That looks lovely ... I'm really not sure about 1 x though and it's an expensive mistake if I don't like it .... there are some others in the Sirrus range, I#ll do some digging and see if they can all take that width of tyre in which case coudl be a serious contender.

I have a 29er, absolutely love it but they're bloomin heavy ... in an ideal world will hang onto that and use it in the winter as we go over some mud and have the Hybrid with slicker tyres and keep it mainly for summer / rides in the winter when we're not going anywhere muddy.
