Ya. I rode it rigid (see pic link) for the first run, and it was solid. I was kinda hoping it would ride like a barn door swaying in the wind, but it felt like a regular old hardtail. In the rough stuff, while seated, you could definitely feel the rear end move, but who rides the rough stuff seated? :wink:

Another exquisite build racked up there, Mike - you sure are a consistent performer!


Indeed. maybe we could pit the best of the UK (Jez basically) against the best of the US (Mike on current form) in a future BoTM. Biggest problem would be both have moved on most of their projects :lol:
