Both currently run as single speeds

Rascal is running Bullseye wheelset and Paul's brakes, with CQP crankset

Manta is sporting Rigid Pace forks and Bonty Ti risers, with a nice Bullseye crank and White Industries Hubs

Love them both :D

Believe it or not, the original Manta design was based around a rigid fork, it was just the "current trend" that ment they came with a short travel suspension fork.

To be honest I much prefer it, the bike doesn't "jack up" as much as it does with a suspension fork and feels a lot more direct, but in the same light comfortable, with nearly 5" of travel :o

Kind of need to try it to believe it
