Me too. Everyone said an SX Trail was a great "UK downhill bike", whatever that is. So I built one up, solid and dependable, and crap. Like a modern trailbike, except it didn't go up hills. Didn't go down any better. It turned out that what's better for UK downhill is a downhill bike, astonishingly.
