I brought my Specialized about 2 years ago. The bike is serviced regularly at the Ballito Specialized Store. I ride about 10 to 14 hours per week of-road in the Valley of a Thousand Hills. Rides are normally between 40~50km with average total ascent of about 800m.
The bike is a top performer both on climbs and in the single track. A great investment!!
The bike is fitted with Magura MT8 brakes which perform extremely well with great feel.
