Rich,,shame you could not make it chap,, trails were a blast.. :)

Longun , :) cheers , I like the way it looks,, maybe a few tweaks but overall pleased.. , ,if anything , feels a little big for me , but think this could be down to me riding the P20 a lot , which is smaller,,

I was really impressed how it climbed,, certainly on technical climbs I was amazed at how well it kept traction , position felt good,, descending was nice and tracked really well, found the F7 forks though to be very direct :)

The frame did not feel as comfy or as springy as the Ritchey, and thought that it felt somewhat dead in feel.. which was a little disappointing :( , expected it to be a little more springy tbh.. :)

The forks however, I'm not keen on , feel very harsh,, direct but harsh,, I've been spoilt maybe by the logics on my P20 Smile


Just found these Ti forks on the bay and immediately thought of you. Similar style as the Orange forks but lighter and more compliant. Only trouble is they have a disk brake mount :(

Looking quality, that build, Si 8) 8)

Decals look bloody awesome, even from a distance, and loving all the gold jewellery on it too. Simple touches eh? :wink: :)

Least I know where all that Jagwire over-braid went in the end 8) :lol: :lol:

Mike,, Cheers for finding them forks,, they do look a little like a orange fork dont they :) , think I'm going to try her with a set of suspension forks first to see if that makes it feel nicer.. :)

Cheers steve,, ;) , I do find its the little touches that make a nice build.. ;)

... Magas... well done fella,, I wondered how long it would take someone to comment on the cable,, yes it was creased,, its now replaced though with a nice straight cable.. ;) :)

Thanks fella, I am no collector and a great believer that bikes are meant to be ridden and not hung on a wall.. ;) , and it is a mountain bike after all so supposed to be dirty.. ;) :lol: :lol:
