    I've got a pretty simple bike with just front sus.

    Felt Q220. Nothing amazing but does the job at trails. Obviously could be better, but for what I do it's enough.

    I try to do at least 2 Chain Reaction Cycles marathons a year. We've so far done Selkirk this year, done 2 last year. So we're lightweight :Smile:

    This is my bike after Ruithin Marathon last year:

    was before the mortgage bud. i sold it because of the tool bill more than anything else, plus i wasnt riding the thing for what it was built for. got a bit scared in my old age.
