    Okay, sounds good and it all makes sense. However, the over-doing it seems to be focused on intensity and not on ultra-distance.

    Another vote for the 800. All of the plus points have been covered above, so no need to repeat here, but I have been very happy with my 800, no problems, no issues, all good.

    Yes Lesper4, Brutal, in fact. The site lists 18,000 feet of climbing but riders who have done it (Victor, Saralie, Anny) tell me it's more like 20,000.

    On the plus side, I have been climbing...
