Not sure if there is a difference between the bottle rocket and the bandit, I wasn't paying that close attention to @Scotty Ts post. The frame I linked to is NOS at supersport. Was considering it a while ago but 1k is still a bit rich for me for an old frame.wait, what?
the Bottle rocket hasn't been made for years, was this a new frame or NOS?
Close the area off for vehicles, install trail cameras... The council are pretty slack. I don't think I've even see so much rubbish in the bush. They need to get that cleaned up.Cable tied my faux-pro to my hellmutt and toured the local wilderness. We usually avoid these tracks, for obvious reasons.
"Wilderness" was used in a very tongue-in-cheek way.you local wilderness looks more like a rubbish dumb.... there are some fuckwits out there
The video doesn't do it justice, to be honest. There are quite a few burnt cars around. Even a 6 ton tip truck. There are a couple of near complete house demos in there too. I gave up complaining to council and recently set the EPA on them. Some of the watercourses have 200 lt waste oil drums in them. At least one was full.Close the area off for vehicles, install trail cameras... The council are pretty slack. I don't think I've even see so much rubbish in the bush.

Pretty much this with some custom dimensions:Is that fork off the shelf or a custom jobbie?
@sane - Initial impression is the fork feels nice (bike path ride and a few gutters only so far). It does have a little (struggling for an adjective here tuning fork 'vibrato' when walking it around unloaded, but with rider on board it's all smooth. If you focus on it you can feel slight fore-aft flex over trail imperfections, but it also means there's enough give to soften road cracks and tree-root ripples in the ashphalt. There's no discernible lateral flex when cornering.I'll hopefully get to take it for a spin tonight, and will let you know how it goes. I'll also chuck up a PYR for the new frame when I've got the bike built up.
Made in Tennessee?
