This BIke is Unreal. Using the DH 150 rear drops and hi-flange Chub hubs gives the wheels unreal torsional stiffness and helps the ridiculous wheelbase gobble and crush all trail at speed. Being 6-4 makes this bike make sense. The short stem is crucial for DH handling and the pedaling character of the KS link is very impressive, it keeps the bike wanting more ups after destroying the downs.
On the other hand: CTD is under-impressive, period. This is the kind of bike that demands a 36 talas 140 ((w/20mm thru)) x29 fork.
If you are going to go fast and ride rough stuff, this is the weapon of choice. Straight line punishment of all obstacles and psychotic wheel strength add up to a crazy fun time at speed. Slow and tight? Meh, not so much the ideal choice.
The DBAIR is simply the answer. Dialed. The Angleset helps the already insane handling and geometry go completely to the dark side. 29'ers are so capable in garbage terrain that I just thought I'd see how zany we could get. Simply put: It worked. Combining the fit and ability of an XL 29'er with the stability and aggression of this build yields a pure AM speed attack monster!
