    Any Clydes here that are Dh rig owners?

    I just bought one... trust me it took abit getting used to pedaling this pig around, but now that i am used to it, it pedals uphill( with a little more effort of course) as good as on flats. The Race Face Evolve DH Xtype cranks and external BB are like heaven under your feet
    And Bob to your answer your question from my other post, No I didn't get divorced for buying this

    Post'em if you got 'em...

    Beautiful Bike, Denis

    While I'm not a DH rider, I'm sure you'll find a lot of Clyde DH riders. SMT will surely be along to give his thoughts. You may want to post to the DH forum if you haven't already. Enjoy the new ride. Best wishes to you and Mrs. Wickerman.

    Yep, just what I was thinking as I read the title of the thread, "Here comes SMT".

    That doesn't look like that much of a "pig".

    First let me start off by saying nice rig, congrats.

    Not trying to rain on your parade, so please don't take this the wrong way, but probably the reason it seems light for a DH bike is because it's not a true DH machine (read overbuilt and not very pedal worthy). Granted that maybe what you use it for, but lets be serious it was not designed or intended to be used as a DH bike per say. If anything it would be better classified as a Lt.FR bike. Still sweet none the less and better in the long run, DH bikes s#ck for pedaling around.

    FWIW, I'm a clyde and this is my main ride...
