I totally agree that 3T wheels and bearings suck - I've had to try to work on some on a client's bike and I've been very un-impressed. However, this doesn't affect my opinion of 3T's other products; just stay away from their wheels. Regarding this bike, it sounds like a standard hardtail MTB with a suspension fork would easily do most of what this bike is designed to do much better and much cheaper.

So if, hypothetically, you had had two pairs of 3T wheels and the proprietary bearings on both back wheels had failed and 3T had ignored you to the extent that you had to go and buy some new non-3T wheels, would you vow never to buy 3T again, or splurge £7k on a 3T bike?
