    I know of somewhere getting Matt Black Carbon at the start of next week so guess it depends on their previous orders etc.

    I ordered it through Swinnerton Cycles Forest Centre - they were great. Took a fair bit of following up with Santa Cruz /Jungle (on their part, not mine). Jack Swinnerton handled it - great bloke.

    When I did get my frame took it straight to Lee at invisiframe to get it wrapped (same kits as sold on SC website) - and he fitted it for a very reasonable price (and quickly), given how extensive the Bronson kit is . Can't recommend enough - great quality and you really can't see it (I've got the Matte kit on grey frame).

    I've got a skin already to go when the frame arrives. Put one on my blur lt which worked really well. What size frame did you get ?

    Got a large, which seems to work well for me (5'11") - stem is pretty short at 50mm, so doesn't feel overly long.

    I've gone for the same but in yellow. How did you find the 160mm forks up front ? I tested the carbon and Ali but both had 150mm forks but I have a set of 160 talas which I intend to use.
    seen you pick in the Bronson thread. Very nice

    160 works fine - tried it on some pretty tight switchbacks and had no problems - the Pike is apparently slightly shorter A-C than 34 fox, so after sag set, difference to 150 fox setup is minimal. Thing is, it just feels incredible !

    Cheers for the info. I'll post some picks up when it's eventually built
