Really loving the shape and all the little details, and you just can't beat the buzz of riding a frame that's been built round you :D its like putting on your fav comfy trainers.

Enjoy!!

The Charge tyres are pretty damn good in dry/damp conditions

The sidewalls are a little thin so maybe not the best tyre for rocky trails but it keeps the weight down

Anyhoo there have been a couple of changes to the bike since my last post in this thread

1) I have fitted a Gravity Dropper Classic Multi seatpost

2) I have gone tubeless with Schwalbe tyres (Black Shark Mud up front, Nobby Nic Evo out back)

The weight is now 25.5lbs

Sorry but no pics for now, you'll have to wait until after the weekend ;)
