    Little Spitfire Action vid

    Helimech on a Roller:



    No idea what set up he is running. He remarked that the Spitfire feels better in the steep stuff than his Gonad although the Santa Cruz was better in some sorts of terrain.

    I popped on it for a little while. It felt overly slack to me in the parking lot, but that is the style now a days. It was certainly stiff enough, and I would consider riding one if I wanted to buy a new wheelset.

    Yep, fun bike so far. Very happy with it! Had a RS monarch on it for about a half hr - sucked. The RS was very stiff with only 85psi and the rebound was very slow with it all the way to the rabbit? Might've got a lemmon? went back to the RP23, much better!
    Thanks Enel for the stoke. Hit the little gapper at Bootleg yesterday, woohoo.
