huge thanks to sithlord (Si) tonight for helping set the bike up.

we found the rear hanger to be out slightly, must of took a knock in transit, so the gears are not 100% but the bike is still awesome fun.

-8 and 8'' of snow meant it had a play in the snow straight away!

cant wait to have some quality time on it, and get it set up for the weather.

really like this bike, the way it rides is superb. doesnt feel like a 36lb bike at all....it floats over everything. the steering and power delivery is very smooth.

the way it soaks up the shock of hard ice is like having full suspension.

I think they are at 20psi at the moment, been fine so far, the deeper the snow the less pressure though.

I only asked as I know some people who are running them as low as 6-8 psi.
