SSing a non URT FS frame :shock:

Big Eck is mad, not only has he only got one gear which even us SS guys have got to admit is not always sensible, he also has the energy sapping bob of a full sus frame. Good thing he's strong, he'll use twice as much energy to go forward as a hardtail or rigid SS bike :lol:


the rears got lock-out :wink:

So why not just use a hardtail, reduced weight and simplicity :wink:

Was considering this as a possible comedy option for this year's SSEC.

Last night I finished building up the SAB and then took the Moots out for its first proper ride (Dalby wasn't a fair test as we walked most of it due to heavy snow). Was very impressed with it- the acceleration is unreal; every ounce of effort instantly turns into a forward burst. Very comfortable over the bumps and roots too. Just need to have more time on steep descents with those Jones bars though- control was great but it feels just odd. More time will breed confidence I suppose. Just need a few longer rides now to break that Brooks Saddle in- bruised arse this morning :oops: :x
