thanks.

the revs are 32mm but rockshox 32s are not as noodley as fox 32s more comparable to fox34s in stiffness. they are perfect for what i need them for and lighter than pikes .

i got them for a bargain price, they had just had a warranty service by sram and had new uppers, steerer and upgraded rct3 damper , the guy i got them from upgraded to a fox 36. Very Happy

Ridiculously over priced IMO Confused ... the RCT3 pike at half the price takes some beating Wink

Have you given the new rig some stick yet ? Twisted Evil

i've taken it over to Thetford a couple of times to dial it in but that is the flattest trail centre on earth so not a real test . i also took it around the local technical xc course in the dark which was brilliant fun, so far its proving to be everything i expected and more, such a smooth ride.

hopefully i will be able to get to chicksands this weekend and try it out in the bike park on the dual slalom, 4x and pump tracks etc, i cant wait.

I love it mate,very nice.
I think this is why I asked you last time why you went for the 4X frame as I find my Hornet FR versatile.

even if i had got the normal hornet first time around i probably would still of changed by now, i seem to be a serial bike buyer/builder lol and i had a real hankering for a steel hardcore hardtail Razz i do think i will miss the 4x bike in the bike park though
