Cheers Gareth, it flippin' should be for the money!

And it is an absolute weapon, I love riding it and the suspension technology is simply incredible, wasn't sure about the brakes to start with but there is a huge amount of adjustment so I've got them feeling like I want now. The 27.5" wheels climb hills much better than the previous standard (26").

The engine technology is a bit lacking though! :(

I had a go on a Scott e-bike the other day,full suspension and derestricted,great bit of kit,very fun to ride,I'll stick to my old gt hardtail for now as the price tag is a bit rich for me,I am thinking of upgrading it but the choice is massive these days,a good hard tail on 27.5"'s seems to be endless,a few stand out but the better the bike the higher the price

Quite, I'm just back in after a very sweaty session round the local hills.

Gareth, I could have had a very nice motahsickle for the pennies but I'm too old to start that now plus I've too many other hobbies I don't have time for another.

I do have one problem with it, I can't ride the very end of one of my favourite single tracks well, I can't fail round the second last berm like I used to on my old bike.....I'm arriving at it too fast!

Dave are you sure your mate doesn't have a Five? I was going to buy a Five but ended up buying the Four after demo'ing one a couple of weeks ago, lighter, tighter, more precise and most importantly it suits my riding. Just waiting for a few more tarty bits to arrive, once they do I'll post some pics ;)

the EBC gold pads might help, from 30mph to 0 in 10m, the front suspension went full travel down and the back wheel started lifting.
i also recommend the EBC 203mm disk, i have a standard 160mm disk on the back and lets just say its lacking when compared to the 203mm disk (same calipers and pads)

The brakes definitely are not the problem, SRAM Guide Ultimates with the new S4 calliper, according to SRAM it runs 20C cooler than previous versions. Great modulation and awesome bite, bite point adjustment and reach adjustment on the levers.

Having run 160s, 180s and 203s on various bikes I've opted for some 180s on this one, perfect combination of bite and modulation for my weight and riding.

The forks I've got on it are Fox 34 Factory's with the FIT4 cartridge, they don't dive under braking.

The problem is I'm so much quicker on it I need to start braking earlier or just get used to its speed and lean it over more, more time in the saddle will determine which route to go but I hope it's the latter.

Have you heard the old racing adage.....slow in, fast out? Unless you're on a do or die outbraking overtake manoeuver, that is!! ;)


Gareth, I could have had a very nice motahsickle............but I'm too old to start that now

I feel sorry for your soul....I really do. :-\

That was suooosed to be rail round the berm not fail round the berm, doh.

And not it's a bit different riding a push bike round trails, steep wilderness descents with no real trail to follow, you pick up more and more speed, get a good flow and rythem going especially once you know a trail well. It's a bit different to what your talking about which does translate to driving cars but not the same when your using gravity as part of your engine.
