That is truly gorgeous. I'll bet it's an extremely confidence inspiring ride too Very Happy Wouldn't like to be pedaling it around without SPD pedals though, flats are bad enough on my hardtail Exclamation

Dilbob just meant that the Session 8's have bad reviews to being fragile, not your bike mate. He was thinking of buying one a couple of weeks ago and think he's still got a soft spot for them. Very Happy

yeah has chopper said i was talking about there DH frames has like you said they made them v light and just wanted to know if they carried the same over across there range?

propblem wasnt in the rear triangle that im referring to, was in the downtube from stones and strikes and the top tube with a decent off and forks denting frames etc etc...

hope that cleared things up bud...

and chopper saw the post jase posted on sdh and its like 27% off now be rude not too....
