- On-One 456 Summer v Cotic BFe
Fingers crossed for tomorrow then rossmceachran 😛 . Have headset and seat clamp – still waiting on seatpost but hey I have a shim in the tool box and cheapo BMX steel jobbie under the stairs (oh, and papadirt has a rather nice Ringle 27.2 post on his Kona which he’s forbidden me to scratch 😈 ). I shall set the alarm early . . . tooo much beer to start tonight . . . anniversary see 😀Posted 6 years agoDaveyBoyWonderMember
Come on, 24 minutes have passed! I have an original 456SS and its excellent. Going to get some bigger forks for it in the next few weeks. Been singing the praises of running 105mm on it for too long – I want some proper madness happening at the front now!
New graphics and paintjob look awesome too.Posted 6 years ago
Mmmmmmmmmm, I like 😀 . Feels pretty damn good with the forks at 120mm on the ‘down the street’ test. Just have to fettle the chain guide now then the woods are calling . . . I may be some considerable time . . .
Oh, cake was made by my son and his girlfriend for her sister’s birthday btw. I think the food colouring they used came with a warning printed on the bottle 😆 . Lovely though 😛Posted 6 years ago
Wooooo! Love it!! Very, very nice ride indeed . . . super comfy (bear in mind I’m more used to 7″, er, out back) and feels pretty much spot on at 120 on the road/climbing and 140ish offroad.
160mm really is super-slack but it passed the ‘dropping off the concrete slabs under the motor way bridge’ test with flying colours 😛
The chain guide is made from an old DMR Chain Reactor hinged clamp, spacer from the centre of a Blackspire roller, Superstar XCR spare top guide and sunken head allen bolt from mama’s bolt collection. It could do with being offset a little towards the front of the bike like the Superstar seat-tube mounted guide, but does the job just fine . . . and more importantly, quietly.Posted 6 years ago
