“Awesome (2011 version)”

The Good: Climbs extremely well, Propedal works very efficiently with the FSR suspension, Decends incredibly, ISCG tabs, the fork can be internally lowered to 140 or 130. Has cable guides for a dropper post. The XL weighs in at 31.25lbs. Despite what I expected with white grips, they clean very well.

The Bad: Not really much, comes with X5 shifters which I promptly replaced with some X7's, but only because I had some extras. I'm sure the X.5s would've handled fine

Overall Review: Climbs well. This is the most underrated bike out there. I'd put this up against any 3-4 grand bike any day. Since my riding style caters more to the downhills, The 90mm stem was a bit awkward when I wanted to manual or jump so I put a 40mm on it and now it's perfect. Upgrades so far: X7 shifters 40mm Hussefelt Stem Funn Fatboy Bar (same dimensions as the Specialized one, but it's stronger and lighter despite it being a freeride bar)
