I must say two things that REALLY stood out on the first tentative steps around the block...
1. The Tioga 1.95" tyres had too much air volume and made the back end feel 'odd' as if it was whippy. Changed to much smaller air volume IRC Notos XC's (1.9" and 55psi) and it feels SO much better.
2. It felt as if the headset was too tight, every time I turned the bars I had to correct as I was turning in more than I wanted to... Head set is fine, just never had a bike this responsive before
Now I know what the pretentious jurno's mean by 'think a bike around a corner'!
LOVE IT SO MUCH! Wanted one since 1992 and now have one!
