    No snow where I am, so I decided to cycle to the trails, 2 miles down the road it was over a foot deep. I quickly gave up haha, enjoy the new bike and I hope you get to use it soon! It looked like a bargain!
  • I have the same bike but 18" frame. I am 5'9, 32 inside leg and TBH it is pretty much perfect size wise ,seems a bit bigger than other 18" frame bikes I have rode. I think I would have found a 20" slightly too big.

    first accessory I got was the matching coloured water bottle and cage :)

  • did you find it easy to setup? did you have to make any adjustments?

    did you have to buy a shock pump to add air? also by default are these forks preset to 100mm? have you worked out how you adjust that?

    Borrowed my mates pump they are pretty easy to set up just have air chamber on left and rebound on bottom right of fork its got a rabbit and turtle ie rabbit for faster rebound turtle for slower i have it in the middle suits me fine

    Yep you'll need a shock pump to add air. If you want to change the internal travel, you have to take the fork apart, and add/remove spacers. Not all forks can do this, and some are only adjustable between 80mm and 100mm.
