Bike Rides Harsh An Crash'y
#1
Hi all,

I am looking for some inspiration really which way to take this either to continue or scrap this in favour of a 29er.

I have a bike that I have cobbled together over a period of time it used to be a kona cindercone frame I upgraded the front forks to sid's thinking it would make it ride a lot nicer and it still crashes over everything like it a rigid.

I was offered a nice Cube Reaction GTC pro carbon frame so I got it and it still rides harshly, I done some research to find that sid's even when at the specific weight setting run hard so I now run them pretty softly indeed, I have tried ride with the tyres low which helps a bit but not a lot.

When I have ridden my mates 29er's that he has had they all ride real nice.

Let me list my spec and see if anyone has any suggestions.

Cube Reaction GTC Pro Carbon
Rockshox SID's 2013 I think, they are straight steerer with adapter in the frame to fit.
Full XT group set with KMC chain.
Mavic Cross Ride Wheels.
Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.0 or 2.2
Magura Louise BAT brakes.
Thomson Stem.
Bontrager Riser.

Any ideas would be great, thanks.
