Well after spending ages looking for a Scott Scale or a On One Whippet I found a mint 2011 Five.
A part share from the Pace as well as some new bits. Forks may change but it feels good!

I'm going to be a big girl and say....

I like the colour!

Have you used it much in anger? I've not ridden one of the newer Five's but Dirt rave about them. There's a few chaps I see at Cannock on Five's with big forks giving them some right hammer.

In all honesty no! The only hill it's seen is the steep one next to the Carherdal in Lincoln. Makes the ride to work fun. First proper play this weekend. Impressed what bit of fun I've had on it so far! Can't wait to smash the trails on Sunday!!!

Yeah sorry about that, just couldnt see half of it in the top one.
What tyres are on there at the moment?
How do you find the brakes?

I think the fork choice is great for this, goes really well. How about a spec list and weight? Looks quite sprightly and minimalist.
