Oh for sure Reki! I found the front end more buoyant and lifting more on the uphills too. As for heavy rider I'm 16 stone and have thought before whats the point of saving weight here and there when I'm that weight...but I guess its like this...Walk around in lead boots or flip flops which is easier!

Yeah Cyfa I got this back in Jan. Love it but it took some sorting out to get it to where it is today (new wheels, rear mech, chainset, cassette n chain, saddle etc).

Best bike I have ridden by far....

Wook

Its the same but different! I've had it to pieces and replaced everything it needed without expense! Cost me £720 when I got it but must have spent another £400 since then!...Still its running like new at the mo and a joy to ride!
