    Nice job
    Should be seeing more of these out and about on the trails.
    Tempted to go the 29 option if the 27.5 falls to the oldest son.
    How are you liking it?

    It's an interesting bike. Rails as hard as I'm willing to push and is so much easier to pedal to the top of the hill compared to my Enduro 29. Need to swap the seatpost out to something 150mm that doesn't have a drop back as well. Sizing is near on perfect when standing but with the seat slammed forward it's a bit to long on the climbs. My dick is saying blame nukeproof for something geo related. But my brain is telling me it's nothing a new seatpost won't fix.

    I built it for some of the trail networks around me that have been basically paved so it suits them perfectly.

    We got the same bikes buddy.
    Your wife not french is she?
    I've got an X-Fusion Hi-lo dropper which is 125mm I think..does the job.
    Also got a KS Lev under seat lever post in a 125mm that I did have in there. Drop is ok for me, getting close to the minimum insert on the post though.
    Uphill is easier, downhill is often more fun while probably not being as fast.
    I'd be interested to try one in a 29. I like the angles on the frame.

    I had the seatpost dropped further in the frame than normal when i made that video so i could move around on the bike properly. 125mm just isnt enough which makes my wallet cry haha.

    I see you are in margaret river, im good mates with Rex and Nick at fatduck. Pretty sure we are all riding our hardtails at the WAGE enduro coming up down there.

    Will keep an eye out for you.
    HT won't be out of its depth down here. Not too much gnarly stuff to catch you out. Pretty sure there's style points for HT's too.
    Paper Trail is about as hardcore as it gets.
    I'm assuming the WAGE will be raced in and around Cpt 10 trails.
