Only just clocked that the internal cable routing runs through the headset, very neat.

And an absolute PITA to work on. The only set up worse is gravel bike integrated bar/stem/headset internal routing with hydro STI and sub levers.

Also. Say goodbye to X-ups

So comparing it to my current bike its not offering much except more range, but at the expense of more weight
Am I right in thinking you're running a coil on your 2018?

The tweak to the 2021s LC is far more coil friendly. infact. I'd say that LC was designed with a coil in mind.

Which makes it a bit odd that none of the full bikes seem to spec'd with a coil.

Ha, I did see that in the pink bike article . . No I have a coil for it, but have stuck with the Meg Neg'd super deluxe. I did notice its the same spec shock dimensions though as the old E-Sommett so the coil I have would work. . . . pretty solid man maths to go spend 5k on the new one just to put my coli on something :cool:

I have a coil on my 2018 which I'm hoping to transfer to the new 2021 when I can actually buy one :)
The stroke dimensions of the rear shock on the 18 and 21 are slightly different tho' I think 62.5 v 65.

has anyone got a 29" VRX yet? did I miss the release date and have they all sold out, or have they not been released yet?
