A lot of bike for the money

The Good:

Get fairly decent spec for a low price
nice geometry - bombs the descents and climbs pretty well
wide handlebars as standard is a bonus

The Bad:

No lockout on the rear shock is a bit annoying

Overall Review:

After buying this as an upgrade to my norco fluid dualy, i noticed the difference straight away. I was incredibly suprised to see that it climbed better than the fluid as it was heavier with more aggressive travel/geometry. No matter what i have thrown at the bike it has eaten it all up. I would definitely recommend this bike.
