Thats not a bad wait for a custom beauty like that.. should be a fun stun gun

I guess it doesn't when you look at it objectively, but kinda feels like it's been forever lol

I would say it's pretty fast for a custom frame made by an one man workshop....

I don't know about Vibrocore but I can tell you that Renthal carbon fatbar is the thing!

Renthal and vibrocore are so 2019. This is where it's at:

At $425, I am probably better off put that money towards a better fork...

I absolutely concur. How much are those bolt on fork/shock tuning gadgets?

I think people mostly hire them, prices vary, but the bike shop at Coed y Brenin charges 25quid a day.

Gonna be getting something awesome quite soon.

Giddy with the anticipation but anxious with how the bike will fit. It'll be the longest bike I'd own/have ridden when it gets built up.

Built up last month

Shipping out this week

How long did it take them?

Quite a while - ordered 1st week of December and they're shipping it out this week.

That’s not to bad I ordered my full suspension from them in October didn’t get it till 2 weeks ago

That looks sharp!
If you have a scale I would love to hear frame weight as I am looking at getting one of these.

Nothing but praise online from diehard hardtailers, not heard one bad comment

JessE has owned two(?), he will surely pipe up at some point with some info

I wouldn't expect it to be light Wink
I forgot to weigh the frame alone, but my Marino rigid HT in the Reynolds tubing came out at 31.6lb...
Rides nicely though Smile

That's a ridiculously fun looking bike. Rigids are great. I just ordered my first aggro hardtail and I think I'm more excited to ride it than my full sus right now.

This rocky mountain geo looks spot on.

That looks superb!
In that colourway? That is a great colour combo, somewhat retro! Big Grin

The rigid was a bit of a shock TBH - hadn't really ridden one since my early teens, and in the subsequent 25 years it turns out I've got less flexible and notice how much more of a beating it is on the arms etc lol
Definitely fun though, and really forces you to work on technique even compared to a HT.

Grats on the new ride. HTs are superb fun - bought my first ever fully a couple of years ago and I like it but my HTs still get by far the most love.
