I am re-writing this
Well the rides i havedone on it have all been smooth and the Brains are just fantastic if i may say so.
Well i havenīt had a chance to test it in the woods that much yet as i got the bike in October i wonīt be able to ride it on single tracks amongst roots and stuff, but where i will be able to ride it i will do it to the extent of my abilities which are little bit "floating" as i donīt know how much my body can handle anymore.
i have done over 400 Km on this bad boy thus far.
Alot of them are to work and home but also a few longer rides.
i am really lucky to have this bike and to be able to ride a bike at all.
So here are the +
it is fast
it is light
it is good for everything i throw at it
now the -
well not many i know only thing is it feels like it is as fragile as glass
which means i am so careful with it not to damage the frame on it which makes me a bit over cautious of any noise i feel shouldnīt be there.
WOW WOW WOW
what a bike i mean is there anything it canīt handle when it comes to terrain?
well yes there are a few or so sort of terrain but generally i donīt know.
the model it self has won the Olympics that stands for something this bike will probably outlast me as i am not sure how many ears i can ride a bike.
But as long as i can i will ride it to the extent of my abilities that is for sure.
As it comes to the Carbon railed Phenom saddle it is outstanding it isnīt at all as hard as i thought it to be, i do however sit lower now than before but i got more pain in my butt from the Phenom Comp Gel saddle than i do from this, today i rode it for 46 km on and off some of the way home was easier to get by standing up but the tarmac parts it was good.
so if you are thinking about it get it it is that good.
otherwise there isnīt much to complain about the bike the fork keeps itīs pressure as does the shock in the rear, the only downside is that i did not notice the length of the cable housing and it did rub on the downside of the BB that is however fixed for now.
I will however next time i change cables fix longer housing i also noticed today a ticking sound sitting and pedaling probably a sand corn or something thatīs stuck sometimes it sounds "plastic" sometimes i canīt hear it but there is something making that ticking sound.
so i just need ot get more confident on the bike and i probably will let go a bit more than i can do now.
well that is some of my thoughts about this bike for now anyways
