I bought a Neo Cross and then "had to get" one of these for herself and there's a couple of things missing in this review. The range is astonishing; I doubt the claimed 100+ m but I think you'll get pretty close to it. And the front hub dynamo powered lights which have a big enough capacitor to stay on whilst stopped. It's a pretty comfortable seat too which does get a mention.
Great bike but for sheer pleasure the Neo is better. You appreciate Neo's disc brakes compared with the rim Magura brakes when stopping from speed.
