These don't come up for sale very often, especially in my size, so I thought I'd better give it a go. We're all eating dog food for the next few months, but I'm sure the missus will understand... :wink:

Thanks for the heads up ,Haggis! :D

Sods Law !
I bought the Dekerf and this turned up on STW a couple of days later. It's more useful in our mucky winters, having disc tabs, and I need to see what the fuss is all about with IF.
The Vicious is on it's way to where they say "Smikko" a lot. A ride in the pouring rain persuaded me I needed something with more durable components for the winter. Having removed 85gm of Heli tape from the deluxe, it's still 2.1 kg excluding the EBB, so the frame should be pretty solid too.

Yup, I got the fork too. It's a pretty lairy yellow, but appears to be working well, and can have the travel increased up to 130mm from 100, so I might try that. :wink: THe yellow does clash pretty badly with the mango hubs, and if I use the red Ritchey pedals... :shock:
