    I'd say it has more to do with having a s**t-tin of spare cash lying around.

    Love the colour coded SID.

    Been looking forward to seeing this one complete, please let us know how it goes. After 12 months of being a stay at home Dad I have finally found a job, so that means an income which means a new bike . This bike is right up the top of my short list.

    It takes an e-type front derailleur so I wanted the bit more thread engagement the Saint bb offers with the frame.

    I heard it rides very much like a single pivot, similar to a 575, should be good.

    Lol. It rides nothing like a 575. Testing it on a familiar track today it rides better than my Pivot Mach 5, and that bike is excellent. When I was considering it's replacement I was looking at the Yeti SB66, Pivot Mach 5.7 and Ibis Mojo HD 140. After testing the 575 I was left feeling it was extremely overhyped; poor pedalling performance when standing, flexy rear end, the rear brake affected the suspension - it didn't come close to any of those bikes.

    I guess this is one of the advantages of working in a bike shop!

    Best looking HT I've seen on these forums. I really like the cleanliness of the build with most of the cables hidden.
    Please donate to IMBA or your local IMBA chapter. It's trail karma.

    Yeah, I know, it was a pretty poor attempt at a wind up on my part, your love of the 575 is well known.

    The 301 looks great-enjoy.

    Yeah well that's what happens when you get some backyard hack to help you lower your fork.
