Went over Cannock Chase on it over the weekend with my mates and had a great laugh. It rode really well but it was just a little too ridged that’s why I’m trying to get some old school shox from off ebay.

Very much like my Clockwork, will be even more so if you put RC35s on it 8)

Keep it rigid!! More fun and at least you feel like you could die on rutty decents.

Also lighter and less maintenance.


An ideal date! :D
