    very nice :D
    what tyres are they? maxxis ardents?
    Also, i thought the stiffe was for freeride. Sids are not. :?
  • yeah maxxis ardents m8, I am just going to use this for local trails and around the streets nothing to rough "yet" hehe so the sids will be safe :lol:

    ok.
    I have maxxis ardents too - they're great - very grippy
    just interested, why didn't you get a more xc orientated bike if it's just for xc?
  • tbh i just like the look of the stiffee frames m8 been after one for a while

    That is some proper bling! Make sure some chav doesn't attempt to nick the grips and send them off to CashMyGold! :D

    thxs lads

    the rotors are alligator wind cutters i heard a lot of mixed reviews about them
    but they work good with my avids i don't know what pads are in the calipers tbh
  • Looks really nice, but it definitely needs bigger forks! That said, my mate has done a bit of djing on sids, and they were fine!

    Revs would be nice, but I'd personally put the magura forks on. Their travel adjust system is genius! Instant drop, none of this faffing around turning the top-cap malarky, but unlike talas, the sag % remains the same, whereas with talas the sag mm remains the same.
