    Quite a small operation here in the UK - not sure how well they are known in the US?

    Anyway, here's mine. It's a limited run of 631 tubed frames - fantastic to ride all kinds of stuff.

    Nice build mate... Thinking of getting one myself, as the Sirius frame gets great reviews all the time! And I know one of the founders..

    Wow dude.. That's nice! Do I spot a Middleburn?

    I have two Sirius frames on their way from UK and I have high expectations.. One in CrMo 4130 (as yours) for a friend and one in special edition Reynolds 631 for myself.

    I'll post pics as soon as I get them :)

    Yep, there's a middleburn crankset on there. also on there is:

    RS Revelations 426
    Hope Pro IIs on Stans 355 rims
    XT gearing
    Thomson ELite post
    FSA KForce riser bars
    Avid Juicy 7 brakes

    Might get a red hope headset to finish off the look but probably when the FSA one wears out.

    You wont be disappointed in the frame. What you gonna spec it out with when it arrives?

    Pretty nice build you got there..

    Well I'm going to use it for racing, so:
    Rockshox SID Race 09 100mm
    Shimano XTR/XT drive
    Avid Elixir R brakes
    DT Swiss 4.2D hoops on XTR hubs
    Selle Italia SLR TLD saddel
    Conti Race King 2.2
    Ritchey WCS stem and handlebar
    PZ Racing seatpost.

    Just a quality build wich should deliver a fairly light, abuse-ready XC/trail-racer..

    good choice of colour! ;-)

    look forward to seeing it when you've built it all up.

    Thank you, but it was the only one left in my size, so I didn't really have a choice :)

    I orderd all the parts yesterday.. Looking farward to it myself.

    What's the latest Drea? Have the bits arrived and is it built? If you're anything like me i'd have it built within 2 hours of the last part arriving!!

    Nice, i like the blue with the white components. A white bar might finish it all off a treat. I'm thinking about putting a red headset on mine.

    Never seen the sirius built up with 100mm xc forks. will look forward to hearing how you find the geometry with that set up. I have the revelations on mine and find that the most comfortable setting is 130mm, each to their own tho. I do drop the travel to 100mm for climbing but thats more to counter my 60mm stem and the way that likes to lift the bike. if i had a longer stem and therefore more weight on the front i'm not sure i'd mess with the travel and just stick it at 130mm and leave it there.

    So far the 100mm. is great.. When What MTB reviewed the frame they liked it best with 100mm.

    What size mount is your front der.? My E-type blows ****, so I need a frame monted version. Will the 28,6mm do?

    i'd be pooping my pants that the bike would go into the drink while i stood back to take that photo!!

    honestly cant remember what size mech. i just got one of those deore ones that are multi pull and multi diameter and stuck it on. dont think its got any spacer so probably 28.6mm is about right.

    It might be most neutral at about 120mm in my book but i just like that safety feeling of when the ground points down the bike wont be too twitchy.

    New picture in prev post. Striped the paint off it and gave it cleancoat. Looks awsome! New parts too.
    Hope Pro 2 laced with DT Aerolite on FRM 333 and a KCNC 2x9.
