How do you like it? Ever feel limited? Must be so much easier to maintain plus I bet it 100% reliable too!

Loveit!

Simplicity to pump that ratio for all it’s got!
Yes 100% reliable on a CK SS hub ;-()

Now this I like! Big Grin

The frame is 850USD, for alu. Their page makes it sound very sophisticated, so maybe it's worth it. All I know is that you could theoretically hang on to a steel frame forever, where as I'm not sure how an alu hardtail would hold up over years.

if we're talking about alu frames then the Saracen Zenith LSL 2020 ticks a lot of boxes.. for me at least..i really like all the geo numbers (maybe just a little too much bb drop). I also like the looks of it..Their Mantra LSL is also nice if 27.5 is your cup of tea..

Saracen Zenith LSL 2020
