Very nice Braylee
i've just built up a white one with 36 Floats. Only done a couple of rides so still at the setting up stage but so far so good. It works well enough with the 36's that I wonder if 32's won't be too short. I'll be trying a set of 32 QR 15 vans shortly to see.
Not overly happy with the RP23 though. It's a very active suspension design and needs quite a bit of pro-pedal for eficient climbing. Not a problem as thats what these type of shocks are for. However, despite the active rear it doesn't translate to the smooth or controlled ride on the way back down that I was expecting.
On saying that I've been using a CCDB for a quite a while so I'mmaybe just spoiled! I plan on trying a Roco TSTR and then the CCDB as well to see what the rames really capable of.
Other than that, it's stiff and handles well. BB looks to be a bit high(not helped by the 36's) but doesn't feel high on the trail. It turns as well as some low BB bikes I've ridden without twatting pedals everywhere.
Current weight is just under 30lb and thats with the 36's, 2.4 UST big bettys and easton flatboy pedals. 27>28lb is well doable
