Front details..

Sensus grips from Rider Run Company are my grips of choice these days, you dont have to run gloves and they just feel right, slim,long and soft, killer product, hit up rider run co,
690mm wide bars just seem on the money for me, be it xc racing or out in the hills on my rumble hitting more all-mtn style lines, Fitted a THE shroud for the winter/early spring riding since we have been hitting up more natural trails of late what are still very muddy here on exmoor and around east devon.
Marzocchi 44 Micro Ti QR15 fork are up front and have just changed the way the bike rides in such a big way, By far the best all-mtn/ trail fork on the market.
(tech spec)
150mm Travel
TST Micro (Lock Out, Micro Adjust Compression Threshold, Rebound)
AER: Air Preload (Titanium Negative Spring), Volume Adjust
Alloy XC Steer Tube & Crown
32mm Nickel Coated Alloy Tapered Stanchions
New fitted and slotted bushing
Post Mount (Max Disc 203mm)
15mm quick release axl .
Onza Porc 2 tyres are on the crankbro wheels front and back, these retro rubbers are super low weight at just over 600grams yet fit what a all-mtn tyre of today needs to do, shame they dont make them anymore and at some point im going to have to run some other treads..
