 @Woody25 these are all legitimately great ideas. Especially if the head badge on the d'ohnut was an enamel pin-style Homer-eating-donut face

 it's nice to see more affordable bikes. But why would they not go with the 148mm standard rear dropout?? not like it would cost more... Guess you could get some good deals on older wheels

 To the dude I bumped into at Brechfa with the Bossnut last Wednesday. good to chat to you buddy. Thanks for all the compliments you threw at my (yellow) bike. The Bossnut is a pretty capable trail bike, luv it. Happy riding.

 Dude we've all been there - your fleeting biking friend I'm afraid as it was a week ago already it's probably too late. Best you can hope for is in a few years you'll catch a glimpse of a bossnut through a thickett and it will be gone. Maybe one day a Santa Cruz will pass you and you'll wonder, maybe that was the guy, my guy from that time, but the thought will pass as everything always does. Oh life. Next time we find ourselves casually nod at an oncoming biker, or watch a guy clear a gap, or stand behind a biker in a queue for coffee tell them. Tell them that you love them because it may be the only time together that you get.

 I have absolutely no need for one, my present bike does exactly the same job, and yet I still find myself hovering over the buy button just because it looks great and seems like a really good deal!

 I have one, its a sick bike for the price. Basically a nice Spesh P slope for half the cost and better features. Better tires, half-link chain, adjustable dropouts, chain tensioner, Crankworx ridden frame etc.

Shipped to the US in 5 days. GoOutdoors is supposed to get their international shipping going again...but I'm guessing it might not happen. Bummer for Calibre, they are doing well but their distributor is faffing it up. Hoping they get it worked out!

I paid 560$ for it, shipped. Which is great because you get some room to pickup a Circus Expert fork, Deathgrips, Diety highside bars, pedals and still be less than a grand.

Fwiw the Crowhawk isn't a bad DJ for the price. Comes with highrise bars iirc too.

 Here in Brazil a bike of this cost in the range of 3,500 euros .... the prices of bike in Brazil and very expensive ....

 Interesting... single pivot axle path despite the FSR patents having expired. Go ahead and put that pivot on the chainstay instead of the seatstay already.

 Would rather go for the cheapest Orbea Occam any day
  • 1 0
 So you’d rather pay £1000 more?
  • 1 0
 @HardingTrail: Yes I would, because, unfortunately, for a better looking, a better geometry and a better specced (and probably a better bulid quality) bike you have to pay more. Wouldn't you?

Occam is a great value bike. It costs less than some Asian-built aluminium frames.
