Certainly not one of the best Fats but one of, if not the
best early full susser. Nothing wrong with the way it will ride- it has the same parts as the last one more or less (AMP Fork, Risse damper, Syncros Cranks and finishing kit, XTR brakes, shifters and mechs etc.) so even though I have not tried it out I'm not expecting it to be any different. Its just i'm not sold on the looks of this one. I told myself I wasnt going to get worked up on looks- it is my 7 stanes bike for taking the sting out of Inners, 'Tress and Kirroughtree etc. but I'm a shallow fool and want it to look good too.
My old SAB looked the baws but I'm not sure on this one. I don't think the aquafade works with all the polished alloy. Both Kingroon and Sidewinder had build problems with this combo I guess, but I wanted to crack it, but I think i'm failing.
I have 4 options.
1. Sell the fooker and admit defeat.
2. Paint the main frame Charcoal like the last one.
3. Ditch the AMP forks for a colour matched Judy DH and colour match the rear end.
4. As above but repaint the whole lot in Grellow.
What do you think?
