just had my first proper ride of this bike........bit shocking seeing as i have owned it for almost 3 months
after riding a cannondale bad boy for 3 months, this felt more racy but much slower.....with the chunky rubber, handling was scary for a few miles.....im used to slicks thesedays!
a very nice ride non the less, still unsure of the headshock set up, this being the second dale i have owned to have one fitted......it works though, and as im not a fan of suspension, it does me for what i need. a few rough sections off piste proved its worth when the speed picked up.
only other grumble is the ceramic brakes, had a few bikes with these rims fitted and i dont like the way they sound or feel, though, new pads will maybe cheer me up.
all in all, very happy with the 16miles today, will get out on it a few times this week, as im getting used to it before the yorkshire dales ride at the weekend. pics and report from that to come.
i know this is also in the classifieds, but im really not fussed if it sells or not, hence not pushing a sale. quite like this bike, so time will tell. but looks wise, its awesome.....been after one for years on looks alone.
