what do you think of the E13? Dose it create any drag in th drivetrain like my Blackspire? That is the one remaining thing i am tempted to get before buying the new bike.
Do the forks feel much different than before?

The E13 seems really good, no drag yet but then time will tell if the bearings last.

Forks are much plusher, the small bump sensitivity is improved. i did think that i had to much air in them on the last ride so im taking a bit out.

I'v officially given up with my chainguide. Tried it again this evening and the bearing is so crap the roller won't even turn! It's going in the bin unless i can find an upgraded roller/bearings.

you were that quick with drag in the drivechain? Damn. Might have to add sand to your hubs to slow you down.

Na i took it off months ago. Seeing Russ's new one made me try mine out again, but the bearing in the pully is utter crap, so unless i can get a better pully with proper bearings it's in the dustbin!
