What are your first impressions? I have one on order but it's still with DHL.

The Canyon looks amazing, very nice. I tried a Strive on the weekend but would like to try the Torque. And also the YT Capra. The Rocky Mountain Slayer though is an absolute beast. Not sure which of those should get my money...

Also can you confirm the front hub doesn't have a disk rotor mount?

Zoomed in, it doesn't have a disc mount.

Looks like a nice ride, I'd love a jump bike again.

Thanks, didn't realise it was such a hi res pic until I clicked it! It's a bit irritating as I'd like to fit a front brake. Could rebuild the wheel with a new hub I suppose...

Well... it's very twitchy and it'll take some time to get used to. My Canyon is so much more stable in the air but then again, it doesn't flick around as easy. The Dirt Love is my first Dirt Jump bike and today was the first proper ride. I dunno how to jump yet but I have cleared the first small table already. :)

Here's a video of the bike. A Hope Pro 4 Trials hub is on order already and yes, the front doesn't have a disk mount.

 

And here's a vid of myself doing the first jumps on it.

Looks like a neat bike. You change the brake to the Shimano?

Yes + I mounted a 140mm Hope X2 rotor. The tires are different too.

Couldn't resist getting a Hope Pro 4 trials hub for my dirt bike and while I was at it, got a DT Ex471 rim as well. Doesn't get any stronger than this.

So, I ordered this in October's cyclescheme window and didn't get it until January. 

Only been out a few times on it and the only additions are a Brand X Ascend dropper and some DMR V6 pedals but I love it. 120mm travel is probably a bit low for you guys but it'll do me for round here, wouldn't want to spend much more considering how often I get out!

Yep, well worth the money in my eyes. Especially tax free!

Cheers, does the job for me. Tyres are wank though so the next job is new rubber and tubeless

My Camber Evo just washed in time for some bigger discs. Went from 180/160 to 203/180. Feels better already. Check that munter of a brake mount. 

Im between grips at the moment.

What's with the bar angle?

Bike came with these bars or are you referring to them being in line with the head tube?

Just looks weird because there's hardly any *trials* upsweep.

They appear to be setup with downsweep (is that a thing?) which looks totally wrong. I'd have to run them so that they were at least horizontal (which looks like the rise would then be vertical relative to the ground). Are they the stock YT bars?

There's following BMX trends then there's having broken wrists. 

Set the bars up to how they suit you, not what's *cool*.
