    Hi, I believe a Specialist is more for 4x or dirt due to its short bases and seat tube.
    As an Ells addict and wishing to buy a HT for winter rides I had to switch to a SC Chamelon which is more trail oriented. I also tried a Chromag Stylus but it was a bit too heavy for climbs.
    I just wish that Ells could release some "do it all" HT such as the Chameleon or Cove Stiffee.

    The specialist would not be my first choice for trail duty but might be made to work for the right person.
