    In anticipation of ordering my new Bandit, whet my appetite with some nice pics of your Bandits. Thanks

    barbs – is that the e13 trs+ wheelset? How do you like it?

    Yes they are the trs+ and very good too so far. Really stiff and set up tubeless very easily. The only thing I would say is that they are LOUD, a lot louder than my Hope pro 2. Not cheap though although I managed to snap them up when CRc had them 30% off for a few days!

    Can someone with a large frame let me know what length fork steerer they used please.

    Some pics of mine on the other recent Bandit thread: linky

    Here’s a newer one:

    EDIT: Barbs – those are some lovely wheels. Would love a pair, but even at 30% off they’re still a bit steep for me!

    Anyone got one in the 2013 colours? Can’t decide on grey or orange

    barbs – my LBS can get me a set of 29ers for £750, still a lot of money. Waiting to see if my repaired Superstar Teslas hold up but if not these are sorely tempting me. Main thing that makes me wonder is the volume, I’ve been on Pro 2s for years now and find them a bit noisy, I’m told you wouldn’t even hear a bike with a Pro 2 riding next to you with the e13s? Do you think it’s going to get on your tits in the long run? Lovely looking bike BTW

    Davo – good question! The novelty has certainly worn off but I am hoping that the performance of them will outweigh the downsides, and there won’t be many dog walkers getting in the way!

    Hmmm. Yeah got moaned at by a horse rider who didn’t hear me coming the other day, guess I’m used to Pro 2s doing the warnings for me. So do your riding mates think the e13s sound awesome or a distracting racket?
