    Default Poodle style...a second vision

    This may be the fastest build I have ever had! I present my new dirt jumping, street shredding, stair gap slaying, dead beat attention grabbing, free ride slope style whatever I feel like riding bike!

    The proof is in the pudding:
    Frame: Pivot m4x with Fox Float, 100mm.
    Fork: fox 36 talas 160/120mm, with special-k. (Adj low and high-speed compression and rebound)
    Stem: fire eye talon
    Bars: control tech CLS
    Headset: nuke proof depth charge
    Grips: DMR lock on
    Brakes: Shimano XT with Ashima rotors (160mm)
    Wheels: Hope hubs (blue) with Sun MTX33 rims. Yes I took up the brass nipple option.
    Tyres: street - Halo twin rail 26x2.2. Dirt - DMR moto digger 2.35
    Pedals: DMR v12
    Crank: saint 170mm (Zee 36t ring)
    Chain guide: e13 LS1
    Chain: KMC gold number
    Shifter: SRAM x0 (10speed)
    Rear dérailleur: SRAM x9
    Cassette: Shimano Ultegra 11-28t
    Seat post: Nuke Proof warhead
    Seat: DMR
    Seat clamp: token super light thing (with titanium bolt!)
    Grease: Lannox (my hands are so soft right now...)

    That's pretty much everything I can think of...there is a few headset spacers, wow. Anyway 13.5kg as presented in the photo, I've since cut the seat post. So bye bye 37g...

    Had the first ride today. The bike performed much the same as the predecessor, being awesome. The fox forks are really nice. I still miss the Marzocchi butter...

    Stand out components:
    - clutched rear mech (a ride free from chain rattling pimp slaps was nice)
    - v12 pedals are really comfortabe and secure.
    - DMR seat is surprisingly unintrusive. I generally like to y box style seats as they don't get in the way. This seat was never causing grief.

    I was a little over excited about the colour scheme on my ride out this morning!

    With a lot more grace than the pilot! The bike has very short stays, but a longish and low top tube. I don't feel cramped in the cockpit which assists in stability and manoeuvrability. The short stays help it feel stiff and keep the tyre out of the way when doing tricks like whips or transfers.

    Though Poodles bike would have been 4kg too heavy for Camo.

    I'd be safe, they aren't Nike...

    The bike rolls so fine. I had the dmr moto tyres on for my sunday ride. They delivered solid results. Given the rain on saturday they were shedding mud at a ralid rate! I have a wheel currently being built at the lbs out of an mavic 729 rim and a da bomb hub. Both are brand new. The rim has been in my spares pile for about 5 years! I will soon have dirt and street wheel sets.
