I love these frames, have had 3, but I always get frustrated with the instability of them, the high BB, (12.75 inches) designed for Trials use, spoils the XC ride quality and makes them tricky to handle in the wet.
I've had it for slightly more than 10 years now. Bashed it for a good 3 years worth of off-roading and it served me really well. I had a hard time searching for another bike which is as responsive at this bike. I have to admit it gets tricky in the wets and getting the weight down on the rear to move uphills is a bit challenging. But that could be due to my choice of tyres. Afterall, the tropical rain here in Singapore gets rather heavy. But once it gets into technical trials, that's where it shines.
