Travel is 130mm rear, 140mm front.Posted 4 years ago
Few details would be useful like geometry and travel (150mm?). Be interesting to see how it compares with the Codeine
Why do they bother with the faux list price?
Codeine is slacker and lower. Similar travel. Chainstays are shorter on the Codeine, but you can get a front mech on a ElG29.
Weightwise, it’s pretty similar.Posted 4 years ago
Any news when the codeine will be here brant? Very interested in the xo1/pike build!
Our agents are saying that our factory is saying April 20th, all sizes, all colours, finished, in boxes, ready to ship.
I am unhappy about this.
I am pushing for an earlier finish date, for a limited number (say, just to get white 18in ones here) but I don’t know if we can do that.
I’m off to Taiwan on Monday for the week, for the Taipei show, and will be meeting the factory and our gang there. So we’ll see.
I guess that now means mid-May. Ugh. Taken AGES this one. Thank goodness I now have two Solidworks lads on the case in
RotherhamSheffield to speed things up. If I can get over my obsession with chainstay bend and get things moving faster.
So – MID MAY.
Preorder from when they are 30 days out, I guess.Posted 4 years agojuliofloMember
Brant – thanks for the snippet of info regarding Parkwood. If it is Fireline styley regarding geo and riding approach, but alu and price of the old Scandal….then probably on for one of those this summer then. My only complaint with my Scandal has been length of it’s back end.Posted 4 years agozx1200rMember
Just sorted the finance so hopefully they’ll be letting you know my blue build pre-order is a go. I assume the deal you got from sram means Hope brakes are not an option otherwise love the build and I have to say I have no experience with Avids, I just like those Hope tech3 E4 beauties. I’ve tried 2-29ers, the Tallboy and gyro, both were more agile than I expected but pedal bashing on the Tallboy was a pain does the Codeine ride a touch higher?Posted 4 years ago
