so how are you finding riding it, now you have had it a while?
Hey Carl. It rides great! The bike feels very light and responsive with real forgiveness in the rear.
One thing that did take some getting used to was the steering. I have never ridden anything with such directness! The slightest movement at the bars is all it takes to change direction.
I haven't ridden her for a few weeks unfortunately as I bought some 3dv Hope wheels and the rear needs truing quite badly. Also the front is snow flaked with a mis-matched black rim so I may swap this to a silver and get it laced "normally".
I could also use a middle ring in better condition and I think I will change the Ultegra shifters to good old xt thumbies. A bit more ergonomic. I will get some pics up when it is done.
I love it!
I must admit, i do prefer a straight blade fork myself, and try to use them on a build when i can, the are great on the steering, but sum shake my teeth out...lol.
I will look forward to seeing your wheels, had you thought of a radial built front wheel, it would look handsum on the riddler..
I may have a nice set of Xt shifters somewhere if you would prefer them to your ultegras, let me know if you do, and i have a look for them.
glad your pleased with it, i would be....it looks sensational mate.
