Have had this PA for nearly 2 years, but it replaced a mk1 PA that I'd owned for about 18 months before that. It was getting tatty, was looking to get it repainted when the later model in the right colour came up on the classified. Same size, same geometry, just swapped the bits over.

Came to it via a rigid Inbred, that got 100-130mm Revelations, frame got swapped for first PA, along with nicer stem/bars/post (they got reused on my commuter). Swapped Revs for Pikes as my mate needed some forks and another mate was offering his Pikes. Swapped wheels for Hope Hoops as I needed a 20mm front. Upgraded discs to SLX (again, partly because a mate wanted my old set). Swapped frame for the orange one leaving all the parts exactly as-is. Beyond that it's just been replacing bits as they wear out but shifters/mechs are still the original Deore ones off the Inbred.
Forks could do with a service and could get replaced if there was a good deal going on something better. Other than that it's spot on for the mix of riding I do - no room for more bikes, not enough money or inclination to spend £2k+ on the latest wonder-suspension bike.
