The Good:

goes down faster than madonna at a naval base

The Bad:

comes with elixer brakes.....why

Overall Review:

Descends, jumps, and corners well, great park bike, not half bad in tight turns on tech trails. I like the low leverage ratio, easy to tune, bearings are huge, main pivot is 25mm. Changed the brakes to shimano zee and works awesome, the stock brakes are the only weak link with this bike. The bike seems a bit heavy at first but just add speed and it just rips! Scott has this bike dialed!!

like a tank :D

The Good:

this bike is as solid as a bike can be, it just gives you that extra bit of confidence, also the huge amount of suspension makes it a wonderfull bike.

The Bad:

quite heavy

Overall Review:

this is just an amazing bike, but it just isn't a race winner, if you don't race, you really should buy this bike
