Aye me too ... blegh ... at least if they drop the price sub £1000 I'll consider it.

They are Evan's own brand and as a result should be a damn site cheaper than they are.

Pretty light weight XC/Enduro-light frames. sort of similar to the mongoose canaan elite in concept. I understand the Tent Peak 1.0 gets 8/10 in one of the UK bike mags this month... but 8/10 isn't really enough to make me go for an unknown brand and a completely new design.

Meh we deserve a couple of hundred extra discount just for the horrible name.

Are, the pinnacle 'morning glory'. Recent price drop makes it look more tempting, but rather have a trek fuel for that money.

Would be worth going into a shop and taking one for a ride.

Gave one a go in the end. A nice XC bike.

Cannondale Prophet 3 SL was better in my opinion.

Went for a trek remedy in the end!
