  • I test rode on that Strava ride few weeks back ............. a roadie. Not convinced.

    Did the same hill loop on Bluronce and was quicker, and more comfy Unless a Btwin 1200 comes up for 300 on sale.

    • Could never go full roadie

      cx seems like it could be a more useful comprimise

      and it's a new bike, that's always nice.

      • Went on a nice pootle in the quantocks today



        Dead woman's ditch. Weather bit boil in bag but a nice cooling drizzle was also present.



        Dayglo shroom spotted, even more orange IRL than in pic. Needless to say I didn't give it a lick

            • Radon Swoop 170 8.0 confirmed!!11!!!!!!1!!

              Should be here late this week or maybe early next week depending on how fast they dispatch it.

              Also just ordered a fresh set of Nukeproof Neutron Evo pedals in black and a pair of Maxxis Minions (3C compound up front and 60a on the back) to replace the stock Schwalbe tyres. I'm planning on fitting the Minions as soon as it arrives and just selling the Schwalbe's on eBay.

              Much excite!!!

              • You got a link to it again, the exact model ordered, specs etc?

                BEAST of a bike.

                  This is the exact model I bought, best value for money in the range IMO. http://www.radon-bikes.de/en/mountai.../swoop-170-80/

                  I would have loved the 10.0, but at nearly 800 more for lighter suspension and 1 extra gear I just couldn't justify it.

                              Yer I've got 10 speed GX on my Stumpjumper and it could do with being a bit beefier with the hammering I give it. My GX mech has only been on around 4 months and already needs new jockey wheels despite regular cleaning!

                              I think that suspension chip will be going into 'Park' mode and staying there, the review said as long as you can keep the pedals off the ground it's by far the best mode. And as I've learnt to keep my pedals up on the Stumpjumper, this should be no problem.

                              Bike Radar couldn't get enough of it, just said the tyres were crap (but I'm swapping those the second I get it out of the box anyway). Ooh and they picked up on the fact it doesn't have lockout on the rear shock, but as 90% of my riding is uplift anyway who cares!?

                              • Not sure lockout is even needed for climbing, Fox CTD climbs in trail perfectly, and even descent without noticing much, normally get to top O hill and notice i'm still in full plush. Hills good for fitness too so would be good to get her up some epic ones
