low CoG makes corning easier

Rating:
The Good:

1. Low CoG 2. Plenty slack without it being stupid 3. Holds a line but not a plow bike 4. rails corners 5. Ti goodies 6. non-tapered HT 7. easily built under 40lbs 8. swoopy tube free

The Bad:

1. not very poppy off lippy jumps 2. more simple color options

Overall Review:

The bike is in very fun to ride. I've had it for 2 seasons now and have been able to compare it to a few other solid DH frames out there. I can say that the legend out shines many of them.

The Good:

Great Bike. Very stable and centered. Tracks great and responds to rider control / movement very well. Low bottom bracket = great cornering!

The Bad:

Makes you want to ride really fast - makes you ride outside your comfort zone - not a bad thing at all! just had to put something here.

Overall Review:

Im a happy and proud owner of one and I think this bike is amazing! I would suggest this bike to anyone!
