Well Robin (Motaro) Your not lucky with delivery times eh??

Had to wait weeks for your brakes, now 2 weeks again for the crankset...

But still a nice bike.

Ooh and don't brake this crankset :lol:

Still, looking good Motaro!

Here's a silly question... How do you have your computer mounted to the stem? Is it just zip tied?

Looking at your spec-list - you still have lots of weight to save :-)

New wheelset - savings at least 100 grams,
New handlebars - savings about 30 grams,
New seat - savings about 30 grams,
New headset - if Extralite makes one to fit savings about 20-30 grams.

+ new crankset - that's almost 400 grams!


weels set+ seat are new so thy i wil use for time

handlebar and seatpost wil come from schmoke

headset looks nice from Extralite

Sweet Ride Motaro. How does the RC39 compaire with the SID WC in terms of stiffness and function? Is the RC39 more plush than the SID?

Nice saddle also. I was thinking about getting the C64 but I was concerned it might break too easily. Let us know how you get on with it.


rc39 is stiffer then SID WC and if you ride RC39 its feel litel like my F100 RL

You would need more stiffness in fork wheelset stem and tyres to have a serious mountain bike for heavy use.

But this is a very light equipment and a very nice bike. Congratulations i love it.

Motaro, what about the geometry of your Epic with the Sid. The frame has been designed for higher forks, like Fox's or Reba's.

Is it a problem? What about the feeling with the bike in technical downhills?

Thanks.
