It would suit me just fine with the stem you have on it - what is it, 70mm?

Nice bike and some good terrain too 8)

In the Peaks, the third one is at the top of Jacobs ladder.. I almost sh*t myself riding down it.. I was wishing I'd taken the Five out with me... God knows how it would have been riding retro... might try it one day though.. :shock: :twisted:

It is 70mm but it is just a touch too short. I'm going to go to 90mm. I'm also going to re-adjust the forks to 120mm travel and stick some 2.3's on it. It was just a touch too sketchy on Saturday for my liking!

I rode Jacobs ladder in around 1995 on a Zaskar with 50mm Use forks.

Man, my arms were stinging by the end of that day. :shock: :D

First time for me was 1993 on a rigid Orange Prestige. 8)

Photo No. 2 looks to be at the top of the Sunken Track, just up from where the trail meets with the road.
