Additional Info I built this bike up in 2011 and since then it has literally been there and done it all. From high country enduro racing, Jedi-slalom tricks, slopestyle booters, bike park roosting, desert rock bashing.. You name it, I've done it and this bike loved every bit of it. With 5" of extremely sturdy air suspenders, this bike would go anywhere except for straight up. In fact, it climbed pretty horribly - mostly due to the 15.5 inch chain stays and slack seat tube. Once I got used to the very small window between wheelie and wheel spin I actually really enjoyed taking this bike for long, epic trail rides. Its light and compact yet stable, I have never had more fun on a trail. It will roll back into a manual just by thinking about it. The 160mm fork should be dropped to 130mm. I didn't do it because I enjoyed it so much as it was. Although I look back and regret that decision because it would have been even better with a slightly lower bar height... Live-and-learn I guess.
