Show us your Superlights! And what fork 100 or 120mm?
Mine is an XL, I’m 6’2″. Normally top tube is more important for me, but being a bit leggy I need a seat tube minimum of 20″ C-T and the large was only 19″ at the time. The XL is just right for me, which was a bit of a surprise.
Swapped forks to 120mm ones for a while. Have today just swapped back to 100mm rebas and will stick with them from now on. I think the bike suits them so much more for heads down blasts on Singletrack. I may be jey as well but I’m sure i can tell the difference the lighter fork makes!Posted 9 years ago
I run the TALAS at 120mm, I had F32 100RLC but the nose was too low, felt like I was going to go over the bars. the Rebas are a no brainer, take the spacer out and they will go to 115mm, perfect at no cost.
I run my 100 Reba SL’s at 115mm on my Scandal, the Superlight climbs better though 🙂Posted 9 years agoV8_shin_printMember
There will be one more in a week or two, I have just bought a frame second hand. It’s grey in large and will be running a 100mm Tora initially, this might change in the future if i have spare cash.
Can someone here have a read of my post about the bushes on a Superlight? How do you know when they should be replaced? Title: Pivot Bushes/Bearings on a SuperlightPosted 9 years agoxcstuMember
another superlight in the alps.. clean and muddy 😉Posted 8 years agoslowriderMember
my old man runs a 120mm qr15 float on his and has a fairly light build but nothing ridiculous; still uses 2.35 tyres, no carbon bits, hope brakes and his is 26.5lbs. its a great xc trail bike, really flatters his strengths-smooth, flowy, pedal all day type stuff.
my brother has an older one (my dads old one) and absolutely canes it. not sure how long it will last, he has taken it to the alps, snowdon etc and definitely pushes it to its limits; dented frame, stretched bb threads, new pivot bearings regulary etc. but he cant afford to replace it and with a short stem, too long fork and wide bars he has changd it in to a bit of a play bike anyway.
basically its a very versatile bike!Posted 8 years ago
