Anyone got one?

I'm in the market for a new modern hardtail and like the look of the Cove.

Wondered if anyone had any thoughts for or against.

Recommend a similar ride?

Thank you :)

If I had the extra £1k, I wouldn't buy a Hummer.

Russ, i don't think you could go wrong with it, it gets great reveiws :wink:
Might be worth checking the mud clearance though.
Also, you don't see them everywhere so thats a plus :D

Russ - Cove looks nice. You may want to consider the Charge Duster which gets rave reviews. Kingroon has one - ask him about the ride :wink:

Heathy - thats what I thought, they do seem to get good reviews but I never see any about which makes me wonder how suited they are to UK trails.

Kev - I like the Duster aswell, I've been running my 'inbred' for a while now and like the whole singlespeed thing so once I've got the Cove sorted I'm selling the on-one and getting a singlespeed Duster :)

My wife nearly killed me when I said I wanted to spend £400 on a handjob.

Kev and Heathy... thanks for replying, obviously no-one here has ridden a modern hardtail, hence the lack of advice :)

I decided to buy a Duster, I couldn't resist the lure of a Tange Prestige frameset, I think I was drawn to it over the Handjob because it reminded me of my old Orange Prestige.

Should be here next week :)

Just as a matter of interest did you consider a cotic?
