    Riding my 6500 is getting old especially knowing that there's a shiny new RF pro out there somewhere on a very slow boat to the uk haha

    I was wondering. Does anyone know if the 2013 RF Pro has ice tech rotors and pad?

    The 2013 RF Pro comes with Shimano XT and ice tech rotors. Looking at the Retailers guide I can't see the "Trail" pads on the bike pictured. It's not an issue, run the standards until they wear out and then replace them with the heat sink trail pads. The new Shimano brakes are outstanding.

    I considered changing my order as well. Then I rode some other contenders and went right back to the fish. It just feels so good!

    Yeah I check YouTube almost daily hoping for added footage to ease the pain of the waiting period.

    Picked mine up today, but not yet had a "proper" ride, only on a road. Will post again when I've taken it off road, but early indications are very good. This could be the start of something beautiful...

    It looks B-I-G (obviously) but feels just about right.....so far. I'll hopefully take it to my local trails some point this week so will have a proper blast and report back. Looks a LOT better in the flesh too!

    Haha my Mrs would murder me if mine was in the front room!

    What's the stem length on your 21 incher mate? So I can plan ahead and get a shorter stem if I need to, ready for when my fish arrives.

    Quick question; any of the readers of this thread happened to be very savvy with Photoshop? If so I would consider it a real solid if you could come up with an image or two of the Rumble Fish elite without the Black Sea that comes on it and its place put the white seat that comes on the base model.

    Thanks for the info again Ready. My Fish came with the rim strips so looks like I'll be picking her up Saturday and hitting the trail centre near where I live on Sunday. Too busy tomorrow with family stuff to pick it up

    I'll pop some pics on here as soon as I can
