I love the shape of the Oddity - it looks really well proportioned.

Pretty cool, but very aptly named.
The seat tube troubles me a little, it looks more like it has been crushed rather than curved.

Well got it out on a snowy ride and it feels so good. Unfortunately it was on a road a short single track due to time limitations. I am hoping that I can get out this weekend if time permits for a proper ride. One of my usual quick loops, connector and Rocky screech in the Crawford riding area in Kelowna.

It's one that I know quite well and will be able to get a good feel coming off an older giant reign x 26er.

Built it up on as much of a budget as possible as I originally wasn't planing on buying a whole new frame set from Ferrum but it was too good of a deal. So the rest of the parts are about as budget as you can get. Had to pretty mich beg, borrow and steal parts off the old bike to get it completed. But it rides super nice and can't wait to get it out on a proper trail.

Weight as it stands is 37 lbs of steel and AL goodness.

Ferrum Bikes NV 145

Another Ferrum Bikes frame checking in!

I saw the new Moxie full suspension in the flesh yesterday. It was the longer version. I had a little spin on it and it felt really well proportioned. The guy asked me not to take any photos, but it's due for release in April. Looks banger, more refined than the Starling or Marino frames in my opinion.

Does anyone here own a Marino full sus? Are the bearings decent quality and how heavy is it compared to other bikes?

Do you know roughly what it weighs and what size it is? I am seriously considering one if it isn't like 35+ lbs.
