Are they the sixpack 785.? on propains website they say they are 18mm rise
Mine are blue on my bike, they are also 31.8
I have a large so the reach is long, the low bars are pushing me over the front on steep stuff.
Thinking of changing them myself to 35mm bars and maybe 30mm rise, it means replacing the stem as well though. I'm in two minds weather to get a shorter stem as well.
I have 35mm rise bars on my old bike, 740 wide and they feel comfortable.

mine came with the millennium stem 35mm long and 35mm diameter.
The bar just says Millenium - they look like 200mm rise.

Has anybody received their missing parts yet..?

I'm struggling with the bars they sent me, they are way too low rise. I'm not sure weather to just buy a stem and bars.

Yes I just received , 2 Months after my Saddle (I just send them a query about where is my saddle, and 4 days after I received it).

then my build is now over Smile , I also replaced the sixpack cockpit by a renthal cockpit, full black, love it Smile

Your bike is looking sweet..! I gave in and ordered a renthal cockpit today from CRC, I went with the 33mm stem and 760 bars also in black, can't wait to get it now.

She's a beauty mate, dare I say it but its the best one ive seen yet..!
What are the brakes like..? I'm going to upgrade mine next year, I have the sram G2 on my spindrift due to budget at the time, they are not good. I own a set of guide r and guide rs and I think the G2 feel worse. Maybe they need a bleed but surely not being new

Well you can never be sure that after installation and hose shortening they did a proper bleed.

For the cockpit setup: I run a 40mm riser and and 40mm stem on my L Tyee. (And 12,5mm spacers below the stem). With my body build and height of 6ft this places the saddle and handlebar at the same height. So rather normal height for the handlebar.

I put a dyed bro on mine, its just the clear gloss kit, its pretty good so far. You can't really tell its on the frame.

Oh yeah nice I do like their graphics they do but I don't want to cover up the spindrift logo on the top tube , I will look into the clear one

I put Slicy Sublimistick Ultimate (mat) on mine. It's a clear one, but even then I left the Spindrift logo on the toptube uncovered ;-)
What's the chance of getting a scratch there, ha!

Yeh they do some good graphics, but I was the same as you I didn't want to cover the bike in them.
I went over my spindrift logo with mine but the logo is still visible I would add a photo but I have no idea how to.

Cheers mate, 100% recommend Hope V4s, great brakes, not the most powerful, but more than enough and fantastic lever feel!

Well f*ck my o-zone! Thats really nice dude.

Who did you order the rainbow bolts from? specifically the rotor bolts and the post mount caliper bolts?

Have a Propain Rage CF that I got a crash replacement front triangle a while ago and just getting round to building it back up. Have went with a couple subtle splashes of ano purple but feel rainbow rotor bolts will be a nice finishing touch.

When the 2021 Rage is released its gonna be very tempting but I'm worried there wont be a 27.5" version. Next best thing would be a 2021 Spindrift with boxxers

Out of curiosity, what height are you and how does the size Large mullet feel fit wise?
