    Yeah it's actually quite subtle! The green kinda just takes over and draws all the attention, haha.

    Yeah! Test ride at You Yangs tomorrow... let's see if it can buck me off in the rocks.
    If I rode a fixie and nobody saw it, was it still cool?

    Thought that bike looked familiar! My mate and I briefly bumped into you I think. We were the two muppets in the full #enduro half pot and gogs because we left our sunnies behind. :p

    Beautiful bike, even moreso in real life! how did you go with it over there?

    Ah yes... I caught glimpse of your bike just as we were taking off again and recognized it from the hardtail thread.

    Rode really well, actually.
    I noticed it was faster through the Cressy rock gardens than my previous ride. It just bobbles along nicely, whereas on the Spitfire I felt like I'd lost half my speed by the first drop-off.

    Not as rough as I was expecting, overall. Ankles, knees and back weren't phased by the transition to hardtail (for now!).

    However, my jumping has suffered. I'm used to having suspension to compress and help pop me off jumps.
    I'll adjust with more time on the bike I guess.

    Photo has been compressed to space and back by Facebook, but... weee!

    Weee. My second BOTD!

    Had my third ride on it today... Gotta learn to pick better lines through rougher tech stuff, but otherwise she's pretty fun!

    I believe I saw this beast at the Youies yesterday; it looks great in real life.

    I was leaving the drysdale car park as you(?) were sitting in your car with it on the roof.

    EDIT: Unless it wasn't you or your car and someone has flogged it;)
