Nice, but you got any pictures of the FSR, used to be a favourite of mine years ago.

Lovely machine. Very Happy

Always wanted one but was too ruddy tight to fork out for one back then.

Went in the SALE at Bikescene in Guisborough and I dillied and dallied, should I, shouldn't I until they didn't have my size left and there weren't any left at Specialized distibutor. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Learn't my lesson and now just buy a bike when it takes my fancy. Laughing

Now swapped to 1X10, I need some new steel bolts as I managed to round one of the stock cheese ones...

So I was made an offer for my Ducati project that I couldn't refuse, this left me with a nice chunk of cash. Surely the most sensible option was to buy a load of shiney bits for the bike Wink

150mm Lyrik


Hope Pro4's on Stans Flow MK3 rims


Easton Haven Carbon 35mm bars and a Hope AM-FR Stem


I can't wait to get them fitted Very Happy

A Rockshox Revelation 140mm, it's a decent enough fork but compared to a Pike or especially a Lyrik its very flexy and tends to get hung up on repeated bumps.

Yeah its a 29er, some stick their noses up at them, I bloody love it though.

I can only imagine how plush it's going to feel with those forks fitted.
Love my 29'er too btw Wink

I managed to get the stumpy built up and out for a good blast today, the wheels and fork have transformed the bike. The front end feels so plush and holds its line so much better than before. The wheels, despite being a fair bit stronger than the originals are actually lighter. It accelerates much better and is noticeably better on the climbs too.
The bar and stem just make it a nicer place to be, overall I'm damn happy and it's money well spent!
