1 month review

182.5 kilometres ridden in 4 weeks under "social distancing" laws. Two black trails (Aussie black = Northern Hemisphere blue) ridden albeit cautiously.

The Good:

Climbs excellent & accelerates well
Really nimble & stable feel
Build quality great
Threaded bottom bracket!
Low centre if gravity
Low standover
Plenty of tyre clearance
Perfect bike for Australias watered down trail networks

The Bad:

Difficult to clean shock area
Decal kit not including headtube logo & inside rear triangle so they don't match 🤣
Using a Shotgun Seat has already damaged the main RH sticker on the 2nd mount.

Overall Review:

This bike should easily handle enduro racing, then will need some weight shed off (through tyres, seat, fork) to switch to an XC racer. I plan to use it this way (& plan to podium at some stage).

I may have been lucky but mine arrived to Australia 2-3 weeks early (in the peak of a global pandemic lock down)
