My first 29er
Say hello to my new ride, Scandal V2. First full build on my own and was remarkably simple. Really love it on the tight fast flowing singletrack, tis grin inducing. Still getting used to the dropped post, keep forgetting I’ve got it!Posted 4 years ago
Only thing left is pop a brown saddle on (should arrive today) and align the front tyre (put it on the wrong way around and didn’t pay attention second time around as I was angry with myself).
Tis a very unruly bush (and on the long list of garden choirs) and the dog got a good dip in the canal on the way home.Posted 4 years ago
A lot of firsts on the bike (first 1×10 set up, always 3×9) so I’m just trying to work out what’s making the difference. My old stead was a on-one 456 with 150 revs up front.
Really easy on the long climbs, I mean really easy. Don’t really notice the little bumps on the fast single track in the rear as much as I did on the 456. I think I look 17% more awesome but I could be off a few points. Thought I’d miss all my travel but I’ve not noticed it once.

Big wheels roll better and get less obstructed by trailcrap, that’s it really, just like all the “industry marketing conspiracy foisted on us to sell more bikes” says.Posted 4 years ago
