Lovely. I ordered a Nerve Am 7.0 on Friday. How did you find putting it together, was everything already set up OK (other than the suspension, I suppose).

Yeah everything was set up perfectly. Could have set it up in ten minutes, but took my time.
The only thing to specifically set up are the fork and shock, but obviously that's done by rider preference anyway

You should put a protective patch under the brake hose that runs past the fork crown. Mine rubbed away the paintwork in that exact same position.

Done that before I even set out up the drive :)

However, elsewhere I think Canyon have done an excellent job in the frame protection department

Recently added some Superstar grips. they wear easily but I think its worth it for the price.

Also, popped on a Reverb on tonight. Pictures (hopefully including snow) will follow tommorrow

Nice bike there.

Thinking of getting the 8 myself so interested in how you get on with it.
How's the sizing?

Sorry, for the lack of pictures, want to do it in daylight so am waiting...

Re sizing, I used the guide on the website and it was correct. I'm a medium and am 5'9/10"ish

Rides perfect after 6 months, not had to do much to it except bleed the brakes. They are Avid however..... I think they're the next upgrade
