Date Reviewed: January 25, 2010

Strengths:    Strong and durable, very robust bike. I have the 2008 model with disc brakes which are amazing. However Im a 38yr old dad who just like to take on the logging trails in the wicklow mountains on my own. I found a trail that the public dont use.. its awesome. Red deer are everywhere. Its isolated and stunning scenery with major steep hills. Heaven.

Weaknesses:    14 and a bit kg hard tail. I suppose a bit heavy but hey I only use it once a week..

Bottom Line:   
I will probably buy something a bit lighter next year, however I would say if I look after my Kellys salamander I will get another few years easy.
