The head tube is too short for taller riders.

Great points! I will say that many reviewers highlight cheaper tyres and how they feel but that could be a case of someone having the experience to tell the difference. But if there's a difference then the customer won't be getting the best experience either.

An XT shifter is so smooth and allows multi-shift up and down. Again it's a case of offering a better experience and better features for no more cost. After all, what's the real difference between Deore and SLX rear shifting?

Lastly the colour is subjective and maybe I'd like it in real life, I'm more a bright colours kind of guy which is why I own a Ragley Big Al smile

At this price, with a Canadian-made frame, the package is incredible value. Upgrading to better brakes is easy and you can choose what you like. I ride a Nukeproof Scout 290 (which btw is incredibly fun and was my go-to bike in the winter months, rarely missing my Foxy) and...more

Not bad but the colour is a bit meh and they should be adding a 4 piston brake to the front (and even a 203mm rotor). The tires are also the cheaper dual compound version. Also I'd like to see more brands upgrade the shifter to an XT rather than the rear mech.

Try the Henty Enduro 2.0. It's brilliant!

Do Fox not make jerseys with a half zip any more? I love my red, blue and black one!

Put a 150mm on there and you'd have roughly the same geometry as a Ragley Big Al. Not sure how bottom bracket heights compare though.

OUT: Brands being forced to spec SRAM Eagle SX/NX cassettes and SX rear derailleurs. A plastic derailleur shifting on a boat anchor.

IN: Progressive geometry across more entry level bikes.

PS. What about hardtails with seat angles of less than 76 degrees? The Nukeproof Scout, Whyte 905 and other trail hardtails seem to do just fine with that!
