You'll enjoy it. My 620 has been well worth it. Except I've had more offs since August than in 15 years of tri racing & training . Certainly been worthwhile the last few weeks when we've had icy starts, so I've been out on the mountains on the Felt rather than risking the ice on the roads. Been great finding new trails over our local hills, that were too far to run over.

Bit late now but halfords are doing the carrera vengeance on offer for the 12 days of Christmas , ??280 instead of ??450 , don't let the name put you off as they're a great bike carrera , I have the fury and its done all black runs in every trail centre in the uk and I've never had one single problem with it . The vengeance isn't much different to the fury tbh

Yeah. I got a Kraken SE secondhand for £170 about 6 years ago. Think it was about £600 new at the time. Have ridden it into the ground and commuted through two winters and the only thing it's ever needed was new crank bearings and a gear selector thingy replacing. Still going on the original tyres which seem to be pretty much indestructible.
