At least you know they are safe.

My mate has some 888's on his norco which are bouncy as hell but very nice none the less.

Yeah, they feel a little bouncy/undamped, not sure if the compression damping is working properly? Ah well, I'll see how I get on with them, and maybe crack them open if I have to.

Nice. Looks pretty slack. Can't help thinking a set of retro SID's would match that frame colour nicely and sharten it up a bit :wink:

No, it means the T is too close to the P on my keyboard

So I took it to Foel Gasnach yesterday for it's maiden voyage. The front end is pretty short, which felt weird, and the shock/gears need some work, but apart from that, it felt really good. after a few runs, I could feel myself getting faster as it seemed to give me a lot more confidence to get off the brakes, and from the go pro footage compared to my previous trips there, I was riding faster than before, which was good!

Anyway, after a clean today, I took some slightly better photos outside.

Looks better out of your room! Haha.

Why do you feel the front end is short? Do you mean a-c or cockpit?

If head angle, you can put the shock up a mount and raise the crown or are you thinking different fork?
