This one was stolen a week ago, from Hebden Bridge. Frown

Yup and surfaced on a selling site along with the Santa Cruz. Despite a contact number the police apparently don't have enough evidence to search the premises!

Just finished building this up. Last gen Cotic BFe with most of the parts from my Propain plus some new wheels and 11sp XT.Amazing that I'm OK on it being 6'5" tall and this being so small for a large.

Yeah I looked at the figures for that and it looks too long for me. This fit fine for length and reach it’s just got a short seat tube so looks a touch too small for me.

My '18 gen5 was a large, but is now somewhere between the medium and large in the 2020 range. My friend rode a Large at Steel is Real, they are enormous!

I definitely don't think huge bikes are for every trail. Lately I've been thinking that my trails suit a bike that goes up like an MTB and down like a dirt jumper, haha. There's just a very different way to ride my flowing, poppy, smooth-ish, valley trails with all their short punchy up and downs compared to mountain rides with longer drawn out climbs and steeper faster lumpier descents. I'd prefer the latter, but till then, I don't have any desire to super long local trails. 465 reach on my large hardtail feels super playful with short stays and bigger bikes don't add to the fun. If I moved I'd want something different, most-likely .
