Some of you might have heard I was working on a little project, well here it is in all it's glory.

I know, I know, not another 575! Sorry, couldn't resist.

However, the twist that not many will have at the mo is that front fork - Talas 32 RLC QR15. That dictated Hope Pro II hubs which are built with Mavic 819XM rims as you can see.

Clearly this is more of a play bike than a weight weenie XC weapon. Although that said, it fair ripped up the Dam this arvo! Laughing out loud

P.S. Apologies for sort of stealing the 'pose' from another nice photo seen recently. Imitation best form of flattery and all that. Eye-wink

So whats the verdict on the QR15 axles? Is it as rigid as your beloved lefty?

But yes you sure were setting a cracking pace on it's first outing. Caused me yet more skin loss trying to keep up Sticking out tongue Maybe we should stay below 15kmh Smiling

Nice colour I must say. Weight weenie or not, what does it weigh in at?

Are you going to use it sometime and join a scum ride? Evil

Well - the good news is I now have a pass for the new office which lets me into the basement so at least can start commuting again.

Rob,

Why didn't you buy the new Bainchi Downhill bike. I saw some vision of John-Lee Augustyn attacking some mountain in France and his bike is super light and virtually was unstoppable down the rough shale covered slopes.

Well, it does say:
