    Allow me for being wrong.. Mullet time ..Starling Twist

    So before it kicks off i couldn't find the correct page for 27.5/29.

    Looking at the new Starling Twist and im ready to pull the trigger on the copper front triangle and matte black rear, hope brakes, ohlins suspension (****ing bonerville) this is about to be a dream come true for me. Not sure if ill ride it or hang it in my lounge.

    Its been a journey from the SC 5010 to looking at the BTR pinner (cotic flaremax kona process and an upgraded trek remedy), to finally deciding what bike i will upgrade to.

    just buzzing and wondering if anyone is contemplating one of these because they look stunning. Ive read just about everything about pros and cons of 27.5 and 29 and i think this will sort me out for years to come. local trail blasting and the odd xc race through the summer months and of course my local 100 mile 12000ft elevation ride which will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the remedy as last year i nearly died.

    Starling... nice.

    I've only seen one so far. That was at Fort William in the Highlands. A Swoop. Had an adjustable shock mount. Frame looked like quality custom work. Although I'm across the pond, I'm a fan of U.K. bikes and related hardware.

    Pull that trigger!

    Triggers been pulled. Buzzing is an understatement.
    The wait is going to be a tough one!

    Bike looks great, although I wouldn't be messing with Ohlins. Not 100% convinced they have their mtb stuff figured out yet. But that's just me. I'm sure you'll love it. Can't beat the looks of that bike. Super cool.
