    Well, the ineviteble has happened, the inbred now has gears!

    After trying it as a single speed (and not really getting on with it :P ) i've got hold of some of the new Deore groupo, namely a shadow rear mech, HT2 cranks and a front mech (coupled to my old XT shifters).
    On first impresions this new Deore is amazing :shock: easily comparable to the XT it is replacing ('07). good solid shifts with no slop anywhere, and suprisingly light (esp the cranks) cant wait to test it out :D
    There is also a pair of WTB weirwolf 2.3's, rather than semislicks now the weather is a bit pants.

    huh theres no suspension. :lol: how very strange. how do you get on riding rigid. i love my 8" of front sus and 9.1" of rear bounce. i dont think i could go rigid.

    much better, gears are what this bike was crying out for! now you need some of those lovely rebas of on-one set to 120mm, and it will be perfect....... :lol:

    have you still got the Santa Cruz frame floating about?? Does it have a figure on it?

    I like the new bike, but it didnt look right as an SS some how... best of luck with it
