Provided I'm able to go I can provide you Keith with the Proflex Animal you had a wee go on at Aviemore. Lots of bounce but not well controlled as the forks non adjustable but it does have 4" of travel at either end but only V-brakes to slow it. It is a old school DH bike so not the lightest :roll:

Better replace the elastomers with lumps of granite, Velo. Otherwise Keith will be running 80% sag.

Keith prefers at least 8" at each end. Or so I'm reliably informed. :lol:

No, but at least the big climb is tarmac.
Tarmac covered in sheep shit, but still Tarmac.
