What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

I can see why Felix loves it - I can’t jump for jam and it wants to get air all over the place.
If I'm lucky I'll get a run on it, look out PR's :D

Just checked the site, X01 price seems to be the same as the Nomad X01, nice. The orange colourway is pretty awesome too.

Frame is a solid couple of grand cheaper than a Nomad. Not a big issue in an overall high end build I guess, but I bought frame/fork only off @russthedog as a had lots of new spares and Felix is non negotiable on Hope wheels ;)

I'm definitely building the next one whatever I get. Been super happy with XT, Hope/Stans and the other bits on my current bike and prefer run out sale previous years stock to latest model.

They also look better.
Personally, I agree. I don’t think I’m biased. I like SC as brand, I know they’re a sweet ride, but the prices and hype that go with them seem as much to do with status as anything else.
The Rail is similar looking to a few bike at a glance, but not so much if you look closer. Felix could not be happier with it. Says it descends on another level, but certainly doesn’t feel 165/170mm on the climbs. Can’t wait to inherit it one day :p

Yeah, Felix is XT 11sp spec, but 11-46 rear, Zee calipers, and hope DH rims. I’ve run (still running) arch an flow for 10 years without issue. Felix killed a few Flows, hence all his bikes running DH rims.

I love the way my sc and intense bikes (same suspension platform) have ridden, but since all their frames have been getting pumped out of Taiwan they kind of "feel" a little...specialised.

I love the SC suspension platform. VPP seems to just work. The Revel reminds me of Ibis but looks more chunky and well thought out, and my mates Ibis I've ridden before pedals very nicely too.

I was mentioning to a couple of the SS guys the other night about previously complaining with 34/42 but the granny on the old Jackaroo seems steeper than that, will have to check out the actual ratio. And drink a glass of concrete ;)

Come and ride my old SC stuff. No one will look at you normally except expecting that a retro vintage ride is happening.

I'm almost as awesome on a GT too.

The FB SC pages are the true let down. Getting all matchy matchy with sticker kits and inspirational photos on top of hills. Seem like a dentists convention at times.

Were both VPP. Intense use their JS Tuned platform now and Knolly recently lodged a lawsuit against them for patent infringement.

We have an old Superlight. I used to own a nickel. I have plenty of Poor Mans Oranges, AKA Hecklers, AKA Oranges.

I’m not sayin SC is the new Yeti, I’m just sayin.
