Single Speed MTB
can I say thank you. The frame is everything I wanted and expected!
It is significantly stiffer than my steel frame, especially
around the BB area and the front end around the head tube. This
makes the bike fly up hills, and makes it feel really accurate
around corners. The frame is 1.5lbs lighter than my steel frame!!!
The whole bike is now 23lbs, for an MTB with disc brakes, suspension
and no carbon this is very very good.
I rode the
bike first on very familiar trails on Tuesday night and was
glad that I had Wednesday off work to get out all day on it.
I ended up riding for 5 and a half hours on Wednesday, covering
all of my favourite local trails. Usually this would leave me
aching, especially on the singlespeed set up, but I felt like
I could have ridden on for another 5 hours!
