Wahey! A proper bolt-thru fork on a Bionicon at last.
See that orange clamp? That's the "Magic Button" that does all the geometry shuffling trickery.

The fork and the disc brakes look pretty budget but we'll see how they perform out on the trails.

Plans are afoot for 2010.
We're planning on having some plans this year.
IXS X-Cronos helmet. We didn't really get along with the IXS helmets in last issue's group test so they've sent another one to see if that does any better. First impressions (wearing whilst typing at a desk) are favourable :-)

  1. Dont know about the colour on the Tuscon, bit hmmmmm.
    But at least you getting the Tuscon didnt delay my KHS arriving from Steve, just the snow slowed it down.

  2. that bionicon is possibly the ugliest bike in the world.

    eugh!

  3. Dangerous stuff typing at a desk, those swivel chairs are lethal on a decent!

  4. That bionicon looks rubbish

  5. The bionicon adjusts what exactly? Looks like it just adjusts the front fork and maybe locks the rear. useful but why would you have a double crown fork to go climbing with?

  6. It extends the rear shock about 1in (look again closely at the two photos). Steepening the angles and raising the BB.

    Some people will appreciate having a nicer-to-climb-with bike that also has double-crowns for the way down.
