  1. Still going strong, last post was from november 2016, so.....hi everbody👋
  2. At the Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc for the French), which was covered in clouds that week. Italy is an awesome country to drive, nobody cares...
  3. toilet looks comfy, can't wait to give it a try. j/k, congrats on the beautiful house and S60.
  4. New paint, new tires, new headlights, new trim and lots more. Its like having a brand new 14 year old car... Sold the S70 two weeks ago.
  5. Nice picture from a roundtrip across the Netherlands with fellow 850/X70 owners last weekend.
  6. Tea? Put it up for sale last week. Fitted new tires and newish Mimas' so I can keep the Capella's for the S60...if it ever gets back from the paintshop.
  7. Another testbike...Banshee Rune, from Canada. A enduro so a bit extreme for the Netherlands. Cornerspeed is insane (grip!!) as is the way it goes downhill, it makes it looks so easy. 1*11 is something which i could get used to. Sold the Santa Cruz and the Idworx is in for service.
  8. Next stop; bodyshop.
  9. Little voice in the back of my head...' don't wreck it, don't wreck it...' I do think it's worth it, high end parts, craftsmanship, etc. But yes, a lot of money.
  10. A good friend of mine bought one of the first 11ants Mantis', it's a bike that has been displayed at a few bike shows in Europe, hence the 29" and 27,5"+ wheels. Took it to a trail for it's first ride out in the cold last Saturday. The rear shock needs some adjustment and the different sized wheels aren't ideal, but it was good fun. The Rohloff hub in combination with the Gates Beltdrive is awesome, it works flawless, no matter how muddy it gets. Very stable and the amount of grip is astonishing. A great experience. Would love to try it on my home trail with equal sized wheels one day. Oh...the price..; 10000 usd...
  11. Owned by PON holding, its a interesting company. Owns Cervelo, BBB (bike parts) and Gazelle (mostly roadbike's). Has a big share in the VAG group. It's Dutch btw. It's extremely wet in the Netherlands, a lot of trails are damaged due to the rain which is a shame. Did my home trail last Friday (two dry days in a row...) with the Idworx and it was a blast, it doesn't mind mud, the Santa Cruz on the other hand, everything rattles and squeaks in a few miles...and...fully's are a pita to clean! This is a big thing in my country; https://11antsbikes.com/mantis-2/ The attention to detail is amazing, but so is the price.
