Despite staying away from full sus for years and years, a mate of mine has started a bike shop and offered me a new bike at the wrong time - about 5 minutes after I received a bonus from my new employer...

Took all of 30 seconds and before I knew it I'd said yes to a new bike..

It's just arrived at his store and about to be built, which is infuriating as I'm in France now until the 11th for my wedding!

Only pic I have at the moment is in its box, will update this post as/when I get more pics and as it evolves...

Oh the shame! I agree with slope, you need to sort your priorities and come home and build it.

Put the Fighters on last night but for some reason they just don't suit the bike as well as the Fusions do.. Shame but oh well..

2 sets of RC40's coming up for sale it is then!

Going to complete the merge of the 456c and this over the weekend - more pics and updated spec to follow 8)

Oh yeah, full-suss rocks!!! :twisted:
