drinking in the details
with the 'other' project
chain stay fuel line protection
the build is listed elsewhere on the forum but as a quick breakdown:
highline medium 600lb spring (i'm a big lad)
fsa head set
race face evolve chain set
hone front mech
deore rear mech
white tiger rear
maxxis minion front
it's brilliant, climbs so well. better than i imagined possible, better by far than a 223dd and better by a considerable amount than a demo eight (better bb clearance).
nice and short but still stable at speed. steep HA (shaheeb about 68 when sagged) for technical singletrack (the best).
did a couple of small drops the other night and the weird thing was no banging clattering or fuss, just a squish as the tyres compressed and away.
the boost control is on the second ring in and the propedal is nearly fully on but not quite. i haven't messed with pressures and it feels great.
top job dt and crew this is my only offroad bike and as such will be used all year and all weathers i'll keep you posted how it fares.
