Bought this off Don't need stabilizers from here last month and I've built it from parts from my old Kona Cindercone and some New Rockshox Revelations.
Done it as a cheap way of getting a decent full sus due my impending house move with the Mrs I couldn't (wasnt allowed to) buy a new 3k toy.
Only had 3 rides on it so far but I'm loving it.

Looks nice! Could lose more weight and lose the chain guide if you've a clutch mech fitted as well?

Yeah I could do, chain guide was already fitted on the bike so I've left it on to see how it runs first. I properly will end up taking it off though mainly because its a bit noise'y
