I'll try and get a pic of my 456, its a 20" in metallic brown with black 140mm travel fork. Its a big bruiser thats great for chucking around trail centres. I do feel it a wee bit sluggish going up but with that fork going down is brilliant. Also lighter than I was expecting, nicely put together frame if not high end in its construction. I'm glad I bought one and I did think for a very long time about an on-one. Now I can imagine getting an alloy 26er Scandal. :D

Anyone fancy a swap? I'd love to try a 29' set up. I've got the frame in good order, reba sl's with less than 1000 miles on them and a set of crossland wheels, disc and rimbrake compatible.
