Strengths:    This bike weighs the same as the pro model as my neighbour owns one. Yu are definately getting value for money as it has a really good build on it with a superb adjustable bounce. You can not beat riding next to a show off in the night on a track as it the black paint job gives this the ultimate diamond finish. Overall excellent, no problems with it so far.

Weaknesses:    to much envy from other riders

Bottom Line:   
This bike kicks a## and thold Sez SO!

Strengths:    Great spec for the money. Frame is beautifully made for the price. X9 rear mech. It's easier to clean than my full sussers

Weaknesses:    Only sold in UK Halfords/Bikehut stores - deserves better!
Saddle a bit thin for my 44 year old fat ass :-)

Bottom Line:   
I bought this as it was very cheap for a bike of this spec and was too good to pass over. Cost me £300 for a slightly (mostly road) used pre-owned model. Going UK price was £600 new.(newer version has air fork but lower spec gearing).
Always puts a smile on my face as it's so damn light compred to my Giant. Very nice spec for the money and i'd recommend it to anyone as a great 1st hardtail to start off your biking love affair

Ordered an Epic Comp

and I pick it up on wed. After having demo'd numerous other bikes it comes down to the Epic. I wasn't really sure about the "brain" as I thought it was sort of gimmicky but it seems to do the job. For me the Epic seemed to feel closest to a hardtail while still giving the comfort of full sus. I'm su ... Read More »
