It’s actually super easy to service. As I traveled the fork from 170 to 150 I didn’t even take the fork off the bike. It was in a bike stand and there was no need to put in some new oil either. As you can take off the legs one by one, the “lower” leg service takes considerably less time.

I'd love to try the intend suspension, I'm always wary of not being able to get stuff fixed and serviced. I guess that's moved intend a bit hight up my list of things to try. (Opens wallet, moths fly out ) it's unlikely to be soon ☺️

It's actually been great. I've loved the extra range. Shifting isnt perfect, but it wasnt before even after replacing the hanger and messing with indexing for over an hour. The weight is insane for the price, and until I can afford full hg+ then I am gonna keep on getting ztto or sroad cassettes.

Good to know! Yeah the range and compatibility makes them an attractive option for sure. Glad to hear they actually work too!

Yeah... it does have a price tag that's not negligible. Then again, I don't have any other hobbies and a well paid job.

I think if you don't want to spent too much money, a Formula Selva Coil would be a very good choice. It's actually on par with the Edge (ignoring the better braking performance of the latter).

Noticed it has a lot of aluminum cogs, any wear issues on the upper cogs? Have you had it for a while?

I haven't had it for a while, but know people who have had it for a while. No issues for them.

My 8yr old's new Voodoo Nzumbi 26er.

Started out as a new stock bike. Stripped to bare frame and refinished in Audi Nardo Grey with custom graphics. THen rebuilt with upgraded parts including RS Reba RL's (650b versions), Superstar wide rims on V3 hubs with Muc-Off tubeless tape. Schwalbe tyres. Shimano Zee 10-speed with, SLX 11-36 cassette, Suntour 152mm cranks and 30t narrow-wide chainring. Deore 6100 brakes with floating rotors, Thomsen stem, Renthal Fatbars, Carbon inline post, Madison youth saddle and Wellgo KC001 pedals.

He absolutely loves it. It is now waaaaaay lighter than original and no longer fluro orange.

That yeti looks ace!
The BB looks low, how does it do on lumpy stuff?

It hasn't been in anything properly lumpy yet TBH, but it's better than the Whyte I had before in that regard. I was smacking the pedals multiple times per ride on that bike. 170mm cranks no doubt help too. I'm a short arse so the shorter crank works well for me.

I’ve almost bought this frame 3 times now, but keep hesitating due to sizing- I have heard they feel larger than the geo makes it seem.

How do you like it?
