I'm pretty happy with her so far but i think in the future will consider going to 1x10 with a guard instead of 2x10 perhaps? Any thoughts?

Big thanks to Rob and the team at http://www.bikeactive.com - would definitely reccomend them, great range of products, extremely knowledgeable and very quick service.

    What size is that CommyAdam - it looks like an XL...? How tall are you?

    It's a large...I'm pretty much dead on 6ft and I did that pretty much perfect. Any smaller and it would definitely difficult to pedal, it does have a pretty short cockpit but unlike that, but if I'd got the XL it would be a lot less chuckable. If you're about my height i'd recommend the large.

    Jus recovering from a long day seasoning lee quarry on it ...pretty much perfect for the meta sx, loved the descents on it. It rolls so fast I felt it getting away from me all the time, but love that feeling! Totally recommend one for all mountain, enduro etc...
