    Thanks for that-I think you’ve come up with useful input like that before

    If you google it’s pretty much all American experience so, pardon me but I thought I would ask for a uk view

    Always :lol:-had a quick spin on a superfly carbon job by the other day and it’s got me thinking it would be a good alternative to a rigid ss

    Yes the superfly was Jacks at swinnos and he said they had a large demo- may have a play

    Demo’d one today ( see awesome day on pitch thread) and absolutely loved it. Was smiling several hours after the ride. Amazing on steep and twisty stuff, in fact I enjoyed most on the steepest part of the ride. Didn’t seem anything out of the ordinary riding up fire roads but otherwise awesome.

    Top of my next bike list

    My brother in law swears by his. Built from scratch it’s very light and nimble. It accelerates like my 26er hardtail and feels really comfy on the long haul.

    Own a 26″ x 1 and rode an anthem 29er for a weekend to compare, no real benefits over the 26 that warrented me swapping to a heavier lower spec’d bike .l am only 5’9″ so maybe to short and l am in the 29er is a hybid camp.

    Pop,

    One of the lads that occasionally comes out with us has one and loves his. He picks between his Inbred and the Anthem depending on the ride we do. He finds the geo and riding position not much different from his On One, but the extra comfort and digging in from the back end he gets from the Anthem, it’s his long ride pick. I’ve got to say that if you can afford more than one bike, then it’s great to have a full susser to chose! I’m picking my full susser first time everytime at the mo until I feel it’s also time for a change! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ridden & rated (highly).
    got one on order ๐Ÿ™‚
    got to wait another 2 weeks though ๐Ÿ™

    got it especially for longer rides.
    it makes most things easier (& therefore less fun though) so won’t use it on group, easier or short rides so much to be honest.

    I must admit it would be an alternative for longer rides but I could just mtfu I suppose!

    Ringo- what are u having?
    I thought you were having a hard tail built!

    I tested one back to back with an Spesh Epic 29er. The Spesh got up slippery, rooty climbs which the Anthem didn’t. Spesh felt much nicer and more balanced.

    Boris-interesting, did you try any others?

    New hardtail on way, but have ordered a transition bandit 29 as well ๐Ÿ˜€

    No other 29ers. I do own a Gary Fisher 29er hardtail though and several 26″ bikes so I can make a reasonable comparison.
