    Sweet steed fella.
    Looks nice in the white and red.
    Kinda green with envy.
    How is the SLX groupset?
    I always find Treks more than other brands with slightly less spec.
    But saying that people are always willing to pay for their bikes and you do see a lot of them about.
    I don't mind what they say... as long as they say its enormous

    Looks very nice, like the red and white a lot 8)
  • Will add some more pics soon. The SLX rear mech is ok i think. Not as precise as an XT or XTR that I am used to. But hey I got £1100 of the list price so there is funds for upgrades of which an XT rear mech will be one of them. Otherwise in my opinion everything is pukka.
