Slaker did you get some riding time in on the Ti Rootdown? If yes, what's your feeling compared to your steel bikes?
Only two rides into the current Vendetta X3 but I find it much more stiff and a little more precise than my other steel HT. Kinda miss the compliance a bit. Pro and con.
For reference.

Oh gosh, I have been so close to getting a Kingdom ht in the recent past, I love the looks the Kingdoms over the Chromags, that looks great ! I have not rode my Ti rootdown yet, sent fork back to sram cause it had suck down issues out of the box so waiting to get it back... Ive ridden my Ti Switchback now for like 5 or 6 years alongside my steel bikes and just notice it being a bit more snappy, I look forward to seeing what the ti rootdown rides like when I get it on the trail.

Alright, bummer with the forks. Sorry, missed out on the Switchback when tiping the question. Thanks, looking forward for your thoughts on the Mag!

I would say in general steel will always be the most compliant material for a hardtail frame, I have never ridden a carbon hardtail though .

Damn close. Plans changed. Turns out the 160 Yari I picked up had a shafty air shaft. Luckily I had a brand new 130 butter cupper to toss in. And after cleaning all the muck off of it I discovered it is actually a lyrik. Since it got dropped down figured put gears on it and see how she goes. Still need a damn matchmaker clamp for the shifter and a front brake line clip for the fork... whaddyahgunnado
A quick driveway dickarlund makes me think this will be fun

Nice!
Do you think you‘ll notice a difference between a buttered shaft and a non-buttered shaft?

First the Queen dies, then I read that King Charles is ill. Ah, my mistake, he's the third.
