    Picked up an Alpine from the ex Dirt team in UK.

    Looking to replace bars with some alloy Funn and the rims soonish after the 521s took a couple of dings :wacko: Need some black xt cranks as well :rockon:

    Old school die hard on the 755 calipers and 9sp? Clutched derailleurs are a must on oranges to avoid the classic rattles. Still love it. You should sell it to me cheap.

    Thanks everyone!
    It's a pretty fun ride. You can get a bit more rowdy and case bigger jumps in comparison to the five.

    Brakes are still going well. And I'd run an xo 9spd if I could find the sram derailleur. I never have the clutch on any of the bikes with a full guide. I'll get 11 speed when I move to somewhere with hills. It'd probably be cracked if I were to sell it. :smokin:

    My alpine does like getting more rowdy than my Five....however, I'm 90% sold on taking the Five on the TransNZ this year. Climbs and pedals so much better, and I think I'm generally faster on it on the descents....on most sections. Have just bought another Five frame. Looking forward to getting it. :woot:

    I'm not too sure. Mid 14 to mid 15's at a guess. I'll look to swap out the tyres for the double down maxxis due a few holes tearing through the canvas :wacko:
