Well the new stead arrived. Lots of lovely bling.
Only been up and down the car park at work, want to hit the gravity stuff sooner rather than later but still fighting off the man flu.
There's a bully's star prize in it for the best name suggestion keeping withing the theme of my other bikes.
anyway here's some pictures

    nice, I was toying with getting one but opted for the 160 ltd as I thought this one may be a little too lightweight. Lot's of bike for the money though

    Looks nice.

    If you have to give it a name I'd go for Jimmy Saville.

    Dusk, i liked the 160 but the weight was that much more as was the price (which wasnt really a point when i ordered it)
    EH_Rob, Jimmy was a bloke and not in keeping with the theme? Did he touch you or something?

    Oh, I thought the theme was giving inanimate objects human names. Just me being silly I guess.

            So i just spent 40 mins setting the sag properly etc.
            WOW completely different bike to the one that i rode this morning. You know when its right. amazing.

            2 things though, the grips are horrid and i'll be oredering some new ones in a min.
            and the reverb sticks about 3/4 way on the way up. hopefully this will free up?

            Guessing it just needs to bed in like a fork.

            Nice ride, btw.

              Even though the 160 ltd is a bargain this one is ridiculous, similar spec in terms of RRP but 500 euro cheaper :o

              I only went for the 160 as I want to replace my dh bike but still be able to ride up hills!

              I'll be interested to hear how you get on, and maybe i'll order some new grips just in case.... :?

              i think its the price of the BOS suspension that pushes the 160 up.
              How you getting on with it?
              My maiden voyage will be on sunday, so i'll let you know.

              T'is an awesome bike full stop, let alone the fact that its not much over £1600 delivered. I do kind of wish i'd of spent the extra and got the 2.0 sometimes (just for the weight saving), but then I think sensibly that this one is a far better bike than i'll ever be a rider !

              Haha yeah, as long as it's not a reacharound, well not in public anyway..

              Keep us posted how you get on with yours, only seen one other YT and that was a 160ltd a few weeks ago at Stile Cop.

              so the proper man sized grips have arrived, and as predicted the mods have started before the maiden voyage

              Really interested how you get on with this as I'm poised to pull the trigger on it before the price goes up at the end of the month. Do share after your ride on Sunday.
