How is that any more flexible than the Spark mate? This reads more like my RM than the Spark?

The on-one website is pants - keeps crashing!

I mainly ride XC


you might think you ride XC, but the manufactures definition of XC is -

bum in the air, head to toe in lycra, shaved legs, mega stiff, saddle like a knife, helmet with no peak, racing speed machines.

so if thats you then cool... get an XC bike..... but if you just go riding in the woods then the modern 120-140 trail bikes would deffo be the best fit. They are sub 30lbs and rapid as fook.. but also good fun.

Dave, my KHS is a 140 setup and loved the Surrey Hills experience...

Good UK setup and service from KHS dealer

At least they say you can buy parts from the US if there is an issue - Rocky Mountain didn't give that!

I rode a Zesty with 160mm and hated it...

Thought you said you liked the Zesty you tried @ Evans - but theyre 140mm???? Or you refering to my Spicy???
You honestly cant go wrong with the Lapierres though, try and find a bad write up about them, and always come up top in group tests, not that im bias either :)... One of the best handling aggresive trail bikes ive ridden, and ive ridden a few!!!
