I bought this when On One did the SLX spec for £999 and just changed the forks to Rock Shox SID XX and fitted a thudbuster.
What a great bike to ride, supper stuff and very fast. Climbs like nothing else i have ever ridden. Wheels are a bit heavy, not surprising at the price point, so will be getting some lighter ones very soon.
For a shade under a grand, if you want a super fast, lightweight bike, this ticks so many boxes. If you can afford better forks and wheels, this is a proper xc/enduro basher.
The SLX groupset is superb, shifts are smooth and exact and have never let me down. These frames sit quite long so was glad i went for the small frame and i can happily sit on this all day with no back ache at all.
