Ready for its first "shake down" Ride which I would be doing now if wasnt raining and 4 Deg C!

The only problem I had was with the rear disc rotor circumference catching the caliper - so I swapped the rotors but that made no difference and in the end I put a washer in between the caliper and the 160 adapter, to "lift" the caliper a smidge and that worked!

I will stick another adapter on to see if its that - but I suppose the rear drop outs might be a bit worn causing the hub to sit higher than it should-

And yes my old bonty tyres are starting to crack on thier outer casings so I will see how they get on.

Next job is a oil change in the forks and then the rear triangle change to anno black

Bushes ordered from https://bouncecycles.co.uk/ way better value than TF Tuned 50% cheaper :D

Air shock finally fitted - its feeling appropriatly light for now

I have set the front and rear very plush with a tad more than 30% sag, and its rides like dream.

To Do:
Head is being swapped for a red Hope set.
need to source a dropper for it
paint the rear end black
