New bike – Solo
New bike for me. Out with the HD and in with the solo. Suits me much better. Not saying the HD was crap, I just didn’t get on with it.
Summary of the spec is: SoloC, Pike solo air, Tune/BOR King Kong hubs on dt480 rims, xtr mech, e13 crank, bor bb, saint chain guide, renthal bar and stem. Rest you can work out.
So far been to Bourg and local trails (dartmoor / haldon / tavi / cardinham) and it has been spot on. It felt a little out its depth on the marked open piste type DH trails in Les Arc but then that’s not its intended purpose. Dosn’t mind being in the air tho.
Great bike. Think I will be keeping this one for a while.Posted 4 years ago
just to let everybody in on the secret burchy is on about – 26″ rims still have a purpose: trashed the rear wheel 2nd day in to a long weekender in bourg and stuck a 26″ in the back.
slackened it out, lowered the bb a touch and i loved it. It was fantastic, no need for a slack set or offset bushes, just dump a 26″er in the back.!.
For those who have one on order, well worth the wait.
creepers – i wanted the orange but would have had to have waited a long time so black was in.Posted 4 years ago
