My New 5 Spot – Warning, kid size bike
it rides great.Posted 8 years ago
So far I've only managed an off road commute as a bit of a shake down.
I'll drop through the woods on the way home and open it up a bit.
So far the DW is far better when pedaling, the squat that was noticeable on the HL has gone and it doesn't bob either. Silky smooth suspension action.
I'll post again when I give some rough stuff
It is a shame about the bent top tube but I needed a size small, so I have to live with it.Posted 8 years ago
The cable routing is the only other bit of a problem. Took a bit of time to sort properly. I've zip tied the big bend in the front mech cable near the rocker links just under the seat clamp to keep it from rubbing on the rocker.
Also zip tied the rear brake hose to the lower DW link. Keeps it away from the shock. I hate to say it but the cable runs would probably have been better under the downtube a bit like spesh do.IdleJonSubscriber

seeing as you have a tiny bike, how light are you to run 717s? I am thinking of running my 717s on my new build and weigh in at just under 10st
I've used 717s since I was an 11st racer – I'm now over 13st and still running them. In fact I ordered a pair for my new bike today.
Max tyre width is supposedly 2.2", although the 2.25" Cinders on my 'Dale Rush fit well and haven't rolled off or anything silly.
Very good rims but of course it's the actual wheel build that determines how strong the wheel is.Posted 8 years ago
