I currently only have one and a half bikes as I have sold a lot to fund this. My Fatty was one of the losses for this but this is quite fat. Had a major pain getting the frame as they wee all sold out on pre order when I made my mind up. Mailed every bigger dealer and Bike Treks in Ambleside said they were getting a complete in on 20th May and they would strip it and sell me the frame. Great shop. Frame arrived but only had some bits with others on order.

Few things went wrong, usually with shops sending wrong thing and then taking ages to replace. Still waiting on a front wheel replacement so almost complete pics for now. Opted to put 650B+ wheels on instead of 29.

Great stuff. Saw one of these in Stif recently and was very tempted but then realised my full suss is 120mm and can take 650b+ so got a p7 instead 8)

Got the front wheel on today and its a beast. Nice and long in the chassis, quite a bit longer than my Yeti, and really easy to pop the front wheel. Massively light in comparison to the full sus and rides really well.

Seriously, that's a nice bike.

Do it. This thing rides better than all my previous hardtails by a long way.
