ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

After demo-ing quite a few ‘long travel/all mountain’ type 29ers, I decided to get a Horsethief, as the bike really suits our local trails and the sort of riding I do - and it absolutely blitzed my favourite descent:)  I took delivery of the bike about 3 weeks ago and had it 9 days before some scumbags stole it! Arrrghh!!

There are no 2012 bikes left in the UK, so I’ve sourced a replacement frame to do a custom build.  I’m thinking of upgrading the shock on the bike to a Kashima CTD (like the 2013 Horsethief 1), but want to get the feel of the stock bike.  Pete, can you tell me what tune the Horsethief 1 runs on its shock please? Oh, and is the CTD a boost valve shock?

Cheers.

When building the 150mm travel 650B version of this bike.  I would recommend a head tube angle between 67 and 67.5!  I am ready to buy one! Large please!
