I've had the Spark for a year now, never got around to posting it up here. Got the Rocky frameset a few weeks ago from BarneyBallBags and it's been ridden about 8 times - love it - pure hardtail flickability.

Have to say though, the Spark is amazing, for what it is and does - I'm definitely faster for it, but I still need my hardtail so I can remember how to ride for myself :lol:
