That 120mm SID RLT Ti you’ve got in sounds like the prefect fork option!
I was too far back in the queue for those. I’m thinking tapered steerer though (that SID came in 1 1/8th iirc).
Hi Benji – It would be nice to know what sort of terrain and what type of riding you have been doing on this machine?
Julioflo – No probs. I seem to have been mostly in North Wales, West Yorkshire or Lancashire. Doing a range of riding from XC to Trail to All Mountain (if you want to use niche tags). A lot of steep-up, steep-down terrain. Wheels-on-the-ground most of the time but ridden as fast and hard as possible. Generally firmer, rocky or moorland stuff. Waiting for the weather to improve before taking the bike into woodland for twisty, whippy singletrack stuff (all the woodlands are soggy slutchy messes at the mo).
You’d have to be mad to take the adjustable seatpost off. In my eyes, you’d be losing more enjoyment and practicality than you would grams.
I hear you. And kind of agree. But I’d like to confirm/disprove if the pro’s outweigh the cons :]
I’ve got any uppy-downy on the big bike and wouldn’t be without it. Still think traditional seatposts have their place on XC bikes though for weight and ease (lack) of maintenance.
The Corsas coming in heavy then? Not weighed mine but they claim 1490g so not *much* room for weight loss if the claimed weight is accurate.
We weighed the Corsas in a recent-ish XC fork group test. I’ll go and dig out the back issue…
Corsa Micro Ti weighed 1830g.
Mini-update: have beefed-up the Pivot with…
- 120mm Manitou Minute bolt-thru fork.
- Superstar Vapour wheels.
- WTB MutanoRaptor 2.4 tyres.
- NS Bikes flat pedals.
I will be taking the bike out on its first Proper Mountain Biking (TM) adventure in the wilds and highs of Cumbria this week.
Report and photos to follow afterwards :]
