    Nice wheels mate, welcome to the enduro gang 8)

    .
  • cheers fella's! Had it up at Glentress for the first time at the weekend. First time on the new bike and also first time since I wrecked myself 2 months ago, so nothing too heroic. Still, felt fantastic though and i just can't get over the brakes. They are simply amazing!

    Lol. You've never met my wife :oops:

    I was in Specialized in Chester 2 weeks ago after going to Llandegla and my cousin was egging me on! Can't tell you how close I came! :( :roll:
  • Lovely dubbly!! great bike and a real oozy colour.

    By the way, the brake cable isn't to long, it just needs undooing off the bar(the lever) and rerouting between the other cables and the underneath of the stem, that'll take out the 'slack'.
    Then go ride ur legs off!!! :)

    Reflectors have since gone. The frame is a small.
  • cracking bike, its a shame you'll ride it like a big jessie!!
    i spent all me money on whisky and beer!!!
  • Hahahah! I live to prove you wrong! Question for you experts about my...expert. There's two bolt positions fo the bottom of the rear shock. Currently it's in the slightly more angeld rather than the very upright position. What effect will putting it to the other one have?
  • By changing the position you change the length of travel to the shock i'm not sure which way it's set at now but by looking in the pic i would say it's set to longest travel, try swopping it over and see the difference in the ride, i have 3 settings on my links and they all make a difference.
    Go ahead, give it a play!!!!! :wink:

    The setting you have it on in the piccy is freeride/all mountain. It gives a slacker head angle.
    The other setting gives slightly less travel and is more suited to cross country riding.

    That's what the manual states anyhow!

    I've just ridden it everywhere in the all-mountain setting and it's brill'. Uphill (steep), downhill (rad) and everything in between. No need to touch it imo.

    Hope that helps

    That's excellent thanks! Had a flick through the book, but couldn't see anything. I'll maybe try it just to see how it is, but as you say the bike is great already.

    Much obliged!

    Welcome to the enduro gang. I run mine with the rear shock in the front hole. It seems to speed up the steering a little, it seemed quite lazy to me before that. I think it also increases the bottom bracket height marginally, and hence the c of g of the bike. Which means it tips in to corners a bit quicker too. Not convinced it reduces the amount of travel as the shock still moves through the same stroke but I may be wrong.
    Mines blue though with a sort of chocolate coloured coating:

  • Thanks for that. Cetainly looks like yours is well used! The Scottish rain has just cleaned the mud off mine. Here's what it looked like new:
