    Ooooo I do like that 8) … nice spec and well executed 8)

    Do the Revs have the 35mm stanchions like the Pikes ?

    thanks.

    the revs are 32mm but rockshox 32s are not as noodley as fox 32s more comparable to fox34s in stiffness. they are perfect for what i need them for and lighter than pikes .

    i got them for a bargain price, they had just had a warranty service by sram and had new uppers, steerer and upgraded rct3 damper , the guy i got them from upgraded to a fox 36. 😀

    Ridiculously over priced IMO 😕 … the RCT3 pike at half the price takes some beating 😉

    Have you given the new rig some stick yet ? 😈

    i’ve taken it over to Thetford a couple of times to dial it in but that is the flattest trail centre on earth so not a real test . i also took it around the local technical xc course in the dark which was brilliant fun, so far its proving to be everything i expected and more, such a smooth ride.

    hopefully i will be able to get to chicksands this weekend and try it out in the bike park on the dual slalom, 4x and pump tracks etc, i cant wait.

    I love it mate,very nice.

    I think this is why I asked you last time why you went for the 4X frame as I find my Hornet FR versatile.

    even if i had got the normal hornet first time around i probably would still of changed by now, i seem to be a serial bike buyer/builder lol and i had a real hankering for a steel hardcore hardtail 😛 i do think i will miss the 4x bike in the bike park though

    added the custom fork graphics now, fitted DMR vtwin spd pedals and swapped the bottle cage for the fabric cageless system , pretty much done just waiting on a top guide as i dropped the chain once at he weekend and want the security.

    also hit my first gap jump in 3 years on it at the weekend and first time over a gap on a hardtail ever 😀
