Bought this using the Cycle to Work scheme at work in March – a discounted end of year model. So far quite like it – my first venture into full suspension. Often ride at Swinley Forest, Bracknell as well as plenty of local trails in the Chilterns. Planning on completing the London to Brighton this year in a half respectable time!
