- New bike – Blur LT, Bandit, Mega TR … Strive?
Stumpy Evo? I’ve the 2011 expert version and it’s fantastic. I had looked at the others in this category (loads of very good bikes) and the evo was top of the list for the types of riding i do (a bit of everything). It replaced my minidh bike as my only FS and it copes with dh trails pretty well. It jumps well now i’ve adapted to an air shock 😆 and is fantastic on rough stuff, through corners and flies uphill. It’s a really fun bike to ride. I’ve no idea how you ride, but my riding would need to improve dramatically for it to be not enough bike.Posted 4 years ago
Wowsers! It looks amazing in the flesh, so glad I went for the Lemon Lime, there’s a lovely green tint which doesn’t really show in pictures.
Just need to get a few more bits and build it up. My first attempt at a self build so will take my time … it can’t be too hard though, right?Posted 4 years ago
Bit of an update … finally got the Bandit built up, it’s 90% there but a few bits and pieces to tidy up and finish off.
It’s only been around my garden so far but it feels great, full showdown at the weekend to see what it’s really like. Definitely needed the large, the top tube is small and my 50mm stem feels a touch cramped at the minute compared with my Stumpy.
Thanks to all those who recommended one 🙂

That looks lovely. Bet you can’t wait to get out in it.
I demo’d a Covert which I liked apart from the way that the the ali one looked in large. Yours hides its size better due to the shock being mounted higher up in the frame. The Covert was really playful though, more so than the Rune that I bought.Posted 4 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
Top tip. Check the clearance between the front mech and the chainstay before riding “properly”. Looking at the way yours is set up, I’m pretty sure the mech will hit the chainstay at full compression. Mine did. I’ve had to mount the mech quite high. It looks a bit odd but shifts fine.
Looks ace. Here’s mine
