Bike Science, a Legend dealer based in Bristol, recently sent their demo HT7.5 over to road.cc for one of their guys to review.
The review is now online, and boy do they like the bike! What is especially interesting is that despite being completely taken with the Legend, they ‘only’ give it an overall mark of 4.5 out of 5. However, further reading reveals that the reviewer would have given it 10/10 but marked it down to 9/10 – “I’d be prepared to give this a bike 10/10 for performance, but in the knowledge of the two models above it (the HT 9.5 and HT 10.5) I’m wondering if they’re even better. The HT 7.5 is a stunning bike, easily one of the best riding bikes I’ve ever ridden.”
So it looks like he’s marked it down to give him room to mark the 9.5 and 10.5 higher (assuming he gets to ride one)! It does make me shudder at how good the 9.5 is going to be, if the review of the 7.5 is anything to go by. Despite currently saving all I can to get my dream HT9.5, I think I might have to devise some more cunning plans to raise the money to get it quicker!
