Chris.


I bought them second hand from Emil Lindgren, swedish pro for Rabonank/Giant. 250euro for the pair:) It feels very light and fast, also stiffnes is good. But the tires sucks in wet against my old stansed 2,25 rocket ron:(
I think a couple of 52mm dugast is better.
On sunday its time fore race will se how it feels then

Thanks for a response. At that price I would give them a try as well. Post your thoughts after a race then. Hopefully with Dugast tires :)

For the winter the bike will go to level 2. Iam thinking of XX1 components, new lighter stem and wider bar.
The Rock Shox Sid will be painted in same color as the rigid fork.
And new tires, dugast 52mm i dont like the grip on tufo. But light;-)

I LOVE YOUR BIKE !!!!!

I have this frame and I want to do the same with a chainguide. But what's your chainguide ? It's a type-E ? You can put this system with the PressFit BB30 ?
Sorry, I haven't a lot of knowledges with this kind of system ( with English too :roll: ) !

Thx guys, fun that u like the bikes :beerchug:

>>>Sleddogs, its a s3 version that is moddified to fit direct into the frame. I have used the hole that holds the chaincatcher. Hard to explain :)
It works fine but a little bit risky :P thats why i want the new XX1

Now i also got a new toy to try out :P
A Scott Spark Premium. Its like drive a bulldozer compared to my Scale. Not as fun but safe.
I will use it for some distance races, but for fast XC race the 26inch wheels rocks :thumbup:

Thanks !

I'm going to try to do something as good as you... :wink:
An other question (again :smartass: ), you use a XO crankset... It's a downhill model or a normal without the little chainring ? Why don't use the XX crankset ??

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm really fan and I want to know all about your bike !!
