Benji Haworth August 3, 2009 at 4:23 pm I think so yes 🙂 D0NK August 3, 2009 at 4:27 pm Oh and a headset? not much of a start to a bike build is it? 🙂 Benji Haworth August 3, 2009 at 4:30 pm Hee-hee. Indeed. Hopefully a frame will be here in a week or so… charlierevell August 3, 2009 at 4:33 pm Those Maguras look MASSIVE! Sim August 3, 2009 at 5:02 pm I have small hands 🙂 kimbers August 3, 2009 at 5:09 pm those crank bros wheels are great but does anyone apart from a bike tester for a magazine ever expect to ride a set- 800 quid! nickc August 3, 2009 at 5:15 pm Fist Commencal I’ve seen that i like the look of. It’s probably the wheels though… 2pure August 3, 2009 at 7:12 pm As of today Crank Brothers wheels now retail for £699, also those are Cobalts not Iodines – look great though! chameleon78 August 3, 2009 at 7:47 pm That 4x looks awesome, would specifically like to know if someone my height – 6’3″ – could have one as a trail / 4x/ ‘hack’ bike?! it would be helpful to know the testers heights so we can relate their comments as usually that style of bike has a short seat tube which isn’t always useful for us gangly folk. Looking forward to reading about it, when can we expect it to be out? (I’m not yet a subscriber so not sure of dates) Benji Haworth August 3, 2009 at 7:53 pm I’m 6ft 1in and always make a point of mentioning any sizing-for-gangly issues. gee August 3, 2009 at 7:54 pm I just don’t get those wheels. Expensive, heavy, impossible to get spokes for at a random shop, Crank Bros so the bearings etc will be useless… Why???? chameleon78 August 3, 2009 at 8:05 pm Thanks Benji, can you tell I’m not a regular reader of the mag?! gohan August 3, 2009 at 8:25 pm try not to crack the commy, seen 2 failures in a week and i know of many others……………. legspin August 3, 2009 at 8:46 pm Good luck with that headset, mine lasted a month of Peak mud and the bearings are not replaceable. knott4me August 3, 2009 at 10:20 pm They are indeed cobalt wheels not iodine. i have a set of iodine i thought they were good value kelvin August 3, 2009 at 10:44 pm Sim’s hands are too small to hold a regular mouse, he has to use some tiny pen thing to control his Mac. Ed-O August 3, 2009 at 11:43 pm Pimp would be Marta SLs. Come on Sim step up to the line. Sim August 4, 2009 at 10:12 am Sorry Ed. Must try harder. Admanmatt August 4, 2009 at 11:34 am Can I add we managed to figure out how to construct the pendle rack without any fighting!!! Amazing! flowmtbguy August 4, 2009 at 11:37 am Think we’ve inherited one of those tyre levers… and a pedros one as well… you’ll have to come back and get them now. how terrible! IA August 5, 2009 at 10:10 am Them big tyre levers (well i have the pedros version) are also ideal for changing fork seals. Pop the oil seals out no bother. mos December 10, 2009 at 8:55 am How is the tilting rack working out? Comments are closed.
