Excellent! Good packing job also.
They've probably only sold 2 copies of the frames though. Do a poll here and of those who have frames see how many have givi. I bet it's probably tiny.
Thrash testing new boingers.
I found the limits of my fitness trying to hustle the big girl through the tight stuff long before I found the bottom of that 280mm. I did find it eventually on a whoop face with a 6” diameter root running across it square edge style, but I had dialed it back a couple notches after I was breathing through my eyelids with instant arm pump.
So far so good. I still have a little more work to do feeling it out, but I think I can move pretty swiftly on this stuff once I settle in and get used to it.
You da man!
what did you do to suspension?
He drank the George juice
Sprung, valved, and stretched the stock stuff as reasonably priced as possible (read: without too much custom machining)
I will elaborate when I come to a final conclusion. (After a couple more rides)
Mistakes were made.... I had an ambitious day of poor decisions and I forgot my ropes kit.
I need to work on my throttle finesse.
That's sig line material right there.
As long as the day ends in "having a beer while looking at what you did to your bike", it was a good day
I’ve noticed it. I don’t think it’s a problem at all. I bought a luggage rack, not a roll cage for the rear of the bike. It doesn’t matter to me if the exhaust gets dinged because the rack isn’t there, or because the rack flexed in to it.
The cross brace connection is the same as the other 3 mount points. It’s no less solid.
Given that many hard pannier systems now allow synchronised movement of the bags to reduce headshake, it could even be a deliberate design decision.
I’m far more concerned that they sit low enough to drag the bags on the ground when cornering only moderately keenly.
Hi bikemoto. Thanks for your reply and confirming the flex. That's really good to know someone else is seeing it.
My second day off-road and my first sweats and fears in a mud trail to cross it.
Riding alone these days stops me for going farther.
Maybe some day I can finish the 1000km break in period...
Nice! Riding in mud with Karoos is enough to make most mortals break into a sweat. They scared me anyway.
Got tired of my pants getting eaten...
Why is the shifter rod nutz tightened against the ends instead of the turntable part in the middle?
It works the same way.
