Yeah, I got one. Need it today? I can stick it in a bag and pinch it under a brick behind the wall at the side of my garage.

Bikes only!! The race is on!

Jon has a head start but may need to stop for a bit if soggy poo action. Whilst Rob has the legs of Alberto Contador (before the doping)! But Jon may implode when he discovers tthat
a) it's not exactly where I described
b) it won't fit his hard tail

I'll give 4/3 on a Rob win!

Cheers Andy, I stole it first.

I now have a fully working FULL suspension MTB.

I was suprised to see it was plastic one. Isn't it suggested that a stronger insert is recommended with this type?

I don't think they're any different. I bought the full kit from TF and the inner looks identical to the original.  As it happens I've knackered my inner  :-[ it's really  badly worn. I've rotated it 90 and there's no play, but I'll be needing a new one  :(

The inner on mine has some wear but I think I may have saved it. Perhaps that's why you could use a harder material, as the original on mine is alloy.

Yeah, mine are both alloy. I don't see why you'd need a different  one really. The metal DU bushes might benefit from a harder inner. But i guess these plastic bushes should actually be ok with softer lightweight alloys.
