“Really Good Bike”

The Good: This bike all around has a pretty simple geometry to understand. Stock it comes with okay components but if you decided to upgrade the bike, it is one of those bikes that turns out to look beautiful. The geometry is really noticeable on the trail making it smoother than other bikes. The Head angel is pretty steep looking and there is also a screw which you switch down on the rear shock mount that changes the bikes geometry by a few degrees, this is really helpful and noticeable when you are free-riding and jumping. The bike feels pretty solid and is set up pretty well. It is hand made which is cool to say and also it is made in California, The bikes looks great and feels great. AND also is supper light weight.

The Bad: Some of the bads are hard to think of, but i have noticed a few things. Well one of them is that the bike makes a creaking sound which is concerning to me but i don't think it is anything major. Also it scratches really easy.

Overall Review:

Overall the bike is very good, i love it and it is the best bike that i have owned yet. I wouldrecommend the bike to anyone and would make a project bike out of it.
