US-based Singletracks just gave the Murmur a thorough write-up and it’s already one of our favourites.
Test rider Gerow rode the bike for several weeks, building it up with Ohlins, Middleburn and Funn and including it in the website’s Mid-Travel Mash Up.
Gerow’s opening line sets the tone for the review and we were stoked to see he just ‘gets’ it. “There is an undefinable kinship in the way properly-placed steel tubes can interact with human meat that makes for an amazing experience on the trail”. He praises the “soulful-feel of the bike” and the way the bike “punches a bit above its travel numbers”.
We won’t give too much away – you can read the whole Starling Murmur review here on Singletracks.
