The Good: Price, components, shred-ablility, fun-ness?
The Bad: Not amazing pedal efficiancy
I demoed this bike at Canyon's resort, Utah. I actually first used it to downhill. It was fine going down hard blues and blacks. My friend was on a more expensive downhill bike, and I was beating him down and getting bigger air. The only time I had a slight problem was when I went off of a big drop, but hey! This bike wasn't made for that. Then I took it all-mountain riding. Again, it was super fun downhill, it was great uphill until I hit this really steep scree field, and the forks don't completely lock out, so I could really feel my pedal efficiany failing.
