The Review
This bike handles well and the geometry has a nice feel with medium and above average componentry. I like it so much I'm just about to convert it into an e-bike with a bafang mid-drive motor, either 500 or 750w. It's a fairly compact frame and stops well with the hydraulics. I will, however, upgrade the disk as an E-Bike. It's also a lovely bronze metallic brown which is a relief from the garish paint work of many mountain bikes. I say it's tough because it can take a fall on the road and get back up without blinking an eyelid. Highly recommended.
