I love my Enigma Etape. I've done several +1000 mile tours on it, many +100 mile days, use it with mudguards for my winter bike and I also use it in the fast group club runs when we are averaging ~20mph for ~70miles. I can't fault it. I also have a +£3000 carbon bike but if I could only have one then it would be the Etape. Planning a 2500 mile tour on it for 2015. Wish I could justify getting a 29inch Enigma MTB to add to the stable.

Just so you know and to clarify these two are my bikes, but they are not both Van Nicholas Yukon's, the first is actually my Van Nicholas Chinook, it's the second picture that's my Van Nicholas Yukon. Click on each link for a brief write up that may be of interest.

To be fair two of the others are not Yukon's either, the top picture is a Amazon and the lower a Chinook
