Really appreciate the thoroughness of this review and providing an alternative perspective to Mike Levy's somewhat dismissive opinion of the bike and gearboxes generally on PB.

I have seen some pretty great builds here in Rotorua and some are definitely getting quite light (One I know is around the 14.5kg mark with a Push coil shock).

The suspension performance is pretty amazing on these bikes and certainly puts the bike in a class that is a lot better than just "good".

I guess the takeaways are that Pinion gearboxes have quite low POE so you need to run a really pricey hub to counter the low engagement. I have also seen other pinions seeping oil, so this is obviously a common occurance and perhaps the 10,000km service interval is overreaching somewhat. It also seems like the tensioner is still a bit crude and needs refinement.

What I would say is that in my limited experience with the bike they seem ideal for a weekend warrior like myself, who digs the tech natural trails and doesn't mind grinding up the fire roads.

If my budget doubled overnight and they started making them in aluminium I'd be totally all over it.

Oh, and its pronounced Tani-fa not ta-Nefa.

Slight cavitation in the piston assembly meant that it 'clunked' at about 40% sag when it was descend mode. Sure it had less pedal bob out of the saddle in climb mode but TBH I think it is a gimmick. Wasn't a fan of the added complication of having to knock it into descend mode at the top of the climb. I forgot to do it in a few stage races and it killed my vibe. Nah, swapped it out. Its nonsense. Have done plenty of big alpine climbs without needing it too.
