    fantastically vague.
    there’s no point in saying there’s been changes without saying what they were and why they were needed!

  2. TimBud

    ^^^ yep. All we know is that it suits Reids riding style better than the last one.
    Slackened/lowered/lightened/strengthened…? Still looks pretty stunning.
    oh, new headset. 😉

    Those glasses must be annoying to see through. I heard somewhere that he just ran a longer front end with the same shorter rear end, which is the first thing that I thought of doing. Give me an XL front and a Sm rear and I’d be stoked. Polished for light weight?

    yeah bit of a random vid that, still bike looks nice, like the polished finish.

    well he did tell us that the bike went to his mate douggies’ house, good to know! maybe that’s the change??? other than a different head set and some new bars, he didn’t actually tell us anything about this “new frame”! fairly pointless vid.

    So if these new tweeks make it more stable then are stock ones unstable?

    that bike made my own 2012 100 list

  8. Adders

    Guys, didn’t you hear? He’s got new bars!

  9. Scrub

    His chainring is bent or he forgot a washerduring installation, his rear brake drags too much, and whats up with the guy(Dougie?) in boots and boardshorts in the pic. lol
