Its nice and supple at the back, need to fettle the forks a little more though. Haven't ridden the Mythos for sometime in mud and they're fairly useless :lol:

Raven looks great. In 2 minds about getting rid of mine which is the same frame as yours but with Super Fatty forks. Rides really well, but concerned about that rear shock. Just cannot get a replacement unless you go to Risse in the USA.

Only Mojo can service and even they say parts are hard to get. Do you have same concerns? :?

The rear shock does leak a little, but its ridable. I haven't looked into it to be honest, though i did strip the shock when i got it so probably needs new seals and service.

Awesome bike, the colour really shows off what a stunning frame it is.

While those Risse shocks are initially a bit pricey, they've got a good rep and are cheap to service. I've got a Genesis on by PF 757 but having not ridden it yet I can't give you any feedback!

Where can you service Riise shocks. I tried MOJO and TFTunes and both said no

CVI in England used to service Risse, but closed. Now you have to send to Oregon, USA.

Otherwise service is not that hard. Oil changes are a snap.

Congrats on the sweet build.

The photochromatic paint job is unique. I only recall the black paint from back in the day.

I am doing a Raven built but need details of what disc brakes will fit.

Can you share what is fitted to your build Jack?
