cheers, is just for ripping around the woods for an hour or two.

the stand is great, its only the basic model. 86 quid from a shop in ebay, but feels solid even with my 43lb nicolai in

it really i spossible if your patient. I built up a cove sanchez with brand new forks for £600. Mostly of ebay and stw, it was a cracking little bike. I then sold it 2 months later to pay for my first nicolai. I managed to get £750 for it. However you could now buy a nice of the peg jump bike for around £600-700. This build is starting to cost more then I envisiged (sp) but thats because i'm buying new hope brakes for it...... oops

Hi Ian, incidently why did you go for M4 front & X2 rear out of interest  Undecided

I've sent you a PM about the adaptor  ;D

Because you want more brake power on the front. I will be selling my M4/Mini setup soon off my street bike as its overkill, will replace with 2nd hand slx to free up some money, they do look sexy though http://www.complexdreams.com/pics/bikes/DMRTrailstarLT/

Thats what I thought, but with the new Tech levers I thought the modulation / adjustment was good enough to overcome this issue.
Personally I havent got very strong fingers & therefore rely on two finger braking as I've never felt comfortable with just the one. If I were to change I was thinking about going M4 front & rear to overcome this then if necessary put on a 140mm rear rotor at a later date if it became an issue

Hopes arent the most powerful brakes out there and not the cheapest either. I do like mine however I cannot justify keeping them on a street bike. Consider some 2nd hand SLX's which have the new servo wave which ramps up the braking power on a cam as you pull them on more, they work for Buzz.... I did have quite a play with the new Hopes though at the show as bite point adjust is something I would like but can't really afford or justify upgrading to them atm as I need other bits first. 183 front, 160 rear should be fine for most riding.
