Note that the forks can be adjusted to 120mm travel with a simple air shaft change if you fancy trying out Anthem SX travel & geometry.

There's always one... ;-)

To those that are into their MTBing, this represents excellent value for a well specced full suspension bike... it is a hot deal!

Great price. Bought one a few months ago for £1200 which was a good deal & it may well get cheaper now that 2016 models are in. Absolutely love the bike so can highly recommend.

Bought one myself too, a couple of weeks ago. Didn't post up as expected them to sell out fast...

I'd been tempted when it dropped to £1200 at pedalon, but held off. Couldn't resist at £1091!

Not ridden it yet as been tinkering with the spec... done the 120mm front upgrade, swapped over best bits from previous bike (also an Anthem) and now running 1x11 XT.

It's now 25.8lb (I'm a weight weenie...).

Don't want to get it muddy, it looks too nice... ;-)

Yeah bought from pedalon myself in the past (Giant Trance 2005), seem good.

Long wait until summer....

Too true.
But for £1149 you'll get an old car that's as sexy as Nora Batty. For the same money you can get this bike which is so sexy that you'll sleep with it every night.
