It’s super light and the XTR is suitably precise. Geometry is different to my Marin and the little extra width to the handlebars seems to make it more comfortable.

Forks are lovely and very responsive.

I’ll have to take it for a longer ride to see how it truly compares.

Very happy with the result though. Need to put the finishing touches and then try my arm in BOTM maybe.

Congrats for that bike! So happy to see the forks and bar on it ;-)
A serious candidate for the BOTM challenge!

Get it in there yer great Jessie! 😂
I've gone easy on you with the Alpinestars! You could wait till there's a month with an 'I just had to have it....Now!' theme? Or 'Third world commuters' month?👨‍🌾
Looks fantastic mate,proper job.Much prefer your choice of decals to the pale blue too.😁👍

LOL. I was hoping for a “Somerset Kona” month but know that Magpiegifts has something special lined up so would need to be August. 😀😀😬😬

There is only one choice of decals my friend. I don’t know why that blue keeps being discussed. It’s Kona not mothercare.

A few weeks to go before nominations end, if a Yeti gets posted then there isn’t any point, unless you have an older Yeti
