    Starling Murmur

    I like the looks other this steel single pivot.

    It's a unique bike and everyone asks about it which is nice if you're into that.

    It's much longer than my previous bike but despite this I had no problem getting round switchbacks. It excels surfing over loose rocks as you feel nicely planted between the wheels. It gives you lots of control on the steeps.

    It's my 1st 29er and initially it felt a bit sluggish to get going but I think that also may be down to the massive tyres on there.

    It's not light, but I managed to climb 1000m with a 20min hike a bike one morning despite my shocking level of fitness.

    Unfortunately it is currently not being used as I managed to break a vertabra in a moment of hubris at a local bike park. Doh!

    Hi Travis, I rode one of these last week, just 4 shuttle run blasts. I concur with some of the reviews out there, this is a quality ride. Has a great feel to it. Fun and likes to get reckless but can handle it. A special outlier bike this one. FYI

    Looks like a nice bike. Similar to the frame shirk built.
