Thanks. 61 feels about right for this reach and csl. I experimented with 63 to 59 on my last home build. 59 was still good, but it seemed to be diminishing returns below 61. At some point you have to make a call on how much side loading you want to put through your fork bushings. With a linkage fork i’d go a bit...more

Hey, no, none at all. In fact, this bike has been perfect for just over a year now.

Typically I visit Vital and PB every day. If there was a race on the weekend that I wasn't able to watch (and sometimes won't find time to watch for a week or more) then I avoid visiting Vital until I've seen the race because I've had results spoiled on this site in headlines and winning bike article...more

My fave is when Redbull puts the still image of the winners on their WC replay. I've intentionally not visited Vital or PB or got on instrgram simply to keep the winner of races I couldn't watch live a mystery then I pull up the Red Bull app and voila there was a still of the winners with a big Play...more

Edit for the out section:

People saying forks instead of fork.

Yeah, they stock them at my LBS Capital Cycles (here in Wellington , New Zealand) but it's the Shimano brand, so will be available everywhere.
It's this one:

Cheers! You're going to love this bike! I also have the SB150 that I use for the gnarlier races, but honestly, the 130 is a bit more fun, and seems to handle the same terrain no problem - those situations are just a bit more stable, and faster on the 150. Trail riding is really fun on the 130, and it's uphill performance is quite unreal - I'd ridden a demo for a few days before building this, and I'm blown away with how much better again this one is, with the light wheels and build kit that I love. I really think that the 130 is the one bike for everyone - you might never want for anything else!

Hey, it's a PRO alloy side cage. I usually use a Lezyne side entry cage - and I had one for this in lime green, but it looked a bit full-on after it was built, and this was all they had in the shop. Turns out it works really well! Can fit a full-sized 750ml bottle in there no problem - easy to get in and out. It wouldn't work on the sb150 - I have to use the Lezyne on that as a 750ml bottle has to be pushed-in from the side.
