It's all a matter of personal choice I guess, the alloy frame and light weight components make this bike weigh in about the same ( maybe a bit less ) as my steel frame single speed road bike.
SS is getting bigger all the time here now, it's very popular in London. As supply of the older steel racing bike frames dry up I think that lightweight, cool retro mtb's will begin to trend....then you will see lots more around the place.
I'm glad you have an opinion on my bike, it's job done when you get a reaction either way.

Not that the bike is ever going to be ridden off road (by the looks of it)...but I would think the motion of the suspension is going to affect your drive train in a negative way.

Hi Rumpfy.... Mild off road and washed afterwards ! LoL
Tracks and trails, no serious ruff and tumble stuff.
The spring at the back is pretty firm to keep things nice and tight, so it's very usable.
Tyres will limit the fun, but it's great fun to ride.
If it's a bit more challenging I've a standard Proflex to play with - jr
