can i ask a few more questions?

what sort of places have you ridden it?
how does it compare to other bikes that you've ridden?
what is the hadlebar width? and the seatpost diameter? (can't see either listed on the YTR site)


lots of places mainly in the south, i have had an outing to rogate dowhill which was fun, the bike managed it fine.
the bikes i have ridden are 100mm hardtail then a 140mm full sus and now this, comparing it to the 140mm it is a lot more capable on the downs and climbs just as well, setting up the suspension was more difficult then the 140mm but i have got there finally.
i believe the handlebar width is 785mm,don't know about the seatpost, i'll get the tape measure out tomorrow.
They offered to source a new barb to me but i had already sorted it by then,so they sent me a set of brake pads(the barb cost me less then a fiver the pads cost a lot more) so i'd say the they are keen to keep their customers happy.

Yup. It is at its max with the 36 cassette, but works fine.

cool beans, think I might just get an X9 mech rather than spend double on an X0 :?

I know, it'll look stupid without the red. Having said that I have seen a review of a red X9 mech but can only find grey for sale anywhere

Do the brake levers come the wrong way round? I assume they can be switched without hassle if they are

That's good then, I'm used to long hoses anyway as I run uncut hoses on my current bike.

Hi all, ordered mine a couple of weeks ago and still got to wait until end of November!
I've heard of reliability issues with the E13 XCX cranks working themselves loose quickly and often, did any of you experience that? wondering if an X0 crankset might be better?
