    Total Weight: 14.3 kg'sMorewood Sukuma built and ridden-20130130_165605.jpg

    Initial impressions:
    Pedals well - snappy. Not as plush as the 150mm bike it replaced (Intense Tracer). Very stiff and therefore very responsive and intuitive. Corners very well. Has a 'poppy' feel which makes it a lively bike to ride. The back wheel and front wheel feel like they're singing from the same hymn sheet. Early days but good first ride. Oh and feels lighter to ride than it is.

    Are you running HD 2.4" front and back? I couldn't find any info on rear tyre clearance. I picked up HD for the front but still need a rear. Start building this week.
    I just want to ride.

    I have run a HD in the rear - heaps of clearance - no issues.

    What's your build going to be?

    Raced it this weekend - very good bike.
