Similar but updated to my 520 Albert. 130 mm travel on the forks but maybe put a works headset in to slacken by 1 degree to for the really steep stuff round here without raising the front too much.
Mines coming un stickered in baby/powder blue 🙂 oh and will run Hope 180mm wavy floating rotorsiamjameswilliamsMember

scott_mcavennie2, what size is/was yours?
17″ grey coming here.
Apart from the rear wheel and v brake, everything could transfer over from the Dekerf with the Rebas bumped back up to 120mm. Virgin XT brakes waiting in a draw.
Or I might splurge a bit, put the rebas and the front wheel on the gf’s clockwork, which will be a great improvement on what’s on there at the moment.
Then find some or all of: SLX 2×10 groupset, Hope/DT on Crest/Arch and some adjusty forks: Marz 44 micro switch, velvet, Dual position Revs, UTurn Sektors.Posted 5 years agokayak23Subscriber
Got a 15″ 725 here.
1×9 at 34-34 with a SS chainguide.
Using Pikes at 140mm with no problems. I thought I’d end up adjusting them up and down for what I’m doing but to be honest they feel fine at 140mm on everything. I may wind them in a bit if doing some hardcore climbing.
Got singletrack rims on so may go for something lighter in the end but as it is, it freakin rocks!
