First run out today.
Few tweeks to riding position etc.
Ride was awesome, soaked up the trails.
Still need to get the rear shock right, started of with 135psi and then put it upto 175. Sag is now 30% but it still seems to use all its got, o ring was right at the bottom at the end of the run's.

Only thing that's put a downer on it is the light scratches in the top tube from my trousers, didn't expect that to happen so easy, not a mark on my last bike.

Also Not 100% confident with the tyre's but conditions there today weren't the best. Might be in my head tho Rolling Eyes

Managed to get most of the scratches out of the top tube with a bit light abrasive polish.
Now protected with some vinyl. Had some grey stuff spare so that'll do for now then replace with black once that's worn.




Next decision is weather to change the front tyre.

Wasn't confident on it last week. On my previous bike I had a maxis minion DHF, this has more grip on the shoulders, these Han's Damph trial star are more rounded so thinking about changing to a magic mary DH.

Was all good until the pink grips went on Laughing they don't go with anything else on the bike.
