    Wheels: DT 440 Hubs - Not sure what the rims are...

    Holy crap! Is it just the angle?? Looks like a sick bike. I always wanted one of these! Once they changed from that stupid massive curved top tube to these. that weight looks super light for the build on it to!

    Yeh it is pretty slack but think it's mostly because of the angle... its on a bit of a hill to, so i'd say the front wheel being a bit higher added to the affect...

    And yeah I have to admit that I was quite shocked by the weight too... The frame was surprisingly light though, didn't weigh it in but it felt good...

    If I was to run Boxxer WC and XT cranks it would be well under 17 :D


    Haven't had a proper ride yet, so I'll post a ride report when I do... What I can say my car park tests and the few sets of stairs I smashed it down is that the Roco Air shock works extremely well... It still isn't quite as smooth as a good coil shock, but it is very close...


    Got to admit I'm quite surprised no ones mentioned my brakes being 'round the wrong way' yet :P
