That turned out as well as expected. Maguras are such a good choice.

Well magas has it spot on.

Should be quite a different ride to the kili. Bet your itching to take it out for a few long rides.

I can't wait :D

Yes the kili is a very aggressive quick ride and comfort is not it's forte :lol:

The m2 will add a little bounce to my life and feels very comfy 8)

Weight with a chain now fitted is 21lb baring in mind the tyres weigh a heavy 750g each :shock:

That is a very impressive weight. I see what you mean on the kili, mine has aluminium p bone forks and is quite a harsh rigid, thinking the e stay will be a bit leaner.

Bit of bounce is good for comfort. This stumpy just screams fast to me. I love it.
