Old specs?

He's now on RaceFace Atlas crankset, RaceFace Diabolus DH Riser bar, Atomlab Pimplites.

Also get 26 DH tubes and you'll be exactly like Danny. :)

Last I seen he had 2.4 DMR moto tyres on he got from a German distributor.

Stem wise, he had a cheapo Jap stem Dave picked up for him on his travels. 30deg rise with a length of 60mm and a girth of 70mm.....Pretty much an erect chode stem.

Pads? Some light blue ones which didn’t make much noise, like little girls with Danny’s socks stuffed in their mouths, just the way he likes it.

A couple of his bikes varied over the years. The blue one that he auctioned for charity had a DMR deevee rim up front and didnt he run a Hope mono trials brake at one point? Yeahh im interested in his rear brake set up, the last time i saw it he had a blue maggie, and what looked like a trialtech booster. The rim had quite a heavy grind and using some blue pads (what were they??) but also at one point he he had what looked like try-all croco browns. Also, to whom who said the brake was silent- it isnt! Its just the way Danny uses the brake because i was lucky to get a quick hop on his bike and the brake was really loud when i pedal kicked.

In the new MBUK there's a double page spread of Danny looking slightly awkward sitting on his bike which shows off his setup fairly well. Gotta be fairly recent judging from the frame and forks.

I liked the Inspired advert with him looking dramatically towards the sky

And in the picture he had Saint cranks I thought?

Sponsored by poc helmets, shimano- saint and atherton parts also now.

Looks as if he's put on a bit of weight and now growing a bit of face moss too :lol: . The bike in the pic looks like its a 26" version of the fourplay, but it could just be my imagination...

If you wanna see that steed real close up, then checkout the latest MBUK magazine (free dvd inside) with Danny Mac interview. He's running quite a bit of Shimano Saint gear on his steed.

Is there any footy of him on the DVD? I remember back in the day when they talked to a couple of the Trials Kings, there was some Trials Kings footy on the free dvd.
