    He he he.
    TBH, I never had a problem with the 2 I owned. In fact, I wish I'd kept the S/S Inbred (Custom orange respray just before everyone else went gay over orange frames) that I sold to Eddie - where is that boy and what happened to the Time Machine?

    The boy ain't in a position, financially, to be picky, Sandeep.

    Silver is fine.

    How desperately does MGO need a front brake? I have front and back Avid Juicy 3s going spare. Of course, I understand he may not be that desperate!

    ... which reminds me - LG do you want me to stick the Hayes HFX9 in the box? Its free, so if you can't unstick the piston its yours to bin?

    I may actually have an IS Hope Mini Caliper assembly kicking around and enough hose and fittment to make a brake...(If he can get a matching lever off of Fleabay) I'm sure it could be bodged...

    * Is overwhelmed by kindness.....sniffs*
    Sorry folks, working daft on-call sessions at St. Chav's all week so posting is erratic, to say the least.
    Waiting on a decision from MGO Re. frame - he's been offered a deal on an Inbred frame which he's considering.

    Jen - appreciate the offer but I've had "experience" of Juicy 3's..........enough to last a lifetime, tbh.

    Stan - see above Re.sticking HFX9, don't think he's bothered for the frame but thanks anyway. (he'll probably change his mind but , hey...I'll let you know by the weekend)

    William -sounds like a plan - let me know what you want for the Hope. What size frame was that blue thing?

    DK - once we've got a frame sorted I'll let you know regarding seatposts.


    Once again, thanks very much, on MGO's behalf, and if I find out that the little bugger has flogged it all on Ebay I'll post up his address so that summary beatings can be handed out. (Please note, however, he is 6'2" with a 3 times a week serious weights gym habit.)

    You need to define 'wide' to get it right fat boy.

    The frame is 16" centre to centre and weighs in at a whopping 4.5lbs (albeit with FSA ISIS BB, Hanger and Bottle Cage).

    Potential issue regarding the Hope...I've only got the Rear IS fit or Hope #3 caliper, lord only knows what I've gone and done with the front one :-/
