    Just built up my new moment, here's the first pics. Haven't rode it yet so no feedback. All complete apart from a pair of TALAS 36 forks which are coming next week

    Very nice

    Your Moment looks sweet! Let us know what you think after a few rides. I have an 08 Moment on order to replace my 06 Moment. I can't wait.

    Very nice indeed. I like the looks of those carbon Juicys
    I like to ride Bikes. This might be turning into an obsession, not sure?

    That's one of the sharpest Moments I've ever seen. Simple and clean looking!

    Cheers guys. Had a few rides on it now and it definitely didn't dissappoint. I've got an Epiphany as well and the Moment does ride similarly but it's just more rock solid on the downhills. Really confidence inspiring. It's not bad uphill either, there's a technical climb in Grizedale forest which I only clean in about 1 in 3 attempts on the Epiphany and I did it first time on the Moment.

    Still haven't got the 160mm forks yet but it rides really sweet with 140's anyway. The DHX air shock is a nightmare though, I think it's probably a great shock when you set it up right but it has so many adjustments: pro pedal, boost valve, rebound and bottom out. Just need to keep twiddling till I find the sweet spot.

    That is just because you did not invert your bike and let the oil saturate the foam ring. It is in the manual.

    On that note you do need a backup. For a "freeride" fork it can only withstand one crash. $350 later I will be getting mine back from Fox. A dent in the lowers wore out the uppers now both need to be replaced.

    Anyways this is about Sparkers bike. It is a nice ride. I just don't care for Nevegals. They are good in the wet though.
