- Should I sell My Inbred 456???
I’ve had both too and preferred the 456 (and regular inbred for that matter) – I’m one of the few who could never quite find a ‘just right’ set up on the Soul. I expect that’s even less help 🙂
Oh! And I’ve now got a Prince Albert and I’m not sure if I could pick between it and the 456 as my favourite hardtail. The PA certainly should be one to add to the indecision mix.Posted 9 years agoScienceofficerMember
I have a 456. When I’m not riding it, I think I need something lighter and more trail oriented, with shorter forks to give a bigger difference from my trail bike (5spot)
When I’m riding it however, its really rather cracking and I wonder why on earth I think I need to change it.
Sorry. That probably doesn’t help either.Posted 9 years agobillyboySubscriber
Keep the 456.
The only downers I can see with 456’s is the lack of middle ground. You either have to pay over £1000 for a light weight frame or you have to go for the bog standard but heavy DN6 version. An 853 (or similar) version at a mid price would be nice. AND I’d like to see a 17″ frame option.
And yes, the fork choice makes a huge difference to the ride. I’ve just put RC41s on my Ti 456 and it has turned it from a somewhat jittery descender (with Air Pike U turns, Air Revs and a Fox Talas Q/R) into something that descends like it’s on rails.Posted 9 years ago
