod bikes and all of them being old model frames e.g. echo lite 08, Monty 221ti and a pr one, adamant a3, limey 320, because colour, koxx xtp 08?.... Out of them I really liked how the limey 320 felt. So I guess for my new build I’d be looking for a short wb frame, with high bb and a short chainstay as well (that adamant was shit to ride!) I was thinking to get a relatively newish frame, something on the lines of ozonys curve for example. I’m not interested in any of the top range scorpio/Monty m5/and other carbon frames (or voltron frames as I call them) as I can’t afford that and I bash a lot... Can you guys suggest other options for me to consider also give an opinion on the ozonys curve mod frame? Cheers, Nas
  3. I don't really have much experience with stock bikes but definitely go for a long wb if it's a mod mate. I am around 171-172cm and my personal preference is for a short wb... but being 180cm and over will be a pain to ride! Do you not have any friends around whom you can ask to try out different bikes/geos and see what feels most comfy?
  4. You mean a rim brake yeah? That should be fine if you're not using a brake booster/washers etc.. also double check for retapped threads, cos people tend to go M6 instead of helicoil...
  5. way too many punctuation marks mate
  6. Right, so there isn't a rule what size stem and bars to use. It all depends on the frame length (measured as wheelbase) and the chainstay, your height, and your personal preference. Some people like long bikes while others like short bikes. 150x30 stems are sort of universal and that's why lots of people use them by default. I've used different size stems on different bikes that I've had. You just need to experiment and see what works best for you. In general (as to my understanding) the longer chainstay you have, the more it will pull you down when staying on a back wheel. That's why you'd use a shorter stem with a lower rise angle, so you'd pull your front end higher/closer to your body and vice versa. Then rotating your bars (depending on the backsweep as well which is usually 10 degrees) will help for your balance respectively: having it vertical will help you easily pull the bike for pedal ups and bunny hops and having it rotated forward makes it more comfortable for static moves such as pedal kick, side hop, surge etc.. Hope that helps!
  7. to be honest I can't fault it mate! They were notorious for leaking but with all racing line bits (blade, piston, fittings) it works as it should and is quite comfy as well. Plus being all cnc and universal left or right hand makes it ideal I think.
  8. After a long time riding newer style bikes I sourced and built this fine example of a mod from back in the days? Spec is: Monty 221pr frame Monty handlebars Echo 150x30? stem Viz? disc & vee forks monty rims on front hope and rear chrisking hubs in maxxis tyres echo "dengura" lever with magura 2011+ slaves, echo sl clams & echo sl 2 bolt brake booster avid sd7 lever and vee arms, shimano cables adm in metal backings front and rear tritech forged cranks, trialtech 18t sprocket, tartybikes bash ring, onza hognesium pedals Looks and rides nice! Quite heavy to be honest and I can do with new bars and new drivetrain set but but that's as good as I could do for a start. Thanks to @old boy chez @Marcus Chapman @isitafox @murga and other sound lads who provided me with the good parts for decent prices! Jason is a top seller! Marcus always has the bits you need, not the first time I'm buying from him. Cheers, Nas
  9. I've always had water bled brakes and I've noticed they feel a lot firmer and more responsive as well! My perfect setup is with echo/zoo/adamant (dengura) cnc blades but nobody seems to have them any more... Anyway, I'm running adm's in tnn backings. Will cut them a bit as they are worn a bit uneven, hope that helps.
  10. Yeah same here. It's an old monty frame with an integrated booster and I put on a wee echo 2 bolt booster as well, so shouldn't be the frame but that makes sense mate. I'll try to give it another bleed just in case and see how I get on...
  11. Hi all, I was just wondering if the 4 finger blades normally feel a bit softer or is it my bad luck again? I've tried having them on 2-3 different brakes (hs33's) and it always feels softer than the standard magura or echo cnc'd ones. However, this time I'm having all the good bits, so it's not a dodgy setup and it still feels like the brake has air in it, although I just bled it... Is there anything I'm missing?
  12. Hi there, I'm currently looking for some mod parts and am willing to buy. Can you tell what spares you have and I'll offer you prices on these? Cheers!
  13. Haven't read all the comment, so sorry if I'm going against anybody but if you're saying you don't want to spend a lot on the bike maybe you'll consider this: My point is you don't really need the streety bits to do streety moves on it as it is mate
  14. On here
  15. How do I leave feedback on a seller? I remember there was a way of doing it but I couldn't find the button for it. Has that option been removed? Cheers, Nas
