    The Good:

    Nice and sleek frame design with beautiful paint. Supple and predictive rear end. Eat ups big hits and float over small bumps. Stable at high speed and turns. Good head angle cheap...i guess?

    The Bad:

    Paint chips off easily. Not the lightest but its still very light. Cable rubs terribly at the rocker arms. Not the best cable routing.

    Overall Review:

    It is a stable yet playful bike. You could take it to a competition and race it or just bring it to a bike park and shred. Really easy to control in mid-air and on ground. Stable at rough, technical tracks and smooth and jumpy tracks. One of the best looking bike paint out there. Great spec for the money.
