Not really sure if it's worth putting up my bike as there is some very nice machines on here but some my find it ok for reference so here goes.

Most of he bike has been build with used parts that I strip right down and rebuild. Still a few things i need to change when funds allow, like forks and seatpost but will get there in the end. Spec of bike as it stands is.

Cotic Soul frame
XT front & rear mech
XT shifters
XT BB
SLX brakes
CrossMax SL wheels
Raceface Deus crank
Charge Spoon saddle
Easton Monkey bars
Easton 80mm stem
Mountain king tyres
FSA headset
Rockshox Tora Forks
Cheap shitty seat post

I like, mate

Would love to do a self build and it would be done pretty much the same way - buy used and refurb !

Does it ride good ?

Looks spot on to me, and well done for using used parts and building it yourself - Just shows you don't need to spend a fortune to have a good bike.

I rescued him form a paintball place that was closing down. Was a laugh watching people's faces as we were driving past them with him strapped to the roof of the car.


@ Jimmybumpkin

Rides really well. The few people who have had a go love it.
