Borrowed Sam’s bike this weekend due to a roof bar malfunction (cheers) really liked it rode very nicely and was quite flick able and did want to jump as well, the amount of grip it generated if counter balanced when cornering even with the low profile xc tyres in sodden conditions was impressive. Not anymore inputs needed that my dialled Albert to get it moving around, and rolled and tracked very well over rocky fast trailsPosted 5 years agostMember
Took mine out for it’s first ride yesterday
Stem was too long so fitted a 45mm.
Elixers swapped for SLX and my old Reverb has gone on
Bars have been raised ready for the next ride. Rim strips on order together with some Rubber Queens.
Forks as expected are simple but ok, looking into a mod to fit the Motion Control damper from an Argyle.
Overall I was pleased with it during yesterday’s brief ride. It’s my first time on a 29er and it’s replaced an SC Heckler so about as far apart as I could go.Posted 5 years ago
It looks a bit like the old Turner Flux i had that was anodized orange,seems to have the same sort of look,it looks strange as on the sharper edges its not as orange.
looks like the Orange colour is applied directly to the steel and then a clearcoat applied over that..Posted 5 years ago
