Nice bike - the paint looks really good and the plain XT kit suits these bikes best IMO.

I am really impressed with how mine rides - I was expecting a really twitchy harsh ride given the reputation of these bikes but it is actually a really nice predictable and planted ride - the frame absorbs a lot more trail buzz that sme modern ally bikes I've ridden too.

They are definatley bikes that deserve be ridden not just looked at!

Nie pics too :D

Love the way the snow in the background makes the paint really stand out, the one with it leant against the signpost is my favourite.

Top job and so pleased its not a garage queen :D

Nice looking Attitude.
And better that it is getting down and dirty.

The fork decal churns my stomach but otherwise two thumbs up.
