    First WFO in Europe (probably)

    Until otherwise corrected this is the first WFO in Europe.

    It arrived this morning, I started building when I got home from work and I just finished (11pm).

    Here is 2000 words worth.

    Amazing cable routing by Niner, someone please tell me if I got it correct!

    I know my brake cable is too short, have to think about that one.

    Frame was ugly out of the box, but looks slick built.

    Lower shock mount is unbelievably tight, almost had to crowbar the shock in, Niner assures me it is normal.

    I will give a quick ride report tomorrow on my commute, will be giving a proper test on the weekend in Wales.

    Lookin' good. Looks like the UK's WFO is going to get a good testing...

    I see you're still using your propriety WB's stanchion gloves, he he. Needed though for UK conditions - I had to send my 135's back twice with failed seals...

    All problems in mountain biking can be solved by going faster, except the ones that are caused by going too fast.

    I have a new front wheel to go in too, 5cm wide =-)

    Still working out air pressures, but first impressions are looking positive.
    The fork feels significantly different, I guess the slacker front helps ALOT.

    Off for a lunchtime street ride,

    Lunchtime ride was fun.

    Top tip for setting up, when riding street on tubed nanoraptors, put more than 15PSI in.

    Still getting used to the position, but the increase in stability is significnt!
    One of my play areas is some large rocks cemented in the ground to discourage most cyclists/pedestrians. wasn't even slightly defelected, just sailed through fine.

    This is going to be a beast on the DH.
