Started out with a Raleigh RX Comp five months ago but when the Stigmata Carbon was launched I had to make the change :D
Changed contact points but otherwise stock for now. I have a crankset change coming up and will get an additional set of wheels for road duties. There might be some silver polishing work in the horizon as well ;)

That's looks really good!! I've always been a fan of the bold colours Santa Cruz use on their mtbs and it looks great here too.

Wow, that looks ace! Get that you want to match finishing kit (rule 1.1!) but I think this needs a carbon post both aesthetically and technically. Did I say wow otherwise? Great looking!

Thanks guys! Really pleased with this one.
I will have to see what I do about a carbon post. Maybe for the road setup :)

Nice ride and weight for a Stigmata. What size rubber can it take?

I've had my eye on one of these. Carbon, through axles, discs, 'mountain bike pedigree' appeal to me, among other things. Di2 with some Enves would be my dream. Light-ish and solid. Did you buy it locally (Norway?), or online? I've been thinking about the best way to get my hands on one, so I could, maybe, get the ball rolling...

Got it straight from the Norwegian distributor. I'm an elite mtb racer backed by the same guy so that kind of made my decission :)

Road mode! The tires were the only ones I had in 25 mm, will get a black pair next time around. Handles great but I think I can go lower than 80-85 psi to get some more bounce.
