I forgot how hard a HT is. My new ht rocks and fits, bnut hurts.
a) SS is pretty cool. No wussing out, if you can't do it you walk, if you can do it...it hurts. My legs are pumped like they used to get when I was a gym rat. This bike is definately staying SS. I can also say I will never ever build a trail bike SS. You need to be some kind of man beast to ride a really tech trail SS.
b) djers are stiffer than they used to be. Back in the day they were plush like other marzx forks. This thing might as well be a rigid. 5 ft drops and 2 days of djing and I still only go through 3in of travel.
c) I love steel. Feels real nice. And the geometry suits what I wanted (I was able to do a backhop...and a small manual pretty easily)
d)...how do you bunny hop a rigid again? haha
Anyways just a small rant. This bike is gonna be some fun and hopefully help me get ready for next dh season Cheers.
