Thanks.

The Giant now has XTR Race brakes on and they are bloody amazing.

The Santa Cruz has been sat since the start of May awaiting the brakes been sorted so the Giant is the bike of the moment. I love the way the giant rides, although the santa cruz feels a lot burlier and i dont worry about throwing that at things.

Nice rides, I could see a Blur LT in my future,

Interesting comment about the carbon bike being more burly and throwing it at things, your spec is pretty lightweight XC as it is. A refreshing noise in among the carbon scepsis on many forums.

Enjoy!!
