Was interesting, rolled over bedrock and slabs without slowing at all. Instead of hard hits taking speed out, it keeps going and punishes you instead. Great for ss as you don't lose any momentum, but so unforgiving! Every bit of leg power you put in shoves it forward too!


Best bit was the reaction of the group standing around the tricky rock section as I hit it with more speed than even I'd feel was wise on the Intense, nearly as good next lap on the Kona freeride thingy at even more stupid speed!

very cool kaiser- front bounce- ratio? I love the rigid front end, my arms/shoulders are aching but no wrist issues so think I'm getting used to the dales rather firm ride 8)

Had a go on AC's One-one today and it is defo the way forward- so comfy and feels just right- will be doing the splatter job tonight so watch this space :roll: :lol:
