    Lucky chap! 😀

    Yup, I have a 2×10. Very happy with it indeed. Climbs really well (great traction) and lots of fun elsewhere. I ditched the stock wheels before even using them and fitted a Stans Crest wheelset with Spesh Pugatory / Ground Control tyres which saved about 2.5lb

    I bought one of the 1×10 bikes as I wanted a cheap snotter to blat about on over the winter.

    It’s the first HT I have had in probably 7 years, so riding it for the first time was enlightening.

    The forks are hideous, and the wheels/tyres need some upgrading over time. It also makes me want a dropper post.

    I’ll end up just riding it into the ground though. Wide bars, short stem & a dropper & that will do. It’s a fun bike for not much money at all.

    Custom built mine to 1×10, first 29er I’ve had and I can’t believe how good it is. Running 100mm easily feels as stable and maybe more stable than a 26″ full suspension 100mm bike. Considering its a relaxed head angle it feels very good climbing. I would definitely recommend it

    I have the 2×10 and its a hoot to ride, not the lightest but climbs well and is great fun down hill, even taken it round small tight pump tracks where its performed much better that you’d expect. Very happy with mine.
