Great Bike mate. I had a Alu version from a local shop to test for a few days, and overall like it, great frame and geo. Still not a fan of the Brain shock, although its much improved over the 09 version.

A. wow, very, very nice
B. the 2010 brain is suposed to be awsome, it uses a hydralic motion sensor to see when the back wheel is moving, so that the sus is only active when the wheel is moving rather than the main triangle. am i right?
C. i dont get why they spec a QR fork on a 160mm AM bike!?!?!?
I like bikes and stuff

it has the dt rws skewer which is as stiff as 15mm, but lighter and cheaper. ive got one and having done back to back tests with my forks with RWS and a fox float 140 15mm i reckon the rws is actually stiffer

joshtp/mbukman I don't pretend to understand how the Brain works :lol: but from my limited tests so far, it works very well. Previous versions I know have been a bit "slow" to react to the change in terrain and didn't do a great job of taking out the bob.

I can have this turned on fully, and its like riding a HT, ride over a kerb however, and it'll depress as you'd want it to, clever stuff

As for the QR, I know no different, its more than adequate for my riding...(p.s its Fox Talas , up to 140mm travel)

Thanks for the comments :D I'm struggling to keep the wallet in the pocket rather than getting myself some Redwin bits (shifters, Noir Crank etc)...I'm keeping the bling demons at bay so far

I've just ordered one from my LBS. Can't wait. Did you know you get £300 worth of free kit with this bike?

Yeah I did, but I had all the kit I needed already to be honest, so I got the 10% of the price instead so paid £2700.

The guy in the shop was trying to tempt me with some V12's and a command post but valued the money off more :lol:

sitting here dribbling. that is stunning!

Is this brain bit you've been mentioning the bit by the rear brake which looks like a rear sus?

When funds allow I'm sure I'll end up getting a few bits but need to wait for bank balance to recover for a while first so I'm just riding it :lol:

Quite fancying an XTR or Noir crankset and some X0 shifters (redwin to match the rear mech) that kind of thing, then I'll see what comes next

Nice looking bike, i've got the 2010 Stumpy expert, couldn't trust my self with carbon on the rocks in the peak disrtict, one thing i'd do is while it's new, change out the red nipples for DT brass ones as the snap very easy, only add a little weight but they'l stay straight and tight, binned mine eventualy for Hope Pro 2s and mavic's

Enjoy it, looks like your getting straight into it.

Having buckled my front wheel recently in a fall, I started looking for a replacement but decided to treat myself to a new set...

Hope Pro 2 hubs
Stans ZTR Flow rims
DT Revolution spokes

Also got myself an SRAM PG990 Redwin cassette whilst I was there

:lol: Yeah I just noticed that reading what I'd written back to myself.

Doh !

Tried getting my Rubber Queens on the rims yesterday, nearly broke my fingers trying...Gave up in the end and put some Verticals on for now instead

Nice one!

I was looking at ZTR rims as well for my Stumpy.... decided to go with Easton Haven Carbons instead.

Cost a bomb but loving them to bits!!
