Only available to our lovely lovely Subscribers.Kona Bass (in singlespeed mode). 4X full sussers is the vague theme for next issue's bike test.2010 Fox Talas 32 QR15 (aren't fork names getting longer these days?)Shimano Deore wheelset.Shimano SLX wheelset.Matthew's Cotic BFe is finally back from SRAM Germany where it's been fitted with a Hammerschmidt crank system. The BFe required a fair bit of modding (aka chainstay crushing) to get it to fit - hence its trip to SRAM Germany.

Ben_Haworth July 20, 2009 at 3:23 pm Stonemonkey – I’m not at liberty to say really as a proper review will be in the September issue of Singletrack mag I’m afraid. stonemonkey July 20, 2009 at 4:33 pm Benji what can you say ?, would you buy one? my mates in the states so i need to act fast. Ben_Haworth July 20, 2009 at 4:34 pm I wouldn’t buy any bike without riding it, no matter what any rider/reviewer said. stonemonkey July 20, 2009 at 4:37 pm Is this one of the Wight mtn bikes? Im sheffield based and struggling to find one anywhere else handyman July 20, 2009 at 4:50 pm when will the bar ends be in the online shop thanks tangent July 20, 2009 at 5:23 pm In Norway eh?!…that’s where i ride! Just been reading of your trip on terrengsykkel. bit out of touch here…but by anychance is that Spooky frame from the old-skool builders of the same name (had a frame called the Darkside etc.) p.s. reveiw the YETI 4x if ya can stonemonkey July 20, 2009 at 5:37 pm Tangent yes it is but its owned by a old employee now , no frank the welder AlexSimon July 20, 2009 at 6:39 pm I was looking at the Spooky Horror Taxi on the spooky site the other day. It looks fabulous. There is something very ‘right’ about all the angles/tubes/graphics/etc. Lovely and not too expensive really for what it is. roughneck July 20, 2009 at 7:47 pm Dose Si know what you’ve done to one of his bikes. Ed-O July 20, 2009 at 8:19 pm Who’s the bald faced dude? nickc July 20, 2009 at 9:39 pm Is that Deore wheelset 20mm or 15mm or trad. QR? Sim July 20, 2009 at 9:47 pm nickc, it’s QR. HoratioHufnagel July 20, 2009 at 11:03 pm 4X bike review sounds interesting. Keep thinking about a 4X full sus for trail riding. Seem to be some of the few short travel full-sus bikes that aren’t aimed at XC racing. i love hardtails but they get a bit much on longer rides, especially on long-bumpy-flat-bits. Olly July 21, 2009 at 9:17 am I wonder what length the Bass takes, always struck me as quite a cool idea, and cheaper than a flow. they should do it frame only too i think, the spec on them is rubbish. think i might subscribe this month….. chameleon78 July 21, 2009 at 1:05 pm Any clues as to which 4x bikes you’re reviewing? Please?! Ben_Haworth July 21, 2009 at 2:42 pm Hopefully… Kona Bass, Commencal Meta 4X, S-Prezzo Gam-Jam, Foes 4X, Transition Double. chameleon78 July 21, 2009 at 3:06 pm Interested in the Commencal, would’ve been nice to include the new Tazer VP, Yeti 4X and the Morewood Ndiza, but can’t grumble! Its also a shame Santa Cruz can’t get their act together and sort out a new blur 4x instead of messing around with silly 29ers!!! Metasequoia July 21, 2009 at 5:58 pm “Its also a shame Santa Cruz can’t get their act together and sort out a new blur 4x instead of messing around with silly 29ers!!!” Funnily enough I was thinking; good job they have started messing around with sensible 29ers!! 🙂 Brother_Will July 21, 2009 at 11:09 pm Ditto handyman’s comment when will the bar ends be in the online shop?
