    First ride on mine about 10 minutes ago. Very happy, climbed well, felt that spring in the frame feeling too. Even rode it down my DH run on the way back (with the seat down a bit) and it cornered awesome.

    Here's a more recent pic of mine.

    Got both Crossmax's on it, a longer stem and a custom XTR bash. Love the bike!

    All very nice, I'm still waiting for my frame to arrive

    Vernon - Is that a Rohloff you have fitted in the top photo ?

    I'm just wondering if it is does it run ok because you don't have a tensioner on there and the HJ doesn't have sliding dropouts ?

    Hi, andy!
    That' nice ladder riding!!

    How do you feel your RS Recon when you use it at 130mm travel?
    And how long travel do you use usually at that trail?

    Cheers :-)

    I generally run them at 115 most of the time with about 15mm sag. They feel a little undersprung for me. At the end of this trail there is a huck that I always bottom out on. I sometimes wind them out to 130 for this particular trail. Not really happy with them at my weight (90kgs) I intend on moving them onto my wifes bike.

    Hi,

    what is the size of your handjob. I am 5'10, and I don't know if I have to buy a 17,5 or 19.
    I use to ride a M prophet.
    Thanks

    Laurent

    The Handjob is 19.5" and I ride a large Prophet !

    I'm 6'1" with a 34" inseam, I reckon that you would be ok with it at your height. I guess it depends how you like your bike, nice and stretched out or small and flickable.

    So I think the 19,5 would be better for me, my M prophet is a little small for me.

    Where as I am 5'10" and ride a 17.5. With the slope of the top tube, I need a lot of post, but it fits me near prefect with a 80mm stem.

    Im 5'11.5" and Im riding a 17.5 with a 110mm stem and a setback post. I run alot of exposed post, but thats good on an HT b/c it lessens the beating I take. I could run either bike without issue, but decided on the smaller one for handling reasons.

    Thanks for your feedback, I prefer riding short stems so I am going on the 19,5. A 18,5 should be better, I guess ;-)

    One more question,
    is it easy to remove the stickers ? I plan to buy one for my wife and she is not fan of the "handjob" one ...

    Yeah, its real easy. Mine started coming off on their own.

    In fact, I emailed Cove about some replacement decals...but they didnt return my email. I live in the states, and I know they have a QBP deal where they cant sell direct, so Im not sure if they could give me some anyway, but a reply would've been nice.
    Luckily I will be in the neighborhood of the shop later this summer.
