No Trail too Hard
Rating:
The Good
This is a great all around bike. I have rode this bike in some decent downhill trails in Pennsylvania and I haven't had any problem on technical climbs and descents. I can still kill climbs going up and also can handle heavy descents in the same ride. The brakes perform great, makes it easy to get that front wheel up.
The Bad
No ICGS tabs, Stock Pedals are garbage. Stem is too long.
Overall Review:

Overall this bike is a great do it all bike. I've done some nice DH on it as well as alot of climbing. Its quick in the corners and is very easy to manuver in tight singletrack. I mostly ride enduro. So far this bike has been everything I need for the way I ride. I'd like for it to have ICGS tabs but that can be remedied with an aftermarket mount from Clutch. The first thing I changed out was the stock pedals. I ditched them for the Crank Bros. Mallet DH. Another great upgrade is to replace the bushing in the top eye of the shock with needle bearings from AWS. It makes the actuation of the shock so much smoother. I can hardly feel the chudder on the trail anymore. It makes the back end very responsive. Overall this bike is great. I'd reccomend it to anyone. Granted it could use a few initial upgrades but overall for the money its hard to beat.
