You'll find better tyres will help on roots, rocks, hard pack etc where there is less reliance on how much the tread digs in and more on how well the rubber itself grips.


Yeah i'm definitely gonna be upgrading at some point soon, realistically it'll be for better mud tyres near winter. And RE the shock that's exactly what i thought, there's a lot of room between the shock and the top tube so surely you must be able to fit one on

Proper Ride

So after being either busy myself, my mates busy or a combination of the two i finally got the chance to go take it up to Gisburn on Friday for a proper thrashing, and all i can say is wow i forgot how good this bike was, so confidence inspiring when you chuck it into corners and over jumps. Managed to smash some PB's on most of the trails with it (I know people on here get funny about thinking a bike shouldn't make you faster, but compared to my old Kona Four this makes a huge difference), still fancying upgrading from the Formula's at some point, they lack the initial bite that i like, and do seem to fade towards the end of a good 2 hour ride (although this could just be the pads, but i'm looking at the new Shimano Saints anyway). Wheels have been ordered as a birthday present to myself so looking forward to getting them on and getting back out again soon

Obligatory top of the Hope Line climb and Hully Gully picture's, next time i'm there i might try to get someone to take some pictures actually on trail

The two places I usually stop for photos (ok, for a breather).
