Finished but no photos yet.
Took it out for my maiden ride today....4 hours of nothing serious, just wanted to get acquainted
Immediate impression was how hard it felt against the Hei Hei....or more like....wow, what a soft ride you get with some Ti. Hadn't really noticed before.
A few more miles it and it's really starting to impress. Acceleration is much faster than I thought it would be given the slightly longer wheelbase. It's very much 'sit in' the bike with the lower BB (a bit like the Guyzer), felt a wee strange at first...then super comfortable. The slightly lower CofG seems to make it flickable yet poised...if that makes sense.
The forks are superb. When I had just built it and played around with the front brakes I noticed the forks were pretty flexy.....but on the (not too hard) trails this just took the edge of the bumps etc yet remained precise.
Just have to change the stem as it was a little too high and long.
Think I'm gonna like this.....a lot.
PS Yeh yeh...I know you lot are taking bets as to how long I will keep it
For ever changing my mind and my cars
