    I'm using whats fitted to the AM just now apart from the headset/stem/fork crown-steerer will be changed to 1.5".

    Here's the drawing Karl did for the frame, the bottom brackets been dropped in height since this drawing but i still dont have confirmation of the dimmension.

    Theres also a strut shown from the seattube to the top tube which hasnt been welded so hopefully i'll get an updated drawing so i can see exactly whats been built.

    Also asked for white graphics and a custom sticker with my name which hasnt arrived as yet i dont think.

    I'm thinking that you can't beat the weight savings of that custom shock. You should post this in the WW board....

    Pretty nice frame!

    Still waiting for the 1.5" stem/headset/fork setup, using a reducer at the mo.

    It rides awesome, the geometry is spot on!!!

    Bits

    Got the E-Thirteen DS chain guide working altho it required a bit of messing and grinding.

    It was rubbing a bit on Saturday but i spent a bit of time today and its running super smooth!

    Didnt use the E-Thirteen bash guard as its mega heavy, used the gamut as it weights nothing!

    Also have the 1.5" fox 36 crowns waiting to go on, got black ones so should look good, black crowns / white lowers

    Looks awesome, was waiting for the build. Glad you are liking the geo and the feel.... The FR is a super sweet bike, am biased I know, but as an all round bike, hard, very hard to beat...

    Enjoy...
