@Hoboinalambo: How on earth did you manage to photograph a Drop Bear without being attacked?

Calibre is a pretty good bike but like others have said it's worth scanning for secondhand bargains. Also if c2w is available it'll give you a bit more budget to play with and you won't have to splash out all your cash. Finance as well if you can control yourself to not borrow thousands........

Good luck

And just another question, if it said that recommendation fork travel is 130 mm can i put 140 or even 150?

The word is +- 20mm in fork travel is safe, but depending on frame maker may not be covered under warranty.

Also, check out NS Surge.

Hi all just joint the feed here. I'm starting up my full hardtail season as the snow melt here in canada. I got one of those 2.8 tire on my hardtail, just came back from a ride and I had conscern for the strengh of my wheel set. To accommodate big tire the industry wide up the internal width of rims. I have the durock 50. My question to you hardcore hardtail rider is as the rim get wider, does it weaken it? For exemple if I drop a 5 foot gap and land on flat, wich wheel will have the less deflection? If you ride with one of those wide rim let me know if they hold good. Cheers

There’s a thousand factors that will determine whether your wheel will hold up. The width has little to do with it. Things like tire durometer, who and how the wheel was built, and air pressure are all factors. However, the biggest factor of whether or not your bike will handle anything- is you. If you are an inexperienced rider and lack bike control, then throwing yourself off of a five foot drop could potentially ravage your bike. If you’re an experienced rider and your bike is setup properly, then it shouldn’t be an issue. Work on bike control, manuals, jumps, and whips. Those are all little things that will allow you to get used to utilizing your front suspension and learning how and where to put that rear tire on a landing.

I just finished building this up. Pretty pumped to try it out, but the rain isn’t on my side

Looks great! tup Just remember, you're not made of sugar, you won't melt in the rain! lol Enjoy!!!

Lol hes probably not worried about melting in the rain as much as hes worried about the lynching if hes caught riding wet trails. It seems to be a huge no-no to ride in the wet here. Basically if you do it you're going straight to mtbers hell lol
