    Nice, my 07 Columbus tubed Handjob was the most fun bike to ride that I've ever had, it was the ultimate hardtail for rough singletrack, was awesomely quick down hill. I didn't struggle to keep up with full sussers in the Peaks, it was just a tad wallowy up hill, but nothing you can't live with, enjoy.!
    What are they made from these days and what fork you sticking on it?

    Hmm, it's a bigger clamp and I've only got a set of narrow shims. Never mind.

    Had her out for an after work spin tonight and blast is the word. Climbs like a mountain goat descends like a stuka dive bomber and rips through twisty singletrack like she's on rails.
