Pics of your bike. Just because.
The Cham is just the bike I’ve been wanting for ages TBH. I genuinely don’t think I’m massively slower on it on the downs than the Helius. It’s stiff, but talk of “Like being fisted by Joe Calzhage, and Joe’s still got his glove on” is way off the mark, did 5 hours in Wales couple of weeks back It it was cool.
Thors…Dunno really, seem bomb proof, like the stiffness, but set-up time has been endless, after 5 months just about got there with pretty much constant “3 psi in, 1 out” kind of gig. Don’t trust them if I’m honest after the lowers cracked.Posted 9 years agosimonralli2Member
Why thank you. The Rebas have made a huge difference, as have the Juicy 5s which came very handy in yesterday on a very rocky technical descent that previously I walked down.
Am running some reinforced 2.4″s for the Spanish rocky and thorny terrain, and the wheeels were basically the only ones available in the LBS.Posted 9 years agoAndySubscriber
Stoner; Only 6’2″ but long legged. Yup agreed about the Sultan, you must be reading my mind! Really want to try one, but at £1450 which is what i think the motolite will end up costing I hope (£1300 for the bike new, plus a bit of bits swap). this was a good solution for my needs. Its only really a bike for the mountains and alps. Cant see myself blatting round Swinley on it 😆
Thanks MrFC – am very pleased with it, worth trying. Quite a capable bike (more capable than me) and the build comes up at 28lbs so quite light as well.Posted 9 years ago
as mangoman says, SS climbing done out of the saddle (unless you’re that freak SSStu). ANd 29er front wheels dont wander about anything like as much as a 26er.
Seat that far back as I am 6’4″ though and it’s a 19.5″ frame (used to have 21″ scadal but the smaller frame is definately the right way to go). Forks at 120mm to start which may be a bit too much for the frame. Will start putting in more sag first and if that isnt helping then Ill change the travel to 100mm.
thflatboy – nice build. Pity about the decals 🙂Posted 9 years ago
