Another newbie! :)
#1
Hi guys, just thought I'd drop in and say hello as a new boy! Smile

I'm actually the brother of another member from here, BennyP, and I've just ordered my new mountain bike to replace my 12 year old Marin Mount Vision! Here is the spec of my trusty new steed:-

Transition Bandit Frame, 2013 Fox Float 140 CTD 15 QR, Hope Pro2/Flow wheelset, XT Brakes, XT Shifter, XT Chainset, XT Front and Rear Mech, Reverb Seatpost, Fatbars, Thompson X4 Stem, Charge Spoon Saddle,
High Roller Tires.

Excited isn't the word!!  Hoping to have the bike built (from Biketart in Barham) and ready by next week for the Passportes du Soleil Alps trip!  I'm sure I'll be riding around Blean woods and Surrey Hills in the near future too!  8)

Good to have you along James!  Ben was raving about your new bike on Saturday - sounds awesome.  John's Bandit seemed to tick all the boxes in Wales - so sure to be perfect for the Alps...  Look forward to seeing you out & about soon Smile

Not questioning your spec... I am no genious   Tongue

But do Fox really believe that toggling between settings on a fork is really a good thing....  

Cracking bike and it will be nothing short of a revelation compared to the old Marin... enjoy

Welcome newbie Smile  I just want to say how completely not jealous I am of your Alps trip you guys are going on and I'll be MUCH happier trundling round Blean in the mud and filth.  Truth.

I shall see you about soon, no doubt  ;D
