I took to Spain on our holiday. It was fantastic. I've ridden some of the steeper stuff I've ever ridden and the bike was spot on. I did have a concern about the size when buying in with regard to the bike length out of the saddle, but this trip proved there is no problem. It even started to dance!

A little update. The fox vanillas started creaking so they have been upgraded to 160mm Pikes. Hopefully this will also get around the pedal strike problems. Looking forward to trying this forks out tomorrow. It's also gained a Reverb stealth. I'm still not convinced I want/need a dropper, so we'll see how that one goes.

Looks good with the Pikes.

I was always a bit unsure about dropper posts until I got one. I wouldn't be without my Reverb now and really miss it when riding the Stanton.

Cheers. I did a ride recently and it's the first time ever that I thought a dropper might have been handy. We'll see....
