    To be pedantic...The side sword, which looking at that, a sword that length is a side sword. Hence it is not a Katana but a Wakizashi.

    Katana is longer, Wakizashi is short.

    But Catana is cute :)

    Unless that's a tiger it's not even a wakizashi, its a dagger.

    Ironically I was a QA Tester for the game HEDZ (Character graphics bottom left corner of image) up at Dunfermline here in Scotland for about 6 weeks before it launched. Brings back lots of memories like being off my face on lack of sleep and far to much instant coffee as it went gold in the small hours of the morning.

    The ***** won't even activate our cabinet so we can receive fibre, and yet they're out in force elsewhere giving people Gigabit internet. How is this fair?

    I do find it odd given some areas are deprived of a decent connection. I counted 11 vans on my run the other day, they've been at it for months.

    If it's any consolation I grew up somewhere that was too far from the exchange for a decent connection, even when they upgraded to fibre 17Mb was the best we could get. Only having a new hoisting estate built in between upgraded the infrastructure.

    That front wheel looks crazily far forward! Maybe I'm just used to looking at road bikes. I'd definitely do myself some damage on that beast.

    Out of interest, why are the tyres labelled front and back? What's the difference?

    The front probably has a more directional grip pattern to allow better steering whereas the rear will probably have an overall more aggressive tread for forward grip. That used to be the case way back when at any rate!

    Slack head tube angles are the norm nowadays on trail/enduro style bikes, pushes the front wheel further forward for better balance and positioning for downhill riding.

    In terms of the tyres, pretty common with mountain bikes to have more aggressive front tyres for the grip (but more friction/rolling resistance), then faster rolling tyres on the rear. Losing rear grip isn't a big deal, losing the front pretty much results in wiping out.

    It looks great. But I hope that's not out the front of the house? It will be gone in a month.
