    Cool, Thats my first Phot posts!!!

    This is my new frame, a Large Morewood Shova which replaced my 2007 Stumpy FSR Expert. Loved the old stumpy but I was after somthing a bit more robust for my 15 stone.

    After demoing an Orange 5 and Prophet I chose this as the Large Shova fits me better than the 18" or 20" 5.

    Thanks to those people who responded to my various posts about "which new frame I should get" blah blah blah.

    Oh and please, don't tear my garden up for arse paper!!!

    :DIts defo got functional styling!! I must admit though I do like that.
    Also the Forward facing seat slot, continuous cable outers and being able to service the pivot easily apealled to me after the FSR susp on my stumpy.

    The Dogs the one with the Balls, RocKeTdOg!!

    Well Spotted ChunkyMTB, he's Tyler our 3 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback.

    Chameleon78, You ain't having his Balls Off…….

    He's a cracker! They are my fav dog.

    Your bike looks a right giggle too. Nice build.

    bakes, the Shova is 145mm rear travel (Morewood used to measure their travel in a different method to other brands which meant the amount of travel came out slightly less (135mm). This is why on the M'wood site there is actually 2 different amounts of travel stated for the Shova.)

    Rockthreegozy's bike above is the Shova LT I believe which they no longer make. That is close to 200mm of travel I think. Its super nice by the way!!

    Cheers Chunky, He's (the dog) great. we've had him since he was 7 weeks and he's good as gold, heals off the lead and sits off of paths/ trails etc for cyclists.

    I'm really pleased with how the bike has built up. She rides real nice!!

    The frame was my Birthday Present from my Wife. Top Pressie!!

    That's a handsome beast.

    And the bike's nice too.

    I want a ridgeback but unfortunately my wife used to have one and knows that they grow to be bigger than her.

    The dog loks really proud of your bike, looks like he can't wait to get out on the trails with you!
