Revisited: The Specialized Status 140 After One Year With a Guest Editor
I didn't see too many mixed reviews, most were generally positive. The negatives which crop up again and again are undeniable - everything SRAM branded on this bike is shit (alright the cranks and cassette are probably fine), and cheap wheels.

Revisited: The Specialized Status 140 After One Year With a Guest Editor
I have one too - I saw the NX drivetrain failure coming a mile off, so I replaced the whole lot and the brakes with XT before it turned a pedal. All said and done it owes me about £2.5k (C2W scheme). Seems damn good for an XT equipped bike with 36s, and it really does ride well pointed downhill. I will say, the shock lockout has GOT to work to get this bike up a hill. Mine was dodgy out of the box and I was so disappointed, until I sent the shock off for a warranty service. I've probably used the lockouts more on this bike than on my Nukeproof, which I owned for eight years. The bike is also very heavy, definitely heavier than the 2014 trail bike it replaced. Not entirely surprising given the intended usage/spec/fork, and anything with this travel getting close to 30lbs probably costs twice as much.

Transition Releases Relay Lightweight eMTB
We can't match the buying power of Transition etc - I'd always take the full build option. I got a new bike in December, sold the NX drivetrain and Code R brakes, which paid for the majority of the XT replacing it. It's more hassle and it's weird taking brand new parts off, but you get the best bang for your buck and exactly what you want.
