New, very excited, Christmas pressie to myself!

Coming this friday! First thing I thought to do was put a (placeholder) thread up on here!

Can you tell I am excited?!

Gonna sell off a few parts and get some lighter bits to make it a sub 20Ib, Race Ready rocket! Even entered some MTB races today, did I say I was excited?

Now arrived!!

Loving it, its just got discs and everything! all comes in at under 22Ib stock.

Not sure on the white grips, but the seat is growing on me

Bars are wiiide! Already planning on how to get it under 20Ib, should be easy as loads of things are heavy as (seatpost c. 300g's etc)

Can't wait to race this thing next year

Really lovely, i would love one of these 8) I'm glad a lot of these modern XC bikes are sticking with flat bars, they look so much nicer, id give up my Pace for one of these in a second 8)
