Had my first off road pedal on it today, takes me back a bit. . . .No sus and loads better off road than on. It feels pretty dead on the tarmac tbh , but off road it is pretty lively.
Raced the dogs around the common, the collie still beat me but only just
Those dodgy looking cantis actually worked ok so might not put v brakes on it yet at least. It climbed better than my Magura does but that is down to the lack of suspension, down hill it is seriously slower but still fun, it does buck about a bit, to be expected I suppose.
I saw my brother today and he is interested in swapping it for my old C16 I traded for a Cyrus amp years ago with him. His Stumpy got trashed when he bust both chainstays at once landing a big drop off in his best thuddy style
Will try and get to a few events on it this year, maybe the Marin Rough Ride.
