I realised I was wearing out my MTB on the roads Sunday morning exercise runs of 10 - 15 miles so considered a hybrid with a road bike bias. No point in too much of an overlap with the MTB. Tried out the basic model and it felt very lively but very harsh. I thought I might as well try the Elite which is the more expensive model with the carbon forks expecting not much difference (only perhaps to the weight) but it was a revelation. MUCH smoother. I don't worry too much about drain covers etc and the flat bars are great for me. It is great fun and MUCH more efficient on the road without the font suspension and the narrower tyres @ 100 psi! Now use it for commuting and save the MTB for off road only. It feels so sluggish in comparison on road.
