    I've just ordered an Amazfit BIP, it works with strava and has GPS and it's around £50.

    Very jealous! Really want to get back here at some point but having a hardtail means i'd have to hire for the most fun, and once you do that, hotel etc. etc. it all adds up fairly quickly :(

    Have you been before?

    RUBBISH! I have just as much fun on my HT than on my FS.

    Agreed, I've taken my ht down some pretty gnar stuff. It's always fun.

    Unlikely. But has anyone been to lake Garda? Off with the girlfriend soon, and wouldn't mind a half day riding.

    Not been before, taking my HT. It's got 2.8 tyres though and the uplift takes max 2.75. Could deflate and take a pump :D

    While I love some hard tail shreddage, nothing beats plowing rock gardens on a DH bike! :p

    That and i'm not in a position to be buying new wheelsets anytime soon!

    Take your track pump up the top on the first uplift and lock it to a fence :p

    I’m far too fat and need to focus on getting the miles in before sending it first too :p

    I'm back on my HT for a few weeks whilst Orange respray my Five :(

    Riding the Blues at BPW on the HT is way more fun than riding 'em on the FS. Not sure about all the Reds though - I've never tried them on the HT.
