    It's great mate thanks. Family and work commitments mean I haven't used it as much as I'd have liked this year, but hopefully now the longer evenings are here I'll get some more opportunities!

    I've bought more kit than anything else, but the bike has had some Wellgo MG1 magnesium pedals which made a massive difference, and also upgrade the discs from 160-180mm which is also a worthwhile improvement.

    Roll on summer!

    Good man, no point doing it if you're not going to max the scheme out!

    I'd recommend a 29er any day.
