Its my daily ride, I love it!

the beauty of it is, its the same geometry as the patriot and i have the same bars & stem on it. so riding this 5 days a week and then the patriot at weekends means the patriot doesnt feel as foreign. :D

Good job on the yellow one. I've never got on with Orange full sus bikes for some reason but love their hardtails. My Sub Zero was one of my favourite bikes I owned...amazingly, for such a stiff bike it felt quite compliant and never made me ache in the way my Chameleon did after a long ride.

The black bars, stem and High Rollers look better.
