"How does and Endorphin ride?" - It has a very firm BB area- point and shoot front end- skims/skitters across rough stuff - race bike fast- BUT For such a fast frame you should feel alot more beat up( estay vertical compliance?)
I've ridden every frame out there- firm springy like Ti- less forgiving, but no wormy noodle top tube.
Current Endorphin Build:
Medium frame - 22" toptube
FSA Carbon cranks - new chainrings(octalink)+ chain 8spd- Carbon ATACs
NOS XT rearmech
NOS Thumbies (DNP dx copies)
New LX front mech ( hard to get a front mech that clears e-stays)
Easton carbon EC70 seatpost-' Dale Ti saddle, ringle qr clamp.
Nuke proof rear hub - new bearings + new 517 build
Rolf satelite front
Syncros cattleprod stem - icon 2014 flats
LX brakes - have got some XT Vs and avid levers( somewhere in loft?)
I don't really want to be selling off odd 'chainring bolts' - frames are harder to hide from Mrs Stuey
