Yelli Screamy geometry in proper steel and with an EBB … what’s not to like? (CEN exempt too, perhaps, so are they allowed to make a steel bike feel like steel?)
I’ll take the grey.
It’s nothing like the Ritchey …. which is also nice, but very different.
Taz, price aside, why do you prefer the Buzzard?Posted 4 years ago
ridden niners and ridden singulars….both are ace, but i like the feel of Sams stuff that little bit more, just seems to work better for me. I certainly wouldn’t be upset to have a niner, but for the cost give me a singular and I’ll use the extra few hundred quid I’ve saved to get my pimp onPosted 4 years ago

Oh, Ti Buzzard sounds interesting!
EBB? There’s other ways of setting a frame up SS without the huge cost.
There are. And in my experience they either look shit or actually are shit. An EBB is the only method I’ve tried which both looks ok and stops the wheel sliding forward under pressure.Posted 4 years ago
I have and have had quite a few different sliders and EBB’s and the sliders on the QH are by far the most secure method i’ve seen.Posted 4 years ago
Every EBB i’ve had has creaked at some point. Though Jones has a good setup with the inside of the EBB shell machined out so the EBB unit only contacts the ends of the shell and doesn’t “rock” as much.
These sliders have been solid so far.
Yeah, not really a fan of the look of that style of dropout, I looked quite closely at the QH’s a while ago but they were what put me off. Same goes for the Honzo dropouts.
I also looked at the Buzzard but the geometry seems odd and without a test-ride I wouldn’t like to risk it.
I did fancy a HX2 but couldn’t get hold of one at the time due to progressive/chumba supply problems.Posted 4 years ago
