Only had time for a short tarmac ride, buti have been riding 29r for the last 5 years before all of the knobs got on baord :lol:


the set up is nice the bike was a large which was spot on though it did have a -15 stem which i would change to a -5 to lift me up. my Gary Fisher is a med so this had a more streched out cockpit for racing. I was told that you can change the head angle by moving a spacer


Nice kit

Crank OEM XO


XT shifters

Avid 9 brakes

Sun ringle hubs on ZTR Arch

lefte with remote loclout

Monach rear shock ( would swop for RP3)


WT 11.5kgs but did not feel this heavy. it was well weighted ( some bikes are heavey front or rear)


Price R53,500 which means they are charging a preminum on the overseas pricing!!!!! :( :( :( Still going to buy one

Oh well - I will wait and see what they say - hopefully Tread is one of them as I suscribe to it.
