Maybe we should club together to buy one and give it a thorough test at Afan or somewhere and then send the bits back to the manufacturer :o
Would make for a funny youtube vid.  Especially the bit when it finally breaks and the rider (well, volunteered Breezer Wink ) lays down for a moment :'(

lol thinking about it, my Dad does as well but branded Saracen I think  Big Grin

He was moaning that it was quite heavy to ride, I picked it up (just) and it must have been over 40lb's with its quality pogo stick rear suspension with no rebound damping. He bought it cheap second hand although no excuse as I told him to just buy some old rigid or HT mountain bike and put slicks on it
