    “Amazingly fast and stable”

    The Good: Looks amazing, paint job is of high quality Picks up speed like no other bike I have ridden Suspension action is very smooth Great through corners and rough technical sections Adjustments are a great feature (especially wheelbase/chainstay length I find)

    The Bad: Not the greatest bike for popping of every dirt mound and playing around (sure it can be set up to be however) A little expensive Angleset can make noises (took a little while to fix)

    Overall Review:

    This bike has vastly improved my confidence and speed through fast and rough sections where I used to suffer.It excels on fast rough tracks and I cannot wait to get over to Canada and some tracks with more elevation to really get it in its element. Although its fairly expensive for a frame you get an amazing looking bike which is obviously of high quality. Even when injured this bike is great, just looking at it makes you happy and more eager to ride it again.
