Cheers dude


Regarding the travel:

My colleagues and I had this discussion when I purchased the frame. I was adamant that it had 100mm travel while the website claimed 135mm (check the link in the for sale ad). We reached oit to the PM and a suspension engineer that designed the bike and they confirmed 135mm. Unelss all 3 are FOS, I'll stick to that number

Got a weight for it? Looks sick.

Reminds me think of all the sweet 4x bikes you used to see when it was part of the World Cups. Watched the Pro Tour last weekend at Fort William and there were only a few guys on full on 4x setups and most of those were very much 'real world' specs. A lot of the riders were on trail or even enduro bikes and there were some pretty retro rigs on the go.
