Built up this I drive last year and have finally managed to get some pics done the last time I went to quimcarn.

My first full suss experience and TBH I'm liking it..suspension feels very plush and it's actually pretty easy to get up the hills despite being weighty!

Might look into upgrading in the future :D

Definately 5 travel and quite bottomless as well.

Not a light bike but seems to go uphill pretty quickly, you just stay seated and crank away!

I suppose so, I find it pretty unobtrusive which is a good thing!

Forks not 2010/11 models but some old ones...very smooth coil travel though and don't really notice the lack of a lockout function.
