Bargain!
I am a roadie so know little about MTB but never got how a carbon MTB frame fairs with all the stress it gets yet if my carbon road bike falls when stationary I get told I need to get the frame checked!
Don't buy a poundland lock to keep this safe.
And voted hot by the way as at least £500 cheaper then most places. Sadly people that would not spend more then £50 on a crap bike will probably make it cold as it wont be their sport or passion

Thicker carbon strips with more layers, heavier but more robust.
should look good with some red Nike trainers.
I hate SRAM drivetrains. One came stock on my Carbon Scott Spark and replacement parts are more expensive than Shimano. £80 for an outer chainring when half that price for Shimano. Why do so many manufacturers insist on fitting bikes with SRAM? Can someone please explain the hold that SRAM has over bike manufacturers. I'm not a fan of RockShox either, They are the same company as SRAM. I much prefer Fox suspension.
For your information. Specialized don't make all of their own bikes. If it says Specialized then the bike is made by one of the 4 big bike manufacturers called Merida. However, if it says S-Works then it is made by Spcialized.
Get it on the ride to work scheme and save even more! Not that I am a buyer though, but heat!
I need a ride to get me to the chippy and back.

I wouldn't worry too much, the F35 and Eurofighter are made from it...

Sram produce components under the name of numerous brands with ridiculous RRPs so that bike manufacturers can use those RRPs to justify the cost of high end bikes. Or at least this has been the case up until the last few years,they are for me now going toe to toe with shimano and imo are winning.
No doubt I would love this but not sure the Surrey/ Kent trails really need full suspension.
A massively overkill bike which will neutralise the majority of uk trail riding to make it boring, that said if you are gap jumping big and dropping off 1-2 metres rocks etc then yes will be a superb bike..

in respect of SRAM versus Shimano gearing, yes SRAM seem to be winning with the eagle and gx eagle 1x12 speed (single chainring on the crank) , Shimano 1x11 is great imho, but hopefully the rumours they are bringing out a new group set is true

im pretty sure the SRAM parts sold to bike company’s to use is sold far cheaper than the after sales prices, possibly subsidised to increase market share on new bikes drivetrains over its rival Shimano,
ps SRAM is a group company who now owns the branding of rockshox, avid , trutaviv and zipp

forks are definately personal preference I’m used to Reba and pikes by rockshox but for my latest build I got a heavily discounted 130mm fox 34kashima

Lol you what..neutralise the trail?! Geometry and quality of components is more important than mm , how you set damping...you choose the bike for your needs agreed, but this is not overkill, you just need to learn to set it up

We all have opinions, it seems the magazines want us to buy plus size 29ers with long travel this month, my friend has just got a shockwizz I’ll hopefully be borrowing to tune my new 130mm travel full sus, I live in Yorkshire and so carrying a big travel bike is no fun on the uphills, hence I’m more than happy with the smaller suspension..
by neutralise i meant meant anyone can ride a big travel rig downhill at speed, give that same person less suspension and or a hard tail rear end and it’ll be a different story

Think you hit the nail on the head, 1 bike is just not enough, had this conversation many times with the wife I run a 29er HT with 100mm up front for xc and 160mm FS, but I am looking at adding 1 more

Have a look at my latest deal the Sc tallboy is an absolute steal and can go 130 front with 27+ tyres or 29er, if I hadn’t just got the 5010 I’d have been all over it

my next will have to be a Fattie covered of most styles
