Just as the ProII's started it's performance decline, the bushings on the KHS's rubbish shock unit are now worn too, so there's a lot of clanking audible when you hit certain types of bumps.. and an unnerving movement on other types of terrain.

The geometry of the frame's annoying me too, it feels all over the shop, that might be down to the rear tyre though.

Do large bike companies *actually* do any R&D or do they just plug numbers into bike-forest ask TiaPai-Chung Bicycles to weld that shape then sell them?

600 miles old and I've already had to lock the rear-crock out and now have to figure how to remove the 1mm 'knock' in the bushings.

I can see this frame taking pride of place in the loft soon.
