It isn't under everyone's saddle and not being pedaled by every biker.

Awesome. This is the one bike that you do need.

The Good:

Stiff, responsive, durable. This bike is a machine and will do it all.

The Bad:

None. I have not found any bad things with this bike in the year and a half that I have been riding it.

Overall Review:

If you can only have or only want one bike, then this is it. This bike is so very stiff and responsive. It climbs great and also does the same on the downhill. It is very durable and Santa Cruz has done an excellent job with this bike. You will not find a stiffer 6" travel bike on the market. I also like that Santa Cruz makes this and their other bikes very user serviceable. I love this bike and will stick with it for a very long time.
