It's been faultless so far, The chain tension is much better and I barely notice its there. Worth buying.

Sorry about late reply Jamie, Yeah I'm still riding this bike. Give both a try and see which feels best to you. I mainly use it for commuting and some light to medium trails, Fine for everything I've done. Handling is great.

Hello, Dan

I have a VooDoo Bokor 29er that I am slowly personalising. Where did you buy your KCNC bolts?

Cheers

clee-cycles.co.uk Just search for KCNC mate there's loads of bits. There are cheaper alternative bolts you can get but I like the KCNC ones.

Post some pictures up dude

Thank you, Dan. I shall have a look at their website. In the meantime, here is a picture of my Bokor 29er, taken at the weekend.

Upgrades so far are Deore cranks and bottom bracket, Suntour Epicon forks (Radions are standard on the 29er), Shimano SPD/flats pedals, Truvativ AKA All Mountain 80mm stem, Truvativ T40 Stylo 25mm riser bar, Lizardskin Moab grips, Cane Creek Ergogrip II bar ends, Cane Creek Thudbuster ST seatpost, Charge Knife saddle and Maxxis Ikon tyres.

Still to come, Kore Durox rims and an FSA Orbit MX headset...

Looks good mate, How're the brakes? I really want to upgrade mine. Wouldn't mind new wheels and fork too but I'll have to see what happens lol.

If I end up buying new wheels, brakes and fork I wouldn't mind buying a nice titanium frame and putting top of the range parts on there and keeping this for bad weather and commuting.

The brakes are very good. I have had them on from when I bought the bike, so cannot compare with the ones that came with it, but the SLXs have great feel and suffer from no fade.

I am 6'3" and weigh 110 kilos, so need brakes that inspire confidence. These definitely do.

The other things that made a big difference are the Maxxis Ikon tyres. They are very fast, but have great grip. The 29er is a big bike and the front wheel tended to wash out on fast curves with the CSTs that came as standard. Whilst it can still happen with the Ikons, they are much better.

All I need to do now is improve my riding skills...

Hi, can I ask how tall you guys are for the 20" frame ? I'm on verge of buying this...I'm 6'2 but hoping the 20" frame should be ok.

Bikes being offered a few months old and having only been ridden a couple of times. Think it will be ideal for a first bike, commute to work + some weekend trails (in time !)

Quite excited !

Same situtation as when I get mine.

I'm about 6 ft 2 myself, Go to Halfords and see if you can try one for size?

Few little new bits. New front and rear Shimano Deore M596 brakes. Front and rear 180mm Hope floating rotors. Raceface crankset bought from here and a Lezyne Femto rear light. I think that's all...

Still wanting a new wheelset soon to cut more weight. Maybe new tyres too although they're working fine they're heavy...

Not changing them until I get a new wheelset because I doubt I'd feel the benefit anyway? That depends on how much of a difference I feel when I do change them :)

Really enjoying the bike, not had any problems really apart from my still not very good maintenance skills causing a few little niggles but nothing major at all.

Joined a group who do night rides every Monday and Thursday but the Monday is too pacey for me yet lol.

I'd love some new forks but I don't think it'd be worth it?
