Yep, all of the spearfish frames are with me now.Posted 5 years ago
Just large (x4) and a single XL left now
I want the orange XL for myself, so be quick. All I need is a few spare hours and it will built and in the hills.
It’s about the same weight as my El Mar steel was. Compared to the ti it has a shallower head angle so is a bit of a beast on the downhills. It has a lower BB too.
ODI and MRP are sponsors – hence the parts. That and XX1 is quite expensive…
I’m waiting for Works to have their chainrings in stock – then with the new clutch mech I have coming hopefully I won’t need the chain device – hence the temp bodge.

Now updated with lighter Rebas, a proper MRP seat tube chain device and XTR clutch mech… The difference compared to my ti hardtails now I’ve ridden it a few times is immense. I’ve never been keen on full sus bikes, partly a weight thing, partly as I think it’s cheating and makes you ride lazily and partly as they need more looking after. This has convinced me, though! Just enough suspension to let you really attack the trails without quite so much out-of-controlness as a hardtail.

Weight as in the pic above is 25.2lbs on the digital hanging scales, so a bit more than I thought but not surprising with the build – wheels/grips/cranks/pedals/tyres not the lightest but they just work. It was a perfect bike for the Gorrick 100 last weekend – there seemed to be a lot of hardtail suffering going on…Posted 4 years ago
