This is an amazing price for a very respectable mountain bike, this is the 'flood' price so be quick if you want one!
Only available in 19" frame.

Two for one The Hornet two stage linkage: Creating a stable platform while hammering up climbs and plush suspension riding downhill. When Be one started to work on the Hornet XC full suspension bike the first thing we did was look into the needs of a modern full suspension bike. This list of requirements paired to our own experiences in suspension technology (from XC to DH) made it clear to us that a single pivot swingarm paired with a linkage system was the way to go to develop the all new Hornet concept.The challenge to design a suspension system which is active on impact but stable with pedal induced influences was a great one.
Be One has spend years refining the knowledge of suspension linkages and how they can be manipulated to achieve different goals. Starting out using a multitude of computer analysis paired with real time data acquisition results Be One has found the needle in the haystack. Enter the 2 Stage Linkage!

I always thought suntour was terrible, anyone know how good the spec is on this for the money?
Im after a full susp & this looks quite nice.

Suntour forks are not the best but ok at the cheaper end, value for money you'd be hard pressed to beat this:thumbsup:
£750 rrp and no disk brakes?.
My hubby is in the £6-800ish market for a decent bike at the moment, and says this is a pile of tat (his words, not mine, it gets my vote as I think it's a lovely colour), mainly as above because of the brakes. Fair enough, it's a lot cheaper than the stuff he's been looking at but if the RRP isn't accurate then it isn't as much of a deal.

I'm sure it will be good for some though - I wouldn't notice the difference, but then I'd be happy with a £50 bike from Lidl.

I would say that the RRP was correct in 2006, but technology has moved on and so the price has moved down :)
