The Good: I built this bike up from a frame so I cannot speak to the stock components. I will say I love the GEO. The bike is comfortable, flickable and eats up the down as well as up. I love the way the frame looks. Mine is in blue. Compared to my aluminum bike this chromoly frame really absorbs the bumps and etc. Very fun to ride.
The Bad: I do not find anything bad about this frame some say it is heavy, others say the BB is too low, some grip that you cannot run a front derailleur.
If your looking for an all in one bike this is it. It is brawny, hardcore and does everything really well from XC, Trail to All mountain. It shines on downhill and technical sections. The GEO places your weight more towards the center rear rather than like an XC bike where your weight is shifted towards the front. This bike is really really fun to ride and to me that is what is most important me.
