Still the best choice for All Mountain

Rating:
The Good:

Weight and geometry in a single shot. This is the most versatile bike that I've ever ride, comfortable when going uphill, the best fun on trails and the total orgasm when going downhill. Great handling on curves, floating on jumps and drops. I've never seen anything like this toy.

The Bad:

If the bike equipped with the basic fork (lyrik R) it lacks of adjustability for uphill rides, not comfortable when going uphill and need to stand on pedals.

Overall Review:

My next bike: Nomad, after that: Nomad, after that: Nomad.......
