Will do however feel like I’ve been hit by a 10 ton heavy thing

I am also running with tube, a medusa maxxis winter spike type tyre up front as lack of choice in 26er tyres
Anyways!

It’s a sexy as f and rides tarmac like a dream
Figuring out whether the rigid 20mm steel forks are up for a bit of air time to landings after the brand said no they’re not intended for dj’ing

Oh well like DR Pepper says ... “



Nada ! ;-D

Anyone recommend a decent front Maxxis preferably street’ish/dirt tyre as have a crossmark out bk set up tubeless already

Obvs frame is blue ;-) ;-)
Such a fresh cool colour for this kinda ht

The Curtis runs so smooth especially harder you go.
Carbon seat post could do with another trim to say 350mm or less... :/

I’m not sure what happened to this fellow but he was making some lovely bikes at one time. I drooled over this full sus when it was first released a couple years ago and thought it deserved a spot here.

Very nice indeed.

The pivot location is interesting, I wonder how it rides.

Bit like a naked 5. A peeled orange.

What do you guys think about running carbon parts on a steel frame?

E.g. Handlebar and wheels.

Is that blasphemy? Or do carbon wheels and bars make sense to save weight, get good ride properties etc?

Steel wheels and steel bars or go home Razz

I don't see a problem with it - run what works best for you Wink

My Curtis AM7 has Carbon bars, wheels & saddle.
I think that steel bars & wheels are more suited on a Halfrauds bike these days! lol
