Other info:

I got the frame to replace my Trance as I'm after something with a bit more travel at the back. I'm slowly upgrading the rest as funds allow so hopefully by summer it will be how I want it.
First impressions are it's short so should be fun going down but might not be best for the climbs. Looking forward to getting out on it properly, and getting some decent pictures too.
:)

  • That's got quite a high BB, same as mine, which makes it lovely on the DH parts.

    Thanks for all the concern about the phone! He actually seems quite happy sitting there on the floor, scared of heights you see :P

    It hopefully won't be too long until I can get to Glentress and see how the bike performs.

    As for the red cables, I had them on the Trance before and was just going to bin them until I realised they might fit in with the red in the Equilink, plus they seem to do a good job at keeping the inners moving nicely. The plan is to possibly get red hubs when I get new wheels but right now I'm more worried about getting out on it and enjoying riding again.
