any p7 owners on here
I had a 2010 one, it built up to a lovely ride , nice quality finish on the frame . I really liked it and would have another. A lot of people say they are too heavy , but the weight means next to nothing when your moving and it’s probably no more than a small tool kit in your backpack . Definitely a good hard tail . Im not so sure about steel not selling well either? Most quality hard tails are made of the stuff again now, so I wouldn’t worry about it !!!Posted 5 years ago2orangey4crowsSubscriber
Lovely bike. I’ve got a 2009 and absolutely love it. It does absolutely everything.
The only thing I would say is that it’s heavy so not really an XC bike. You don’t notice the weight on the flat and on the downhills, but as soon as you hit a hill then it feels a bit dead to me (that might be more to do with my fitness than the bike though!).Posted 5 years agomeehajaMember
fails the car park test (pick it up, go hmm, thats heavy) but rides like a lighter bike. Mine is built up 2×9 with low front end courtesy of EA70 stem and flat bars, riding mostly woodland single track and rocky, slippy calder trails.
Its a ideal “everything bike” for me, as a 30 year old, over weight occasional rider.
Ideally I’d like it lighter, and maybe later this year it’ll gain an air fork instead of the tora’s on mine, but otherwise a top bike.Posted 5 years agocompositeSubscriber
I have a 2010 and its a total do it all work horse for me. Use it to commute (it has rack mounts), great for a couple of hours blast round a trail center, also great for long full days in the saddle. I’ve put skinny tires on and done road riding with my dad.
It’s a great all rounder.Posted 5 years ago
