    Look what arrived in NZ from the_pilot!

    A very yummy treat arrived from the_pilot in 72 hours (London to Auckland)

    To say I am excited is an under statement. Build is taking place now, first ride this weekend in Rotorua, NZ....

    Yeah ha

    Thanks, looked at 650b, but in all honesty, I wanted to be able to keep my Enve wheels....

    the_pilot built a frame with angles etc etc that we're spot on from me... In my mind, it is the next generation for want of a better word of my Monster Truck - AM29er.... Of which when I built it, there was very little kit out there for long travel 29ers...

    Can't wait till the weekend, get busy on it with my bike crew....

    Yeah ha

    Cheers,

    She is built up, first ride tomorrow.

    Am awaiting parts to convert my Hadley / Enve wheels to 142mm rear and 15mm front axel. So have some Easton wheels... Have not ridden non carbon wheels for a few years. LOL

    The build has come in at 31.7 lbs... That's with Hans D tyres, not the lightest at all and a Stealth Dropper Post...

    Am pretty happy, tomorrow will be the tell tale...

    Car park test, seems the Pike needs far less air than is plastered on the RS label on the fork....

    It is slack and low, yum mines...

    I went with XO 11 speed, liked the all black colour on the raw frame with a nice hint of blue....

    Bit more setup today, feel have the shock and fork setup as best I can for a car park ride today.... Thank you to dipper for your settings in your post, I based things on that... Will see how it goes tomorrow.

    Stoked to see how much clearance there is on the 2.35 Hans D tyre....

    Riding around the driveway etc, it feels not hugely different to the Monster Truck, which is a good thing, can feel it is a little slacker, but not to much slacker than the Monster Truck, which with the CK Angle Set was some 68 deg with the Dorado...

    Few more shots, cause am fizzing at the bung for the first ride tomorrow.

    Enve wheels should be sorted in a few weeks I hope.

    This bike is a Super Bike....

    Will type more when I have some time, back on a plane...

    But, I couldn't be happier, magic bike... Perfect tweaked geo to advance and improve the Monster a Truck....

    Couldn't stop smiling for six hours riding it yesterday.....

    Awesome bike, Whafe!!! Glad you're stoked on it!

    It doesn't look like a wagon wheeler at all. All looks proportionate. Beauty.
