Great Bike, Lightweight and Responsive

The Good:

Responsive, frame geometry, paint job is slick, handles really well

The Bad:

Haven't had a chance to find any bad it in yet.

Overall Review:

I felt really confident on my first time out on the single tracks here in the Las Vegas desert with this bike. It handles well, shifts like butter and had great responsiveness. I love it!
