Calibre Line 29 review?

Hi, first post so hopefully I'm in the right place....

I'm interested in buying the Calibre line 29 hardtail. It looks a brand new model, their top of the line hardtail. Their two cubed and line 10 get rave reviews so I am wondering whether there is a better bike than this for the money. I'll be doing a short commute to work, and trail riding at first, nothing too wild, but would hope to have some fun in future.

Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

    That does look like a pretty stunning deal. Calibres always get good reviews because they're well specced and the frames are good. This one looks like it will be the same.
  • It's a bit of a lump at 15kg considering the price the spec is not amazing compared to something like a bizango.. Looks nice though...

    Is it? What is so bad about the spec? I'm no expert but from what I have read the calibre's are pretty great specs :?

    Its about 2.5Kg heavier than the Bizango although the dropper post will account for about 0.5Kg of that.

    In addition the build is a bit 'burlier' than the Bizango in terms of brakes, tyres etc.
