Nah Jim, I still got the Nerve, It was just getting a bit of a beating doing the DH (started doing way more than I had intended) so I wanted something just for that as I had already had my Nerve out of action due to DH abuse. :?

Yeah I have done 9 lifts this year already, the next one is booked on the 16th of June with a few others from the club if your up for it (8 spots left atm) were doing an uplift once a month usually the 3rd weekend, dates are posted on the forum. :D

Hey Man - how does the speedzone ride?
What DH bike would you compare it to in terms of ride position? I've just ordered one of these. Had a bounce on a trek session that felt awesome but obviously never got to feel the Canyon!

Please post some more pics outside of the house and maybe some videos!!

No clue, it just arrived today, I will let you know after the 16th when I get to uplift on it, I hope to get a few pushups between now and then but they will be set up rides only I would imagine.

+1 for a ride report when you've had a chance to thrash it at CC (I'm there on the 17th so pity I won't get a chance to see it in the metal).

Can see it now bike and eeeesh :shock: that's pretty. I really do think it would benefit from some Fox Vans single crowns, I'd be prepared to swap for the Boxxers, grudgingly of course :wink:

I'm a bit busy on the 16th (my wedding) but I'll def be booking up when I'm back, be nice to see that beast in the flesh

Nice! - i've got the 2011 version with 180Mmm out back. Am tempted to go for the new DH version.

What size did you go for, and how tall are you?

Just looked at your sig - I saw a load of lads from the Halfwayup club there a couple of Sundays back (20th). Looked like they knew what they were doing.

Forgot to say - bike looks the business BTW 8)
