Sounds like you have the same problem I have Russell! Took me a while to get hold of a Bontrager in Medium and most Roberts frames I see tend to be too big as well :(

Does it have full suspension and Maguras?

:)

Actually yes I do, but my wife is insisting that I take her on holiday in March so I'm not allowed to buy anything for a while :(

I had one of them at one point, took the ally swingarm off and put a carbon one on off Ebay (£18!!) and hey presto an 857! :D Also stripped it down to bare aluminium - looked the mutts nuts...then sold it to a friend who uses it all the time now.

Still have the aluminium swingarm lying around somewhere.

Hmmm.. It was probably the fact that we went to Centre Parcs (Elveden) last Feb that has prompted the insistence on sunnier climes this year :lol:
