Trust me, it works very well in the 2.35 version. They get amazing grip, and very little drag.

I am anti camel back they make your back uncomfortable and are easy to get a fungal growth in. Bottles FTW (that mud on the caps good for you ^ ^).

The fungi is good for you too then At least it's just fungi, not mud (or poop).

If you get a decent bag for the camelback it is a lot more comfortable.

The newer camelbak bladders have antifungal stuff in them which has kept month old water and lime cordial (vaguely) drinkable.

Guys I have a question.

One of our houses is rented out, and has been for sometimes, until last week when they left. But they have left behind 6 bikes, most rusty as they have been out in the rain for god knows how long...

Is there anything I can do with them? Would the wheels be alright to put my other set of MB grips on etc?

i'm sure they'd be usable for short-haul beater bikes. i can't say more than that with the level of detail in your post.

A pub bike is a useful thing to have. Something that you can ride to the pub, throw a cheapass lock on cos nobody's going to want to nick it, and not worry too much about if you forget where you locked it after a few too many

I've got one that cost me a grand total of 6, and that was only to put vaguely working brake pads on. Most of the rest was given to be for free, and a back wheel I scrounged from the dump

Well I treated myself the other day and took the plunge on a new bike:







Can't say a bad thing about it so far, absolutey perfect and lighter than my Titanium hard tail also very impressed with the lockout on the 120 RLCs and the propedal setting on the RP23, both are far far better than I imagined they would be!

Nice.

Propedal is great isn't it! I have lockout on the front and propedal on the back so it can be pretty nifty uphill.

Indeed it is! I'm finding myself blasting up hills in the high gears that i used to have to granny gear on my old hard tail!

Kinda interesting with the euro brake setup though, left = front, right = back... usually involves me using the back, locking it up and sliding a little, realising then jamming on front as i've lost too much distance already and having a lot of suspension dive from jamming on the front hehe. That could also be because i've been messing with the low speed compression and rebound on the fork though

I should really bleed/swap them but I don't have a kit handy and it isn't *that* hard to get used to.

Swapping them shouldn't involve a bleed... except I've just noticed you're running what looks like XTR all-in-ones. Never mind.

Damn shiny, btw

Pro pedal is a must for going up hills efficiently on a soft tail.

Congrats on the purchase! Glad you like it (my opinion not completely full of noobness!)

I'm still yet to take my bike on any decent trails (gf only gets her bike in 3 or 4 weeks ), but after then we're hopefully heading to an area of the country called 'Little Switzerland' - hopefully named after the hills!
