Came accross the Genius Ultra Hardtail on CRC. It looks pretty cool.
Does anyone have any experiences or views of this bike. The spec looks excellent value for the money. Looks more than capable of handling street style, local trails and trail centres. I'm after a tough hardtail as a playbike (I've got an Attack Trail for bigger stuff in the Peaks) but custom build Summer Seasons and Blue Pigs are coming in at between £1,300 and £1,600 for SLX builds with 140mm Pikes or Talas RLC. I know they're both longer forks than 120mm but the Fox F-32 RL on the Ultra is supposed to be an excellent fork. I could stretch to £1,400 for the Summer Season. But at half the price for the Ultra, do I really need to?
