    That is sweet mate. I saw one in my local Evans a while ago and it looked amazing. Like the vid too!

    I hope you enjoy it. I love mine, done about 2500 miles on it so far and it handles censored road surfaces brilliantly.
    I'm around 68kg and run mine with the "Medium" rated Future Shock spring. I've removed the spaces and reduced stem height to the minimum (and had the benefit of no steerer tube to cut.
    Handling is great and I'm enjoying my first experience of disc brakes (don't want to start that debate though).

  • Great colour scheme, I went for the Elite and love it. Any plans to change any parts?
  • yeah I haven't had a chance to get out on it much yet due to rain, rain and more rain. But will most likely take a few spacers out to get a little more drop to match my old bike setup. But agree that it is by far the most smoothest ride ever, such a good bike for the bad roads we have around Sussex and surrey. Hopefully get some more miles on it and will re-post an update.
