Finally got the time to ride her this weekend. I can only say: Fast! Gives a lot of confidence although I touched the limits with the low profile tires sometimes. Set my PB in a second round on the local trail! The Marzocchi fork is so pluch, it really feels a bit like the old days of Marzocchi.

I can understand the colours are not everyone's cup of tea, but at least it is original (and has something retro about). Spec list is pretty original too for a complete bike.

And only 21lbs. Look beyond the fancy paint etc and it's a good bike as well.
