I know, I know, keep meaning to take it to work to use the steerer cutting jig, but the weather has been sooooo crappy and as you can see, I'm somewhat precious about the bike, the excess steerer will be gone by the end of the week, I promise!

The head angle looks all messed up on that. Like someone's taking it from the front and rear and squeezing it? Too much travel rear shock?

I dunno.

Nope, it's the stock shock. the Mantra has a steep head angle anyway - not for the nervous, but the shock is set up so that you only use the middle 4 out of 7 inches of rear travel, you set the sag so the bike sits down 1.5 inches when you get on it - makes for very plush rear end whilst in the saddle.

the front is quick, but as a former BMXer not uncomfortably so for me.

I like it, did prefer it with the other tyres though, and it's taught my 2 year old what the colour blue is :D
Now go and build one in red, green and yellow :lol:
