Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, well balanced, stealth dropper post
Cons: stock tyres are not grippy and are non ust, no bash guard, need carbon stickers around for protection
I purchased Spicy 516 2013 recently. It replaced Spicy 316 2011 with few upgrades on it.
First thing I've noticed is how light the bike feels comparing to the previous model. The 1.5kg difference made the bike easy to flick it around.
I've replaced tyres with UST ones which gives a lot more grip and make the bike even lighter. Also bash guard makes a lot of sense with my style of riding.
First ride on red single track in Swinley Forrest and I've learnt that the bike
feels very stable at speed and when airborne. It's so easy to jump on 2013 model. When I finished riding I had a big smile on my face.
To summarize my experience on Spicy 516, it is SO MUCH FUN!
