New Bike Build Blog
TBH not ridden it enough so far. The recommend weight:psi is a little high so just set it to 25% sag. Reviews suggest the slider SL2 take a little time to bed the seals (like I used to have to do with Fox forks) so early days yet but I have yet to drop the saddle for a slow droppy descent yet – Day off tomoz so will go for a decent ride 🙂 Prob get myself a dropper soon as well to make the most of the potential 🙂Posted 4 years agorewskiMember
Great blog, seriously good photos. I went for a different build, pretty much the same spec as the pivot 429 XT/XTR, with Fox forks, heard very good things about the Xfusions though. A dropper post is a great addition, did you go for direct mount rear mech? Makes shifting ultra snappy.
A few more pics, not your standard though foxy. Have fun on your day off.

Finished my SYNC build and decided to do a build blog:
At least I can see what it looked like when new after it gets dirty and scratched LOLPosted 4 years ago
Nice build rewski (Is that the downs in the background? – Yeah I went for the std build so SRAM X9 so no direct mount available that I know of but I may change groupset in time when bits wear out 😉 although SRAM may go DM?
She’s a beaut for sure – fell in love after seeing the proto 🙂 hopefully the weather will hold tomoz 🙂Posted 4 years ago
I used to live near Lewes as a kid 🙂
No I got the Bronsons – very easy to mount tubless tbh – seem pretty good alrounder atm – used to a Kenda Nevegal Tubless Fr and Crossmark rear combon on my 26er HT and the Bronsons seem OK ATMN but not pushed them yet 🙂 I guess the Slant’s are a little lower profile?Posted 4 years ago
