Specialized Pitch Pro
Having said on countless occasions that I’m a die-hard hardtail fan, after a trip to Wales in Feb this year and trying to keep up with others on full-sussers, I was convinced I needed to think a bit more laterally!

With such a great spec out of the box, the Pitch was an absolute bargain and I took heart in the many great press reviews. At the money it’s cost me, I really don’t need to feel guilty about it being my plaything so the conscience is relatively clear.
