I love it.
it's UNBELIEVABLE cycle , i hope it really exists ;)


You will use it for xc races or marathons/long rides? I would only put 650b wheels ;) ztr 355+ Schwalbe RR , might be little heavier but smoother with better traction/rolling resistance

Moaar pics please ;] !

How does it ride?
Is it comfy or do you have to bend a lot?
What's you height , weight?
What size is the frame and stem?
Is lefty plush & responsive , or you have ridden better fork? (if so, which one)


I'm thinking of building Rush for next sesion , white-black-green one, but I'm not sure if it's a perfect match for me.

Spec of me = 10 stone 5.9, only ridden a few times, after build, geometry of head is spot on, handles really well, work rate to distance is very low, stem is 100-5, i did have a 120-5 but it was a bit to long for me, i would consider a 2008 frame tho as if a total new frame comes out soon u won't have spent as much money and just replace the frame for the new one. Anyway thats up to u, eer oh ye, i had a fox f120 on it first and what a fork that was great, but i do think the lefty sl is a upgrade due to weight, it does feel a lot like the fox which is a good thing, get it set up right and u cant go wrong. as for picks i just have not got around to it yet, will post some more soon:thumbsup:
bike is medium
have a look at this pick when i first got it, :cool:
