        • A day in the pub kitchen. It was so hot my sweat started sweating. Only got to ride to and from work but did get treated to a BBQ ribeye from the wife after I finished. Although somehow I paid for it

          • Bike finally arrived today, exactly 2 weeks after the order was placed, so a little longer than their quoted 4-7 days!

            Bike looks perfect, it was well packaged so that nothing moved/rattled around, and had plenty of protective foam/cardboard wrap to stop rubbing. Even had one of those little mech guard things in the event the box got squashed.

            Already come up against my first issue though as the new RaceFace 32t NW chainring doesn't fit as it's 104mm BCD and the SRAM GXP cranks are direct mount, but with a spider that converts to 94mm BCD.

            Might as well drop the spider completely and go for a 32t direct mount chainring, but I can't tell which ones are boost compatible? Plus I really want a blue one...

                  Ooh yes I forgot to mention I bought that separately. I had an embarrassing moment though when I discovered the crank axles on my Stumpjumper weren't magnetic *facepalm*

                  So I've been holding onto it for the last 2 weeks hoping that this one has a magnetic axle, thankfully it does!

                  I know! I've since dropped it all the way to the bottom, had to pull a fair bit of cable back through the frame so it will probably need cutting down and bleeding now.

                  I came to the conclusion they deliberately put the seats really high to wedge the bike inside the box so it can't move up and down inside it.
