I vote gold. Btw, what fork ya got on there? 140mm travel?
Riiiight... Keep thinking that. :thumbsup:Coasting said:That SL will still be churning out the miles when the carbon craps given up the ghost.One rock strike should do it
The pic doesn't reflect all of the upgrades. I have a pair of Stan's Crest wheels instead of the Mavic's in the photo.VO2 Lax said:Those things don't matter too much. Go for some good wheels!!
I have actually had the rear triangle stripped and re-powder coated black.ntj said:The bike looks good enough to me. I'd me more interested in getting the shock Push'd. I stupidly rode mine for years before getting it done -- the bike suddenly came alive and is way more fun and faster, now I want to get the fork done.
That's a fantastic suggestion! What was your turn time?ntj said:Yep, that's the one. Since it's brand new I'd try riding it for a couple of months first, setting it up till you're getting the best you can out of it and you're familiar with the bike's limits. Then send it to Push.
I suppose it will vary depending on rider weights etc but I rode on a familiar track and found myself pushing much higher speeds into corners than usual. The old harshness has gone (compression damping backed off) and the bike's geometry seems to make more sense than before -- the low bb height just adds heaps of stability now. The platform is also useful now, it used to just add harshness, but it rides well even downhill with it on.
