Stunning colour and a great looking build for a modern (very modern :oops: ) bike.

Loving the Middleburns, they really jump out at you. 8)

The only thing I'd change is the rear mech as you really don't need such a long cage on a 1x9. But that's me being really picky.

Nice build though. I quite fancy one of these myself. I was very tempted by one of the 2009 ones in 'Expresso'.


Agree with that, need to go as short as poss and they look way better than long cage ones too :D

Cheers for the comments folks :D

Been out quite a bit recently and absolutely love the ride of the frame - much smoother in the rough than any other HT I have owned.

Got a bit of experimenting to do as I have a 130mm fork, 90mm stem & a layback post to try.

Re the rear mech.....I know aesthetically its not good but I haven't found it to be a problem function wise.

Maybe an anodized XO medium cage when money allow :oops:
