Packed this one out for the shop today-finally some fun,after tightening chains on some 539 old rusty gates.

Very fine finish,details like 1 1/8-1,5 steerer,postmount disctabs etc.

If someones looking for a modern TI hardtail,this isnt bad..

the first elite HPT`s were made by Lynskey,dont know about 2011,think it`s taiwan?

We have one in our store too, looks like everyone has finally got the Elite HPT's 8)

Shame the one we have is not my size, the boss got one in a 20" :(

Lovely bit of kit.

No idea if they are Far East frames or not, would be nice to know.

Some shonky phone pics from me of ours

May I ask the reason for such a dislike of certain brands?

Just curious, as despise is quite a strong term, sure I dislike some bike brands, but despise?

Had short term rides with Cube, Felt, LaPierre, Had a quick jaunt on a Commencal for a little while, That wasn't so bad

The first Three all I really didn't like to ride. I'll have another try at somepoint... Maybe it was just carbon.

No it isn't is it ;)

Shame you didn't get on with those bikes you tried, the Cubes are damn good value this year across most of the range

Carbon Cube, Reaction by any chance?
