    Needs fatter tyres

    It really does and if set up tubeless should feel a lot different..

    This has replaced the transition for road / off road duties. It needs a new wheelset, new tyres, cassette and some new bars (maybe)

    It sits at 10kg flat with pedals and bottle cage which isn't too bad I don't think...not for a frame that weighs 2.4kg

    New wheels n tyres set up tubeless should loose some weight but I feel weightless on this is a loosing battle as the frame is a tank...maybe I should get something alu?! Niner Rlt9 would be nice again...I miss that bike.

    Bought this a while ago as I've always wanted one and the price wasn't too bad.

    Overall I love how it it looks, it's got a very good stance and the proportions look just right.

    It rides okay too, however it seems to roll a bit worse than my transition rapture did with exactly the same parts...its kind of like the drivetrain is thicker, like it's stuck in mud or thick grease. Which is very odd as everything felt fine when I took it off the rapture. It could be the tyre tho tbf, I swapped them out for gravel kings as they had a few too many holes in.

    Oh and the frame is 400grams heavier than the transition which is only double butted 4130 tubing...so there's some food for thought.
