How do you rate the wheels? Do they support the tyres well? Nice looking bike btw :)

Wheels and tyres have been excellent, must stiffer since converting to 15qr and 142x12 though.

Light and strong (just not cheap)

I wonder if SurfMatt has one of these... obviously it would be the 335d version with more torque.

Seen one of these in the 'flesh', so to speak. A great looking bike, and better value than last years, by a country mile. Without doubt, it's the old BMW M series colours :D

Just to say, it's without doubt the best bike I've ever ridden.

Pedals well uphill ,great on welsh trails, epic downhill. The MOST complete bike I've ever known!!!

Hey,
516 2012 had a problem with shock where it was really easy to blow through the travel and back end was hitting seatpost frame. It could be partially addressed by having 250psi, but small bump sensitivity was completely gone.
Is it still the case? Also are the stock wheels feeling flexy?

I used to have sorted 316 2011 and now thinking of either 516 2013 or Meta SX 2013 ( they both available at the same price to me ) and I feel bit puzzled.

The 'stock' wheels were taken straight off and crossmax st's fitted so can't say.

As far as the shock goes I've used the fox ird app to set up sag etc and it seems fine, not done any massive drops (up to about 3ft to transition) and performs very nicely.

I've made small upgrades to my 516 2013 , Rubber Queen 2.2 UST both front and back plus the bash guard.

I took it to Swinley Today and rode on red route and in the gully.
I must say I'm very impressed with how much more flickable it is compared to my previous 316 2011.
I think that 1,5kg weight is making miracles.

Note on front fork dive, I couldn't feel any neither in descent or trail mode.

Very happy with the purchase. I only wish I could afford carbon version.
