I took it out today and I'm impressed with how it rides, apart from a creaking which seems to be coming from the pivot area, it's very nice to ride.

Having read up about it the pivot's on the I-drive need greasing so when I get chance I'll have ago at pulling it apart to grease it.

my old style one always used to creak :lol:

one thing i did notice with one of my workmates ones was that he has the rp23 with propedal, which kind of makes the i drive almost obsolete :lol:
