Extremely happy with the bike. Since collecting it last week I have ridden it over a multitude of surfaces. Trail, rocks, gravel, broken roads. I enjoy being able to link up fast road sections with more remote bridleways and trails. It's really compliant and doesn't appear to be much slower than a lighter road bike. I got the flared bar and Mavic allroad options as I think they really help when descending when on uneven surfaces. It's a great value package and feels really solid.
After waiting what seemed like an absolute age for the bike to arrive (albeit understandable given the circumstances), I finally got my hands on it about a month or so ago. So far it's been superb.
First off, I put some deep section carbon wheels to put it into 'road mode', and dropped a lot of weight in the process. It rolls well along the (shoddy local) tarmac, the 28mm tubeless tyres helping with this, and climbing is so much easier with the 32 tooth cassette on the back. Then, I took the WTB tyres that it came with, added them tubeless to a lighter set of Hunt wheels, and took it around a local trails centre, mixing it with the local MTBers, and mostly leaving them spinning in my wake! These are fire roads, so nothing very technical but it dealt with it admirably, and got some admiring (and quizzical) looks in the cafe at the end of the ride - probably as drop handlebars are not in much evidence there.
The third iteration - back to road mode, with the addition of clip-on tri bars to take on a local triathlon which included a section of sustained 25% climbing - again the 32 sprocket came into it's own, especially when passing those on 25-11 walking the steepest sections!
All in all a great do-it-all bike - not the lightest (especially with the Aksiums and knobbly gravel tyres), but light enough. Not for the most technical off-road routes, but will get round most things gravel with ease, and transforms into a proper road bike with a change of wheels. It even came in my tri-club colours!
