    Default On a big ass patrol

    So this arrived today



    2017 XL patrol with rockshox super deluxe.

    Weighed at 3.8kg on bathroom scales no idea how accurate they are.

    First 27.5" bike and first bike with more than 100mm rear travel. Should be fun!

    More to come

    I don't know why I expected this to be about cruising the beach front promenade scoping out big posteriors...but I did. The frame looks very nice. I believe you will be in for some fun times.

    Sweet mate! Looking forward to the build. you will not be disappointed with this rig, super versatile. I have one too, still dialling the shock but it's very close and feels better than i thought it would. Can't fault the bike, and your paint looks rad! And fwiw, I've just been sent a bb/downtube protector from Rockguardz in the UK, that's the only fault with the frame imo, no protector.. probably more of an issue with a carbon frame than alloy, but check them out if you're after some protection there..

    I've got an invisiframe kit to put on it so hopefully that will be enough protection. Was going to attempt to fit it today but was a bit hungover..

    So I just put my wheels together instead


    203mm front rotor and 180mm rear.

    DHF 2.5wt front, aggressor 2.3 rear both exo dual ply

    I've also got these things:


    Tempted to get a proper press to put the headset in with. Could also use it for replacing BBs on my other bikes as well but damn they are expensive
