Depends which one. This is lovely but i think all the XT and decent air shocks help. For an early full suspension i'd say they did a good job. Was £1800 new so cant be all bad.

what's the frame?

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse :facepalm:

This has to step as my winter weekday evening road training bike. It will oly come out after dark so as not to spook the local livestock.
