  • Looks really nice apart from that downtube! eerrrghh!! :lol:
    Is the frame lacquered at all? or is it just bare carbon?

    it has a matt black finish but in sun light the carbon can be seen straight through it but it has no weave its all totally multi directional.

    sort of like camo
  • How does she ride anyways?

    Rides brilliantly very light at the back so can just skip over everything. climbs with ease in comparison to my full sus. were see how it holds up in terms of quality but hopefully it will be all good already done a few good runs with it and its all sweet.

    That's a beauty!!

    I think you've helped me make up my mind about keeping the 463 frame and adding all my new bits that were destined for the Duster. You've had an off and the bike was fine and OnOne offer a crash replacement service which Charge didn't so it's worth it. At the end of the day they wouldn't design a bike with that much travel if it couldn't handle the odd rock or two.

    What cabling have you used on this?
    Charge Duster (RIP)
