My new Enduro race bike
Thanks to my Sponsors; team and my own, this is ready in time for Round 2 of the UKGE at Innerleithen this weekend. 😀
I’ve had custom geometry on this- a 65.5 degree head angle, XL seat tube length and the perfect top tube length for me. Anybody can get this on an MDE frame if you ask the UK distributor, http://www.sps-distribution.co.uk
Yes, the grass is a mess. The valves and tyre logos have been lined up but I didn’t set my cranks level. I know, I’m beating myself already. 😆Posted 4 years ago

Go on then, what’s the cost of a custom geo frame?
A standard frame is £1690. A head angle tweak is about £100 extra and then more tweaks might add about £300 to the overall price, but don’t quote me on this. Steve Parr from SPS Distribution (website is ^^^) is the man you need to speak to.Posted 4 years ago

What front guard is that?
That’s a Rockguardz Carbon Mudguard, in the medium length.Posted 4 years ago

Good to see that other folk are buying the right-sized frames for themselves too.
Long-legs = (x)large frames
Saddle angle will fail once the UCI get involvedHave you got abnormally long legs too then? It’s a bit funny that other people still I think I’ve got the wrong sized frame just because of the saddle height. That’s an XL seat tube length; they even had to put an extra brace in at the top tube/seat tube join because of the length of it! But then I’ve got a top tube that’s 10mm shorter than the standard XL so that the reach will be right for me with a 50mm stem. It is pretty cool to have your geometry, and pretty important if you’re proportioned strangely, like me.
I need to run that saddle angle or something close to it because of the saddle-bar drop. It looks stupid, though.
I warbled on a bit, didn’t I? 😆Posted 4 years ago

Just sayin’[/quote]The wave ski is good fun, but I must admit that I prefer surfing. Horses for courses.
I’ve now raced the UK Gravity Enduro at Innerleithen (the perfect test spot for it) and it’s great. The head angle and general wheel base length took a bit of getting used to through tight corners but feels great now I’m riding over the front end a bit more. It comes into to its own as soon as the trails trail get steep, fast, technical or all 3. Love it.Posted 4 years ago
