Just finished my build, and took it for a spin today on Syncline in the Gorge. Gotta say I'm loving this bike! Great day, great trail, great bike. Nice and light/stiff, but the carbon rear really makes it feel smooth.

Nice build, beautiful backdrop.

It's about time I posted mine as well.

New Fox F80 FIT RLC on the front.

Both look great! Sabresix, how does it compare to the ala carte in Melbourne conditions?

The Moto Rapido is definately easier to rail through corners compared to the Ala Carte - especially at Lysterfield. Ride comfort is greatly increased on the Moto Rapido, surprisingly enough. I guess it's those carbon stays - no lost of lateral stiffness though.

I have since converted tha Ala Carte to a SS.


Sorry I've hijacked your thread.
Is that a new FIT fork you've got mounted as well?

Yeah, I installed the new FIT F80. Of course it's going to get some rides before it's totally broken in, but I can already tell it's a great fork. Amazing how light it was out of the box, and it's still stiff on the bike.
