I agree, just for the noise it will cause.

When I was on holiday I did two 20 mile XC rides with the site guide and MTB racer and we were joined by a guy on an original activator who doggedly kept up with us the whole way. I suggested that his ability deserved something a lot nicer and he said he was going to join up here as he couldn't believe what you could get for your money.

i had a 'crackled silver/black' one when i was 13. it got robbed as a rat and i was gutted, got a max ogre off the littlewoods on tick shortly after. i honestly wouldnt mind owning one again just because mine was stolen and i was so gutted at the time but from memory there wasnt even 1mm of sus travel it was all about the looks.
