    I like it, good choice on the colour gives the illusion of being raw in the pictures. I think the new 2x10 slx looks awesome mate.
    Nice build that.

    How do you rate the Gravity Dropper?
    Nice bike by the way!

    Cheers guys, dropper is better than ice tech which a mate has but not as good as reverb on the strive by some way.

    I love the way it looks, jut wish the pedals were a closer match to the hope red

    Does look nice, though not sure about a QR on a dropper seatpost!
    Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.
  • Wee update, fork had some issues and the u turn stopped working, took it to flotec in linlithgow and the did miracles on it! Bike rides amazingly now and its just as fast as the strive in 70% of situations...
  • Really wanted a SS, always on the lookout in the classifieds lol.

    Great fun bikes!
  • really nice, a part of me is wishing i hadn't sold mine
  • Absolutely stunning bike mate, really classy. What does she weigh if you don't mind me asking?

    About 28lbs lol. It ain't a weight weenie but it's my favourite bike for 85% of my riding. It only feels marginally lighter than my 160mm strive.

    Stiffened up my front and rear ends. ...


    9mm through axel in the front, 10mm in the rear and some new flows on evo 2 hubs. Ditched tubeless though, too much faf

    rides great, almost too stiff now

    Very nice. I used to have one of these. I did everything from a season of downhill racing to xc races on it. Mine went through a couple different builds.
    Great fun to ride and absolutely indestructible.
