    Anyone ridden one yet ? Thoughts AND Pics please. ta. Looks like a fantastically versatile bike….

    I rode one breifly,it was a bit big for me, but i was impressed how well it climbed for a bike with such a relaxed steering angle.

    Awesome bike,i would have one for sure.

    😀

    I rode one a few months back on a dealer demo ride (spent a good hour on the bike). Was a nice enough bike to ride but it just didn’t inspire me. Climbed ok, descended as you would expect a long travel trail bike too, but it just didn’t seem to make much sense to me.

    If you absolutely have to just own just 1 bike, ride proper tech trails and spend a decent period in the Alps every summer then maybe so. But I still think that even in this case a 5 with a talas 36 or pike would be less of a compromise.

    Everything above is of course purely opinion, I’ve ridden and owned a lot of bikes but this one just didn’t register as special even though im generally a fan of their bikes.

    Sorry I havent responded sooner,RP23 I think!

    Rode one for a day on steep, tight, tech trails in the Swiss Alps, and it was smart. If I didn’t already own a Patriot, I’d probably have one of these as a do-it-all (I’d be trying out an Orange Blood first though, just in case).
