Overall Review:

I have been warming up to this bike on several epic bike rides including Big Sky bike park, Buffalo Creek Colorado, and Moab, Utah after selling my Santa Cruz Hightower and I am impressed. The bike is so pretty and expensive that I feel the need to injure myself vs hurting the bike. I must say I wasn’t a fan of either 29er or 27+, both of which I ran on the Hightower. 27.5 is my vote for best all around wheel size(stronger wheels, less tire roll than 27+, and lively quick handling). The Lefty Supermax 140 is awesome (buttery smooth, stiff, and sure tracking.) As far as components you can’t beat the spec on the Black Inc version and the rear shock is amazing. With the flip of a switch you can have two completely different bikes. This may be three year old technology but I think more of it than my previous current technology
