    Looking forward to reading some reviews – I guess all will be positive to start with rather than “bllx, I just bought a lemon”, but a few months in should be really interesting. Looks great on paper and I am tempted if I could overcome all the OO hate in here!?!? Still puts me off.

    I see the whippet has returned. Shame about the little wheels, otherwise I would be tempted by that too!

    Hope it’s a good ride for all the new adopters!

    All built up and ready for grizedale enduro this weekend. Was a bitch to helitape and decided on a fairly unsatisfactory job just so I could get it rideable. Will redo at some point. The paint finish is great, lovely pearl white. I had a whyte t129s and the codeine is MUCH stiffer, weighs about the same and loads of rear tyre clearance too. Completely different animal to the whyte so will take a little to adjust but boy is it plush. Feels really solid.

    With the shock came a set up sheet for the Titus El guapo 29er, is this applicable to the codeine Brant? If not can you get a rough guide for me? I’m away till Sunday so don’t really have time to have a good set up session as the shock instructions recommend.

    The CCDBs were originally bought for the El Guapo 29s but the rate change is pretty similar though it’s a bit of a flatter rate curve.
    I will try to get some team settings for different weight/height riders.

    Glad we are making you smile in stiffness and clearance areas so far. Both a key thing for us.

    Just to expand… CCDBs aren’t tuned for a frame as they have huge internal high and low speed compression adjustment and only dial settings are tweaked, not internal valving.

    Thanks for that Brant. I understand the basics of the ccdb, just about to get a cheeky ride in this am to have a test.

    Must say though that the frame looks even better in the metal than in the pictures.

    Brant,

    Cheers,

    I have nowhere to ride that would even begin to warrant such a bike but I find myself really wanting one …. in blue. 8)

    how tall are you?

    Whats the weight of it Rorschach?

    Rorschach
    Member

    I’m 6’2″.I’d like it a wee bit longer,less for my reach.More so I could use a 35mm stem and get a longer front centre.
    It weighs the same as a small moon (actually,that’s no moon).I’m surprised the photo came out as it creates it’s own singularity and light can’t escape*.
    ( *I’ve been told it’s not that heavy but seeing as my next heaviest bike weighs 23lbs I’m of the opinion it dents concrete……not that it matters).

    Have you drilled for a stealth Rorschach? Or am I seeing something else.

    I thought I’d maybe made a bad choice in opting for black fork(blue frame) instead of white.. Phew I made the right choice πŸ˜€

    @Rorschach
    Looks good, hope it rides even better. Looking at the seat position you must have looong legs.

    Since my local workshops are busy until more or less end of summer I will be fitting headsets (On-One) on my own, with my self-made tools (press). For those who did it – are there any hints for that process in Codeine? Is it piece of codeine or is there anything I should be more careful?

    I bought the ebay headset press(length of threaded rod/big metal washers/large nylon washers) Β£5 ..

    Pressed few sets of headset cups in no issues πŸ™‚

    My legs go all the way to the ground.98cm pedal axle to top of seat,about 60mm bar drop ( flat bar,slammed). I already had a reverb stealth so drilled it as it came out the box. The seat tube is about 2ft thick,what’s the worst that could happen?
    Headset went in fine.Driveside bob threads were bobbins so had to retap them when facing the shell. Alignment was ok,about 2mm out at the linkage on full compression and a couple of mm out at the chain stays.Full compliment bearing ( which is nice).devoid of grease (which was not). Knocked them all out and refitted full o’grease.
    If it was Β£2k I might actually be bothered. But it was’nt and I’m not.
