Hi Raouligan... we usually ride for 3 to 4 hours depending on how lost we get :wtf:

Eccles... yep a 456 :D I was trying to decide between a 456 and something like a Slackline or Piglet and trying to figure out why they cost twice as much when a bundle deal came up that turned it into a no brainer ;)

Now watching the classifieds for a bargain Slackline/Piglet frame so I can make a direct comparison ;) I'm assuming N+1 works double for steel hardtails :D

Man cave... wish it was, quiet at work so building it there rather than on the kitchen table :shh:

Hi ,
It looks like a Dirt bike
The frame angle looks very much like my p2 and p3 .
They are good for tricks but the seat is too low for long distance work.

Thanks guys :thumbup: I'm very happy with it and from the quick ride around the block it's very different to my 29er which is the only other mtb I've got to compare it too. I'm starting to understand why there is so much 'discussion' about the different wheel sizes ;)

It really does feel just right. Steering is a bit sharp, I ordered the 35mm stem instead of the 50mm by mistake, but I'm going to leave it and see how I get on with it. Probably mean that I crash on the inside of the corner rather than the outside :)

Can't wait for the weekend :D

Bob... I think the angle of the picture is distorting the look of the frame and the saddle height... it's not low :)

I upped my stem to 70mm to help it climb a bit more sensibly. I think I've got a 50mm stem in the garage if you need a test of different lengths :)

Cheers Adam, I'll take you up on that offer :thumbup:

Depending on Ciar's wheel situation I may make the trip to Danbury this Sunday if there aren't any other takers for Epping :)

Hi,
Your bike must have a longer seat post .
My dirt bikes seat does not go that high.
The frame seems angled dodn wards to the rear wheel .
My camber i think is more square in the pilot area .
It looks good .
My age and rear needs a chance to rest so need the rear sus part of a bike.
Bet it will fly out of the bomb holes etc.
Bob
