Looks a nice bike but ...Sorry, taking 1.5 years to gather a load of modern currently available or only just out of production parts smacks of laziness rather than a huge amount of effort. :lol:

A nice modern bike but no extra points awarded in my mind for completing a difficult or challenging build.

Maybe I'm missing the point, I have been at the ale and it has a habit of making me miss points.

Maybe financial constraints...

Love the build and I've always thought the Maguras are some of the nicest looking forks on the market.

Fantastic bike, handle really well, and slightly trail/AM bike and design, will handle anything you throw at it, what the hell is that wierd looking stem you have on it?

yes, that was the main reason. apart from that it took a while to decide on how to build it up and i didn't want to settle with cheap stuff.
the current setup leans pretty much to the freeride side with the 160mm forks and heavy 2,4" tubeless tires. in theory it should be a beast on the descent.

yes, that's what i expect it to be. having ridden it twice i haven't adopted to the full suspension thing yet. the flat pedals are an even bigger challenge for me. i guess it takes time...
