    “Very fun!!”

    The Good:

    Perfect downhill geo. Raced A-line at Crankworx, felt solid all the way through.

    The Bad:

    Not much! If any..

    Overall Review:

    Feels exactly like a shocker, just an inch less travel. I run a Boxxer so its a little slacked out, but it rides big jumps great, and corners fast. At the same time rides the rocky rooty technical downhill like a CHAMP.

    “if this price is a complete bike than its a steal!”

    The Good:

    Demoed this bike at Trestle bike park, Rode it super hard and it just wanted more. Fast, felt good off the big jumps and drops.

    The Bad:

    price, i think this price is just for the frame, Winterpark bike shop was selling a complete for $6k

    Overall Review:

    good bike, but the price is up there, if you have the money, then buy it!
