    A whole load of carbon lovliness. This was the one I was going to buy last year when I got the RZ – I had my doubts about carbon then, so went for the equivalent in aluminium. Carbon it is now though. Changed the Racing Ralph on the front to a Maxxis Advantage, and am going to give the RR on the back a go before probably changing to a Crossmark.

    Thought about the 29er, but really cant see the point.

    First ride early doors tomorrow

    Yay!

    Let us know how she does. 😉

    Very nice, though I’m not the greatest fan of Leftie’s. 😀

    Scalpel:

    positive:

    – Racing HT geometry but with added rear sus

    – seriously light – beautiful carbon!

    – scarily quick

    – Lefty rocks – even this 100mm version

    – very responsive, felt really precise picking lines downhill

    negative:

    – 2×10 gear-set; I WANT MY GRANNY RING BACK

    – HT geometry will always suit me and my routes, but jesus, my hands & arms are killing me. Weight so far forward.

    – It will take time to get used to after 1,500 miles of ‘all-mountain’ on the RZ

    This is a seriously quick bike thanks to the gorgeous carbon frame & insane HT set-up. More than capable of dealing with anything I could throw at it.

    However, it is not a bike for all day touring. the geometry is so aggressive that, as mentioned above, you’ll be feeling it for days!

    It’s going to take me a few miles to get used to it, but I know it’s going to be good…on a biblical proportion!

    Anyway, a few pics from this morning
