The GT HT with semi slicks is used for riding out of town on the roads and up into the moors (Kepwick, Osmotherley etc).
The Cube is used for general trail riding and red routes.
And I save the Orange five AM for the tasty black routes Cool

Ooooooo get you with 3 bikes Wink

I'd fancy a blast on the Orange, the more I see these the more I like them.
Congrats on a fine collection.

A few upgrades to the Cube.

Went for the cheaper option on the dropper post (KSi900) @ 160. I have a reverb on the five and find that the button on the bars is not that great so am going to try this one with the lever under the seat (will replace the quick release eventually):


Superstar Ultra Mags:


Superstar floating rotars:


And finally a set of Marzocchi Corsa's 120mm replacing my 100mm Fox's. Never been 100% happy with the angles on the Cube, so after a shorter stem and riser bars the forks just make it feel a touch more relaxed which is how I like it:


Obligatory pic in all her glory:
