    Thanks for the help

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who's has helped me out over the past few weeks. As some of you have discussed with me, it's been about 2 years since getting back on a bike after a serious Downhill accident almost taking my foot off at the Achilles tendon and shattering my kneecap.

    I just woke up one day and decided I really needed to get back on a bike. So I spotted my 97 specialized Rockhopper frame which was in serious need of repair and respraying so after some advice from the forum I took it to Argos cycles (http://www.argoscycles.com) who did an amazing job in removing and rethreading the BB and giving it a fresh coat of nice satin black paint and off I trotted to start building the bike from scratch with nice shiny new components.

    Thanks to the forum help I managed to put my bike together and I am now the proud owner of a one off Bike complete with an SRAM setup and a set of Rock Shox Pilot SL.

    So a big thanks to everyone

    Where's that "This thread is useless without picutures" smile that DBD has?

    J/K, congrats on the rebuild, I'm sure it's sweet.
