Seat is 5 times more flexible than a standard frame thanks to a narrow 27.2 mm seat post. Low bottom bracket: helps keep the mountain bike stable in turns, and makes it easier to place foot on the ground. Open steering angle (69.5°): keeps mountain bike stable while riding. Short rear wheel base: bike is easy to turn.

      Overall it’s a good bike, but if your looking for good suspension like me this is not the bike for you. The suspension may as well not be there it dose nothing.

      After chugging around on a 1980's hard tail for years and it was a bike I loved and trusted as it had been around the world literally it finally died, so I went in search of another. Tried this in the store and could not believe the advancement in frame weight for a start and the power of disc brakes. I had always advocated V brakes for if set up properly they are extremely powerful even when caked in mud etc.... but they don't match discs. If you are looking for a good mtb at a good price then go for this. I wasn't keen on the saddle as I had a Brookes vinyl on my old bike on which i could ride all day so i've yet to put this to that test but so far i cannot fault this bike. Took it to Cannock chase monkey trail an it performed very well.

      Great bike light and comfortable riding a bike again after 30 years is great fun. Don't think I could have picked a better bike for the money.
