Stopping is taken care of by some SRAM Guide RS brakes and there’s a very personal Renthal cockpit too…


Price: £3500 (before pimping)

    For years I’ve waited for a nice picture of a gimbal in FGF and here it is. What a beauty!

    another mucky nutz copy. It’s a good example of how people will jump on someone elses design.

    The fix it sticks looms fairly pointless. For who/when would they be useful? On the trail? Nah big, heavy and limited use (plus flimsy site pouch). In a tool box? Nah I already have better suited tools to cover their use (and cheaper).

    Above should read:

    I’m having problems getting my hope grips to grip the bar. Even tightening them to the point where Allen keys have twisted I still get slippage

    Had that trouble with the hope grips too, ended up with a layer of gaffer tape underneath.

    But they’re shit anyway so didn’t last long.

    Liking the dropper post seatclamp – very neat. May just order me one of those.
