    Helius FR + Totems = Rock Gobbler

    vid - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ9TLSh2cKg

    It ate up the trails at Glentress this bank holiday.. the first bit of the vid show the bike sucking up some chunky rocks... I had loads of control left and was not getting bounced around at all...

    I had no trouble climbing even with the forks at 180 but I did have to keep an eye on the front end..I was easily keeping up with my mates on lighter machines.. so much traction when climbing.. even on the loosest gravel with roots all over it i didnt slip a single tyre.

    The downhills just smoked.. plush plush plush....a great all round machine.

    Hey Karve, those shots look great! Once the leg is on the mend, give us a shout as I would love to have a go at Glentress and I also live on the Kings Cross main line.
