How does the ride compare to your Formula??

Rich
I think that the formula frame was slightly lighter but as complete bikes the dave yates was lighter . as for the ride the dave yates feels stiffer and more responsive and as it was designed around suspension forks the angles aren't messed up to much so the steering as nice and sharp . also it has very short chainstays (i think under 16 " ) so it climbs really well . But i would still like to have the formula aswell .
