Some enterprising young bike rider in the U.K. should go and check this out. You can take an Empire out on the hill and report back!

I thought I would bump this, since Descent world have reviewed it amazingly (although slightly more reviewing on the shocks used seemed to be done).

Here is the review, prices are at the end.

i rode one of these on demo today up the forest of dean mini dh race. i had two runs on it and i was instantly impressed by it. it is one awesome piece of kit jumps awesome pedals nice but there is one little problem its a tad heavy 14lb frame but it doesn't make a difference my orange is sub 10lbs and these go faster and jump better than that. also the price with a roco its £2200, with a bos its £2300 and with a ccdb its £2400 so they don't come cheap but it's worth it and i would have gotten one today if i had the money

ye i was there to and dabbled a few runs down the hill, and it really is something special. it feels so planted and stable at high speeds and just eats the track up, its one seriously fast bike, and one that i highly recommend if you've got the cash.
