Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing - for publications such as Mountain Biking UK and Flow magazine - for as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories.

Looks like a good frame, and Sora is robust, though a little more effort into some lower gear options would have been welcome, especially on rougher tracks with decent gradients. Shame about 'UK market price', being actually higher in £ than the dollar value; not that competitive IMO.

Shame about the likely price in £ being even higher than the dollar value.  Sora is pretty robust, but a tad low spec, given the competition at this price point.  Road spec drivetrain doesn't really cut the mustard, with regard to low gears needed for a fair bit of gravelly rough stuff imo.
