Had my Optic C3 for about 2 months of nothing rides and it was creaking, it was the lower pivot just above the bb, pulled the pivot bolt and cleaned regreased and it is all fixed.
Enduro bearings throughout the frame but the bearing felt pretty shitty, I picked the seals and slammed some more...
2 mates and myself run Hopes (2x e4 and I run v4) and also find them to be slightly squealy in most conditions and worse at slower speeds, I've tried several different pads, bleeding, caliper alignment, piston inspection etc to no avail so I will be interested to hear how you go.
The black pinstriping you have done looks fantastic mate well done.
These are such a good bike, so you think you will do anything more?
I upgraded the brakes on mine which i felt needed it ( I am heavy so bikes don't slow down as well haha)
Thank's for the reply, I ended up going for zee brakes to keep the ispecb.
I'm not fit enough for 1x yet so it was going to be 2x shifters or the problem solvers.
Really happy with the zee brakes though.
Great bike's to ride
Hey mate i have picked myself up one of these also, love it but the brakes need an upgrade i think.
I want to get some guide rs-rsc as you have, are you still running the slx shifters?
If so did you buy some problem solvers to run the matchmaker?
