Additional Info Custom Taniwha by Cycle Monkey, Zerode's US Distributor. This bike gets ridden on technical terrain all over the US, ranging from high alpine backcountry rides to bikepark use and the occasional DH race. I've been most amazed by the bike's incredible traction and stable, yet playful descending feel, although the suberb pedaling efficiency comes in as a close second... My only real complaint with the build is the 150mm dropper - I'm a lanky boy and could easily get a few more inches out of the frame. I'll probably remedy the situation with a 185mm dropper from Bike Yoke. Happy to answer any questions in the comments!
