Almost perfect!

Rating:
The Good:

Corners on rails, smooth over all bumps, built like a tank

The Bad:

a little heavy, bearings too exposed creating a lot of issues in wet weather, not all shocks fit, needs to come in an extra large, not the best peddler

Overall Review:

Lets get the bad out of the way, not the best in wet weather would benefit from better bearings(Enduro), the Roco air will not fit in the frame, and it bobs a bit during pedaling, but don't let that fool you it is still the BEST bike I've ever ridden, it will out corner any bike on the market, and is insanely smooth over bumps, not to mention its practically bombproof. Really wish it came in an extra large though, I'm 6'2 and even though I'm not really cramped i just don't have the confidence to plow a section like on my old frame which was almost another inch longer.
