Posted 4 years ago GSuperstarMember No idea on weight I’m afraid 🙁 for its build it feels fairly light. Erm, moved the parts across from the Intense, but it’s insured for just over 5. Cant put a price on happiness they said 😉 Posted 4 years ago GSuperstarMember Finished building my new frame up Monday evening… I’m blown away by it. Feels so much more aggressive than the Intense Tracer2 it’s replaced. 🙂 Posted 4 years ago 6079smithwMember Nice filing system 😛 Posted 4 years ago _tom_Member That colour is so nice. Posted 4 years ago TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber Love it – I was letching over a picture of that frame in the same colour the other day Posted 4 years ago kayak23Subscriber I like your brick-effect wallpaper, but not too sure on the grey skirting boards. Still, bike is very nice, imagine it would be fantastic when it points downwards… 🙂 Posted 4 years ago ioloMember Could you please tell me what you mean by aggressive? Posted 4 years ago rOcKeTdOgSubscriber That is a great colour Posted 4 years ago horaMember From office depot? 8) Posted 4 years ago 33tangoMember £5000 is serious cash for a bike! Enjoy 🙂 Posted 4 years ago GSuperstarMember Yes Hora… Office depot 😉 Iolo- the head angles steeper by about 2 degrees from my old frame. So obviously when the track turns downwards just makes me push even more, hence the aggressive feel 🙂 Posted 4 years ago kimbersSubscriber do u mean steeper or slacker? and does the shock mount change it what is the HA ? and I take it they are 36s Posted 4 years ago peterfileMember Single chainring? That’s quite a bold move for the Surrey Hills? 🙂 (lovely bike btw) Posted 4 years ago horaMember Mine is like a poormans imitation of yours http://www.flickr.com/photos/30625376@N06/9833340913/ Posted 4 years ago honourablegeorgeMember Very nice build indeed. Posted 4 years ago fervouredimageMember Stealthy…… Seriously, it looks great. Love a bike that shouts. Posted 4 years ago Pik n MixSubscriber First orange I have ever lusted after, I think it’s the split swing arm that makes it look right, great bike matey. Posted 4 years ago ioloMember Nice bike. Does the head angle make it a pig to climb or is it not too bad? Posted 4 years ago eddSubscriber You have a “direct mount” rear derailleur hanger so you need to remove the top “link” of the derailleur. Don’t imagine it shifts well as currently installed… Beautiful bike otherwise. Posted 4 years ago GSuperstarMember Sorry, I meant slacker. More downhill biased. Thanks for all the kind comments! Head angle makes it wander a bit up, but I kinda knew I was sacrificing that for the downhill enjoyment. Edd! Please explain! I’m struggling to get the gears setup! As in the whole bolt setup? That actually makes a lot of sense! Lol. Posted 4 years ago eddSubscriber GSuperstar – you need to remove the bit circled in red: Remove the bit circled in red by eddkh, on Flickr Posted 4 years ago wlMember At last a sensible ‘my new bike’. Very wise choice. Did you see the mag review a few months back? Posted 4 years ago StevelolMember That is seriously, seriously nice. Why did you change from the Tracer? Posted 4 years ago takisawa2Subscriber Totally not my cup of tea but that really is my cup of tea… If that makes any sense… 🙂 Lovely bike. Posted 4 years ago GSuperstarMember Ed, I’m ignoring the fact that I feel stupid as this was my first drd use, but thanks so much! I’m excited to swap it out! Steve-I’m not sure. Loved the bike but, you know when it just doesn’t feel like it’s suited to you? I never felt super confident on it. Thanks Taki!
