Might just be me being a dunce, but is it 170mm travel, adjustable to 135?
Also, sorry to compare to a stumpy, but the main reason I won;t buy a stumpjumper, is because of the proprietary shock mount. Will you be able to mount any other after-market shocks on this?

Good response mxnate. I had a look at that site and I must say I'm really enjoying reading it!

So I've noticed on a few Twitter posts (and some biking videos like Follow me) that quite a few riders surf as well. I've noticed Greg Minnaar, Justin Leov, Matt Hunter, Sven Martin etc. all also share the same passion. I actually started Downhilling,

Perfection

Rating:

The Good: Suspension, light yet durable

The Bad: None that comes to mind

Overall: The perspective of a Joe Bloggs rider: It's hard trying to give a unbiased review of the bike. I'm sure 99% of people who have spent a large amount of money will recommend what they bought to someone else, purely I guess to justify money spent. I'll try and give you as many facts as possible. After a year's worth of use, the bike is in absolute top notch condition. Linkages, bearings, pivots etc are all sweet. The stickers and decals are peeling here and there, but that's it. It's super low maintenance and do not need for a service at all yet. Given that I spent a few weeks in the Alps and rode it as much as I possibly could, there is still no sign of it looking and acting like a second hand bike. I'm 5.9' and got the small, as it's quite a long bike to begin with. As a point of reference, I always ride "Medium" bikes and this fits me perfectly. I'm heavier than what is classified I guess as a rider who rides a size small, so needed to get a heavier spring that came with it. I weigh 80 Kilograms without gear on (178 Pounds ) - the spring I have is the 200lbs spring. The ride is hard to put your finger on, as it's neither the skippy bike nor is it a plough that is the Commencal. I wouldn't say that it's an inbetweener either. It has a different feel to it which can has been best described by Dirt mag as "it seperates you, the rider, from the ground" What I mean and interpret Dirts words is that the suspension works so very efficiently and only gives you the travel you need for the current situation you find yourself in, it just doesnt over or under react at any point The bike tracks the ground so well and the back wheel sticks to the ground like poop to a woollen blanket. Losing traction in your rear is just a worry of the past. One thing that I can unequivocally say, is that this bike pedals better than any other downhill bike. This is the very first thing every single person who had a bit of a car park bounce on my bike said. There is Zero pedal bob, none. All in all, there is no other bike would rather ride and I dont see myself gettin anything else any time soon. I would recommend getting the BOS shock with it or the CCDB to get the most out of it (can't comment on the RC4). The low leverage is insane. the small bumps and the big bumps just completely get smoothed out and corners are minced meat with this badboy. So in summary... it's light, it's strong, it's fun, it's low maintenance, it's rare and not many people around you will be on the same thing, the guys at Morewood are Ace to deal with. I couldnt be happier with my Makulu purchase ... but like I said... im baised.
