8/10 not a marzocchi fan after my rocco blew up, but for some reason i think they look really good on norco frames! could use a little more colour imo

not getting a bash on mine, i like my e13 chainring on show Razz plus there are no rocks where i ride really and im a sad weight weenie type

Yeah, what I'm talking about is the same setup as I have: https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/5993688/ Or the more expensive LG1+ which wheighs next to nothing.

i just got one from superstar, like an lg1 without the taco, for £35.00 in the sale. pretty pleased Smile

will also tinker with my chainline to see if i can put a short cage on the xt shadow, i cant atm without moving the 5 speed casette further along the freehub body. hard to explain unless youve taken a few mechs apart and realise the shadow cage is different to give more clearance and a regular one wont fit; as it hits the mech stopping it moving to the smallest cogs. if i move the cassette this stops being an issue as the mech doesnt need to go into that range of its movement.

Sorry!

The Commencal is a pretty bike, I'd give it an 8.5 out of 10, becuase I'm not a fan of black rims, or the all black Marzocchi fork. I'm sure then might ride perfectly, but in terms of looks, they hold the bike back.

Thats a nice transition there man, lovin' the yellow. 9/10.
Heres my ride. Kona Stinky 08 which has had over £500 of upgrades recently and it's going a lot better than the stock version!!!
cheers Big Grin
