Review submitted on previous model: Pros; classy looking bike - quality finish - good spec - rides well on the road & much better than my Xduro hardtail.
With slick tyres - even with my weight (200lbs) I can do all the hard routes, including 25%/30%ers in the Lakes & Dales
Cons; lights could do with flashing option
Bought this for day rides/touring - fitted mudguards/rear rack & smaller c'ring 16 teeth to assist on the steeper hills. Great bike.
