Never been into Mondraker because of that awkward hump in the top tube... This is looking much nicer - colours aside.

Certainly different and you won't confuse your bike with someone else's at the trailhead.

How does it ride and where do you see it beating the competition?

I haven't picked up the wrong bike yet haha. It does get a few looks.

It rides great. Very efficient with the big wheels, the suspension platform for pedalling and the big hits.

I've a fondness for these and Orbea too. They're both quite distinctive. You've also got a stunning spec on that too. Happy riding!

Sweet. Mate of mine is toying with the idea of upgrading to a coil on his Foxy as the small stuff can feel quite harsh if you're not riding at 110%. How do you find the coil? And what about the Michelin tyres?

You should get an EXT as well (they come with two springs btw). The guy who sells them in Aus is really good to deal with, not to mention, custom valved for your frame. No brainer purchase if your aftermarket options are DHX's.

@Wake Jake You owned a top spec Dune before this one right? The Foxy does look properly sexy! If the ride doesn't up end up being any good, you could just hang it on a wall and look at it.

Yep, would look into that for sure. 2 springs is a massive bonus

The coil is great! With the trunnion mount having thr bearing the sensitivity is great. The suspension platform is quite linear so I've ordered a MRP Progressive spring to give it some progression towards the end of the stroke. The Michelins are fantastic in all conditions. These are my 2nd set and can't fault them.

Sweet, will have to give them a try. Was wondering how the could would go on the linear curve. Another mate of mine is also ordering the MRP progressive spring for his Process. Sounds like a goer.
