I was fairly certain that the tranny was for 120mm forks max, otherwise it'd be like riding a chopper :? The tranny is a great bike, but for what I want it's a little to compromised in certain areas, the fork length being the key one, but I'm also not too keen on the whole bolt on rear end thing, too much to go wrong with that and possibly wrecking a frame putting on forks that are too long, although I dare say that they'll have time to make a frame that fits my hardtail needs, I won't be making another purchase like this for a while :lol: having said that, they do take they're time testing stuff, they're making a 29er fs bike that's already been in development for 2 and a half years and they expect prototypes to be ready for eurobike in September, so I won't hold my breath :lol:

Looking very nice but I think you need more green bits to match your lovely pedals.
Still ,I'm a big fan. 8)

thanks john :D im recovering funds for abit, then she'll be green bolted out and tricked out 8) ive got a long list of little things to change, so im on the look out for green bolts for the stem, brakes and the shock mounts and pivot bolts, or maybe just plain old ti, but green bolts is the next place to go i think, along with green jockey wheels, green stickers for the forks, then i think that'll be about it :lol:

weekend at dalby completed, so here goes the review :lol:

the biggest difference over my previous bikes was definitely how this descends and jumps, its incredibly well balanced and requires very little effort to pop off drops or jumps and hop over rocks on quicker sections, the bolt thru axles front and rear are rock solid and the bike holds a line really well, very much a point and shoot bike, and sucks up bumps incredibly well, even better now ive fiddled with the forks abit and got them in quite a decent sweetspot, 65psi and 2 clicks of low speed compression and all the harshness and lack of suppleness i felt with them as they were before was gone and they dont dive around all over the place either, and they worked faultlessly reliability wise too, my revs used to get abit wayward after a long day thrashing about. the RP23 is undoubtly the best air shock on the market imo, having ridden the rockshox monarch on a few demo bikes, the Fox is far better imo, it doesnt wallow in the mid stroke and blow through the travel, and the rear end ramps up nicely towards the end of the stroke to take out the sting from drops, really impressive stuff from Fox.

going from a hardtail to my first full bouncer i was abit worried about how it would climb, but i really do think that the dw-link is arguably the best design around. its very supple yet also firm when you put the power in, and you only really need the propedal to dial out the bob when youre really pushing out the saddle on long steep climbs. on technical climbs its really easy to hop the back wheel over obstacles and has abit of a "stop/start" feel to it, other fs bikes ive ridden have felt abit dead in when climbing technical trails, but the mojo is verydirect and active ride, which im loving, it constantly demands to pushed harder, even to the point of falling off as you push the limit (well my limits anyway) :lol:

all the components have been faultless so, other than the spokes coming slightly loose after the first ride, just solid fantastic working reliability, the xt drivetrain is super smooth, the kcnc bars and stem are fantastic, and the hope stuff is just brilliant, couldnt be happier with the alll the kit i chose :D

overall im rediculously happy with it, by far and away the best bike ive ever ridden and perfect for my riding style, recieved my green crest stickers from greygoose whilst i was away, so for now its absolutely perfect 8) :D

that's so so good but personally, I'd stick a reverb on it.

Mrfmilo, I wish I worked for ibis, for one I wouldn't be on a maxlight for a second bike if I was, I'd get a tranny, and two it would have saved my wallet :lol:

Getonyourbike, I thought about one, but tbh I never really feel the need to use one, if I bought a bike that had one fitted as standard, or any adjustable post for that matter, of course I'd use it, but I'm not rushing out to get one as 90% of the time I probably wouldn't feel the real benefit, although having said that, the new fox doss post looks pretty cool, so I might go for one of those in future

How are the wheels holding up?
I still havent decided whether crests will be strong enough for my riding or whether I should get the arch instead.

Thanks

The wheels are fantastic, I've absolutely hammered them recently and they're still straight and true. They give the tyres a great profile and built up as I have, they make a very light but stiff wheelset, more than capable of some sized drop offs and jumps and didn't even flinch at a few dodgy landings and rock strikes at the weekend, can't recommend them enough!!

More than a year ago I went for ZTR Arch wheels on my Hardtail, they're still ROCK solid!

possibly true, but having never had a dropper post before, i figured id get one used and see how i got on, rather than splash nearly 300 quid on a reverb, plus i like most of my stuff to match, so if was gonna spend some serious cash on one, id get the fox one to match the forks and shock :lol:

no idea where bishops castle is, anywhere near coventry? :lol:

He's right you know. Without a remote it's pointless and only serves to add weight. You need a remote.

Stop being so ghey and buy a remote.

Do it now

NOW I say!
