It was pretty good to tell u the truth. Its a heavier build than rest of the girls but despite the disk drive and the pro-flops fork and non functioning Pauls componentry it rode at Cannock quite well. It needs everything tightening up again and re-adjusting since its first bedding in ride tho.

I would like to ride it rigid (hence the other build) to see what it really feels like on singletrack etc. I will aslo stick on it normal shimano stuff so it hoepfully will work better.

It accelerates pretty quick for starters (guess cos of stiffness of carbon) and cos of its sheer size you feel like you can wallow it around a bit (compared with say a skinny steel frame etc)

OK, you're not the only one who can expertly craft images together in a fantastic artistic collage, and not wishing to stretch my analogy too far but here's how I see it. See what I mean now? :lol:

So therefore it should be a Pod of Trimbles.

Thank you.
