    So far so good...

    The Good:

    Awesome geometry for jumping, and some downhill... I got it for Christmas 2012... So far so good.

    The Bad:

    Not too happy with the fork... It's a coil fork, so I wish it came with a stiffer coil... I'm gonna get a stiffer one though. I bottomed out on a 1-2 foot drop... :/

    Overall Review:

    It's a great bike! So far so good! I wish they were still putting Fox Forks on them though... An air fork would be better, I think...
