Thats the thing, they are all different...

Guess that's why I keep them all they all have there own little niches

Was out all Saturday on the Fat Ti and that rides completely differently, guess it should though they are two very different bikes

The Dekerf like woodsy hidden trails and being thrown around, the Fat Ti likes fast flowy stuff and just wants to go faster

How's the Moots going?

Major topic kick...

I just finished updating my Implant Ti. Wheels have ceramic bearings, the crankset is a Cannondale Hollowgram SL with ceramic bearings as well. Drivetrain is Sram XX with Gore Ride On superlight sealed cables and Magura MT8 brakes.

It is a lightning fast bike

Will be doing the Coast2Coast on this bike :D

Damn, I really want to do the C2C but preferably not on my own & I can't make next because I'm recovering from an operation. :cry:

Hope you have great time :D
