Hope you guys like it. Just to add, its first ride out was a real special one - an hour and a half blast through my local trail - in the fresh snow. I WISH I had taken pics. It was one of the most special experiences I ever had on a bike. It handles so nicely, the rear just floats exactly how you want and the forks are just right for the frame's geometry. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you guys think of it.
Cheers for the support to everyone who advised/criticised and generally contributed to this build - this one's for you!
