Well & truly bitten by the downhill bug now, so the SX Trail's now been sold and this little beauty arrived today:

Even the formula discs are impressive:

Not sure how accurate the scales are:

Full Spec:

Frame: Summum Stealth alloy Zero Suspension System 210mm - Medium
Rear Shock: Fox RC2 241x76mm
Fork: Rockshox BoXXer RC 200mm
Chainguide: E*13 LS1
Rear Derailleur: SRAM X9 Short cage 9 speed
Shifter: SRAM X7
Chainset: Truvativ Hussefelt 1.0 165mm 38t
Bottom Bracket: Truvativ Howitzer XR
Cassette: SRAM PG-950 11-26T 9S
Chain: SRAM PC-951 9s
Front Brake: Formula RX 203mm
Rear Brake: Formula RX 203mm
Handlebars: Mondraker Anodized DH 31.8mm 780mm
Stem: M-Decline integrated 50mm
Headset: FSA IS-2 1-1/8"
Grips: Onoff Diamond close end
Rims: DT F630
Front Hub: Onoff Disc Pro DH 20mm
Rear Hub: Onoff Disc Pro DH 12x150mm
Spokes: CN Stainless Butted
Tyres: Kenda Excavator DTC
Saddle: WTB Silverado Comp
Seatpost: Easton EA-30 Offset 31.6 350mm
Pedals: Onoff flats (these were a surprise in the box as I wasn't expecting any - they'll be replaced by Carbon Cycles Flatties in black as soon as the postie arrives tomorrow & that'll lose a tiny bit of weight).

The build quality is superb and it feels really balanced just when you pick it up, the balance point is virtually smack in the middle of the frame (unlike the SX Trail which, because of the 180mm domains, was very front heavy).

The plan now is to completely cover the frame in Helicopter & Shelter tape before I ride it. Also seriously thinking about getting the carbon shockguard / mudguard that came as standard with the Pro Team models as the rear shock looks quite exposed and will get covered in censored as soon as I ride it.

Will take some better, outside, photos at the weekend when I take it for its first spin - can't wait :D:D:D

    Sorry, didn't work - it's mine, all mine I tell you :twisted:

    Off with the Excavators tonight and on with the mud spikes ready for Sunday. Going with Wetscream on the front & Swampthing on the rear - now that would be a censored on the commute, lucky I don't intend to pedal it much :D

    On with the heli-taping.....

    Cheers Ears!! As I said to one of my mates last night "I'll still be slow down the hills, but now I'll be grossly over-biked as well".

    Thanks - it's even better in the flesh, the hydroforming of the aluminium (Stealth tubing I think Mondraker call it) is sooooo sexy!!
  • Carbon fender & Carbon Cycles pedals fitted:

    That should keept the censored off the shock and my feet on the pedals!!
  • First outing today, at Macc Forest DH tracks. Feels amazing, so solid (weren't they a"crew"?) and it makes steep stuff feel anything but.

    At the moment there is far more bike than rider, but hopefully that'll change as I get used to it and its capabilities.

    Here's some photos of it (clean before I rode it) in Macc Forest:

    Looks fantastic

    Looks like it was dry for you. Was going to come, but had bad night with little un and was knackered... get yourself a fenderbender, best upgrade you'll make.

    I'm going to blow the bank on a new build ( within reason ) NOW DONE!!

    Well, it didn't rain - but the middle section was very muddy. Fun to watch Mike slither around on his (virtual) slicks whilst all of the rest of us had Wetscreams on!!! Top section was great fun, only a couple of puddles and fast running.

    Yes, got a Fenderbender on the Giant and had one on the SX Trail - hadn't thought about fitting one to this, don't know why. Will have to get shopping!!

    Sounds like a plan, although a new bike doesn't mean that I'm fast - still slow :oops: :oops:
