I was set to get a HT with my £1500 budget but found one of these on sale today, took it for a quick spin and loved it.

There's a review on this site of the 09 model saying the rear shock is rubbish, but confusingly (and not suprisingly) there's one of the same shock in the 08 model saying it's great. I'm not experienced enough to know what to look out for so wondered if there are any owners with an opinion. Will be used for smooth trail / xc stuff
