I love my bike, but I hate the complicated suspension with it's equilink (T-bone) part, as the bushings are a pain to remove and replace.
Felt have nailed the pedal bob with the equilink, but it only lasts 7-8 months and it's buggered and needs new bushings.
The bearings are easier to do, but it has so many of the damn things !

Protein tub bike stand, and tiny shed completes the difficulty level, it's a black for sure lol !

You have a point Threevok, the servicing is a lot easier. But, when I'm gliding over really rough stuff, and my back/knees are not creaking from the constant battering, and instead I am smiling at the plushness, I will think of you matey !
