Gut reaction ~ why the high bb? Can't believe they spec'd it that way.

Some racing whippets like them like that, and that presumably is what it's been built for - racing. It doesn't look to me like a trail centre bike (whatever they look like?) but it does look as if it's made to go fast.

Nice, but not my cup of tea.

BB doesn't look that high BTW

Im also confused over several of the comments.... :shock:

And I think more trail centers need more Bespoke fillet Brazed D.O.G.S running around..... :lol:

like the spec, don't dislike the colourway, whilst refreshing to see something different bearing Roberts decals, its not my choice.

A modern Race bike with Modern Spec, built the way Mountain bikes used to be built.

You cant go wrong really.... 8)
