Hey welcome, That's a beauty, simplicity!
Looks quite small is that a 16"?
Nice colour too, potentially a blank canvas, nice find.
How does it compare to an STP, I very nearly bought an STP a few times, even test rode a cheap one at the shop.
Thanks, yes it's a 16", compact but I'm 5'10 with short legs so reckon it will work for me. It's very nice in the flesh, the satin finish really suits it.
I'm yet to ride it (haven't even fitted pedals yet) so can't compare it to anything so far...
...but my STP was great fun, a relatively slack (for a jump bike) head angle and short stays made it great at tearing through singletrack or stopping off to bugger about on drop offs or the pump track. I'm also told by people much better than me that it was very good over dirt jumps.
Where it fell short was that it was just a touch too small (no pun intended) even with a 400mm post and those short box section rear stays were Monday-morning harsh over any real distance. But those were only minor points and I regretted selling it almost immediately.
If the Trailstar rides with the same hooligan character, but steel comfort and a little more room from the extra inch, I'll be most pleased.
