    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!

    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...:yesnod:

    How does the frame look on a 21? I've ordered a 21 also

    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!

    I'm just waiting for a reverb to arrive, but went for the left hand version. Oh, and some new Shimano pedals!
