So, I've had my old DH frame kicking around for ages. Put it up for sale once or twice with no interest. So it's been just cluttering up my shed and as the young bloke has been getting more and more into riding and smashing rims and what not on the DH trails on his xc bike it's been in the back of my mind to build it up for him.

Going through some of the bits and pieces I had left over from the shop I realised I had most of the things it needed on hand.
