Just started this mtb malarky and bought this at the start of the year, its ..... and I kid you not my first bike I have ever owned.
Tried a few at Edinburgh bikes and this felt the best and for the money I really couldnt complain.
Only really been on cycle tracks, parks and back and forth on local farm roads but sure she will be fine on trails at Glentress etc once I get used to it.

Ignore the pedals, I have some V8's in white on the way and plan on white grips to add a certain .... well bling I spose. Apart from that unless it breaks I really dont know what needs done.
Cheers for looking.


  • Nice bike my friend. I was very tempted by this same bike when i was buying a bike last year.

    Also what the hell happened to you shed, mortar strike? :lol:
    Never argue with an idiot, he'll only drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
  • Very nice bike you've got there. I think you've got yourself a fantastic first bike! New pedals and grips are what I would have recommended.

    Get yourself over to Glentress if you're near Edinburger, If you're a little skethchy, the blue route is ideal - nothing technical, but once you've got the hang of it, you can fly round it.

    The only thing I would change would be to lose the big chain ring and get a white bash guard on there, but, you need to learn whether you want it or not first.

    Looks good. And bling is always good ;)
    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    EBC's Revolution range is pretty spectacular in terms of value for money, great customer service aswell. Good buy. :wink:
