    Ballin' on a budget

    The Good:

    Great starter bike with a great price point, super grippy Specialized Butcher DH tires

    The Bad:

    Bike is heavy, with a low end fork

    Overall Review:

    If you are looking for a first DH bike like myself, this is the bike for you. This bike bombs down DH runs, and is perfect on the jump trails such as Livewire at Northstar Bike Park. The only problem is that the bike is rather heavy. This is because of the Budget fork and Possibly the rims. The Fork is a RockShox Domain Dual Crown. The fork is heavy and has few adjustments. This bike is great for me but you might want to upgrade certain parts like the fork.
