“great trail bike”

The Good: pedals uphill as well is it descends. more slack head tube makes it downhill really well. dropper post is nice (not the best but it works)

The Bad: fox fork isn't great. i can't get full travel out of it. pretty bad vibration out of the back from the brake.

Overall Review:

overall impression of the bike is awesome in my opinion. on the trail the bike feels awesome. steep downhill and steep uphill is when the bike finds its limits (as with most AM bikes)

one of the best trail bikes i've ridden

“would be 4.5 stars...”

The Good: Awesome geometry, feels flickable/light underneath you. killer stock build. definitely a do-it-all.

The Bad: 1) 2011 models (pictured) have no rear thru axle but that has been corrected. 2) Mine has this INSANE rear brake vibration... it literally violently shakes the entire bike under hard braking. 3) FLOAT RL is a mediocre fork (improved for 2012). I never seem to get full travel 4) QR seatpost 5) needs internal routing (all specialized)

Overall Review: I've had this bike about 7 months now and have done everything from 15 mile fireroad climbs to tight, technical descents, to hitting 20' doubles. It does everything very well - not just OK, VERY well... my major complaints are listed above, the biggest of which is the lack of a rear thru-axle on 2011 models, but this has been corrected for 2012. Also, the stock avid brakes will likely drive you insane with the amount of vibration they cause under hard braking. thats just me complaining though... overall this is easily the best all around bike I've ever owned (other bikes have been Giant reign, Commencal Meta 4, Trek Remedy). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

“The Perfect Bike”

The Good: Build is superb, geo is dialed!

The Bad: The fox 32 150mm travel is awesome, but the bike is capable of more. However, the 36 might be a bit much. *Note to Fox, start making a 34 for this bike

Overall Review: I don't specialize in one area of riding, but I have ridden for a long time. I've ridden and researched many bikes from HT 29er's to DH bikes. I climb up to ride down and favor more aggressive trail/AM riding. I have ridden everything from the White rim in a day to resorts and DH tracks. This bike does everything. While not a DH bike and not a XC race bike, it can do a little of both. It climbs amazingly well and makes riding so much fun coming down. This is my favorite bike I have ever ridden and shines on just about every situation in my everyday riding. Since I can only afford one bike, this is the one I would choose every time. Even if I could afford having more than one bike, I would still choose this every time.
