Absolutely loving this bike at the moment done everything from racing Downhill to 40 mile xc rides at a fast pace and not stopping, it's the nuts Smile

Thinking of getting one, that & some 29er hoops

What you running? Big hoops? Tried 27.5?

Fork decals are a miss.

That Doctahawk for me is just one big mismatch of numerous shades of Red & Gold.
What a shame! Could have been so nice.
9/10 for componentry but 3/10 for execution!

Matchy-matchy turned into clashy-clashy.

[PI=4/PI]

29 xc hopes we're wicked, super quick and came out at 28lbs

29er Kings on stans, keep it quick but a bit more able to handle the rough stuff and less worry about breaking wheels

Nice and snappy and manuaverable but still pedals well

27.5 I ran with two shortys so won't comment on that lol

At Chicksands, fair to say the cases were plenty... Might have been alright at Aston Hill.. I suspect with a longer fork and better rolling tyres it'd be pretty dope in 27.5 guise

However with the way the frame rides and how stiff and responsive it is to pedaling I think so far the 120mm 29er setup really highlights the frames pros and helps with the cons of such a frame.

I'm stoked it's the closest I've come so far to something I'd reckon you'd have a good chance on in an xc or dh race, for a hardtail that is. A generic and typical thing for someone to say but it genuinely is really good. You'll just have to get one to find out Razz

I want to get some 165mm cranks for my Big Wig. What are some budget choices? Anyone used DMR Axe cranks?
