    I originally had my name on the 2014 Capra CF Pro, and that has the BOS shocks front and rear which I believe is plush as hell, but at the time the lead time was 4 months, and prior to completing the order there was quite a few comments on the forums re issues with the carbon cracking on them. So I cancelled. Which is probably just as well as that would have been WAY TOO MUCH bike for me. In all honesty, this one is more than enough bike for me really, though I hope it's a good skill compensator Looking forward to taking up to Glentress in a few weeks though.

    Mate of mine has a Yeti (SB66c), he says he can't see himself ever changing it, he loves it.

    Looking forward to the Yeti, was that or a Nomad as they ride nicely but cost a bomb. The Devilles barely need servicing which is nice and a major every couple of years. YT are a strong brand and make some nice gear. That will be a nice ride.

    This is what I am building.



    With this shock.



    with this crank.



    got let down by an online bike shop when buying a dozen items cos they couldn't source one of them. Should really have sent the rest and refunded cos they cannot get it till mid April. Bah.

    Thanks to BertRoot

    She looks a right beauty there Bert, mega spec.

    Hope this weather keeps improving as just starting to show signs of drying out (though I've yet to ride the Capra, opting to use my Whyte that I don't mind getting sh!t high).

    Nice. How wide are your Bars, 820? They look HUGE.
