New frame!

Today I got a new frame, Cube Stereo 160 C:68 27.5 action team 20″.

Here is some porn.

Converted to hardtail via 20mm electricity tube. (to prevent the swing from hitting the frame)

The scales were tipped at 2259g for the frame with internal routing guides and some screws.

Wheel clearance is quite good, chainstay measures from 75 to 80mm in the tire area.

Unfortunately the Pike is not quite the same color ;P

The downtube seemed like black in the retail pictures, but it is not ūüôā

First time on a dirt track

We went to a dirt track after the last mtb group ride in local forest. This was my first time in actually built jumps, but luckily I had watched some videos in the internet. Most importantly I knew to lighten the front on the edge of the jump and then steer the front back down to landing while in air.
