Its amazing the feel of the big wheels and suspension albeit only 80mm. Looking forward to upping it to 115mm



I wouldn't bother myself! I like the comfort the big wheels give without the mush of long travel suspension.... I reckon 80mm is perfect, good enough for Afan anyway....thinking of reducing mine to 0mm :twisted:

C'mon Mark, you don't actually use your brakes in anger at Thetford, they're just for control......I was amazed how I could carry on regardless-ish for most of a lap with no rear brake after it digested itself....I reckon V-brakes would be fine!

edit: Afan or somesuch with proper big hills would obviously be a whole different ballgame.....I'm just saying for Flatland use, no worries.
