So... Yesterday! 5hrs of playing in the woods and well... AWESOME! Really very impressed how much speed it carries. I did have a moment when there was a nasty crack noise! Ahhhh! i'd not tighten up the bolts on the USE carbon post and the seat slipped resulting in me check every weld :oops: . The White Bros forks are super plush. I did have them a wee bit to firm to begin with but they never missed a beat all day!
Twangy was out with me and played almost all day without a front break! Some brave downhill'in! All in a top day and very pleased with my ti toy!

I just love mine ever more, the more I ride it, sooooo much better than a Merlin or Litespeed to ride, it corners like it's on rails, no frame flex, but just enough give to take the edge off big knocks, You need to spend more-much more they are worth it, Ti seatpost and stem next!

Agreed! They are a stunning ride. I went for a slightly smaller frame
than I'd normally ride (norm 18' and this is 17.5) and I've pointed it at all sorts of stuff and it just has it! I don't think there's much I want to change if I'm honest... I'm keeping a look out for some Middleburn crank arms and I may change the cassette for a 10spd??? But it just does everything I want. Dare I say it... Better than my old Pace? Def knocks the spots of the stumpies I've had. I will get round to some tasty pics at some point. Oh the forks are fffffffkin brill! Currently very happy :D
