    I don't get this brand at all, just seems really dated, you can only dress things up so much, weight is good for what looks like a 90s Bender sender, love the Schleyer but meh!
    Why cant bike companies who do MtB route the cables properly, ya don't put cables underneath in the crap mud and rocks and dirt, just unacceptable in todays stds, DH bikes are supposed to get dirte not sit on show room floors where that feature belongs!
