The correct spring had arrived when I got back at lunchtime, so the Craftworks is now complete and has been test ridden, albeit briefly. It feels quite odd riding a full-bounce bike, but I could get used to it :)

The angles feel quite slack on the Craftworks at the moment, and it could possibly do with a slightly longer stem. I’ll give it a proper off-road ride later and see how I get on though.

    It’s probably down to having just ridden a long, steep angled bike before jumping onto the Craftworks.

    I’ll take the longer route home via the LBS, then go for a proper ride to see how it handles.

    Plus the back’s probably sagging more than the front when you’re sat down. Longish travel bikes always seem to feel a bit sharper when you’re stood up.
