Overall Review:

Been riding this for 2 years.

It is a good trail bike out of the box. However, I feel that the stiff chassis begs rowdier riding.

The steering is super precise and it never feels like the bike would not handle the abuse. I have been jumping all the biggest stuff there is around where I live.

For the majority of time I have had a 180 mm air spring in the fork I have fitted a 230x65 Super Deluxe coil and put the flipchip in the low position. This gives good bb hight ~165-170mm in the rear and a slacker hieadangle. Now the bike is fit for enduro. The leverage ratio is a bit too linear for a coil in my opinion, but my preference is more progressive than the average rider. And HATE bottoming out. Therefore Ia have opted for a stiffer spring (400) which gives about 23% sag for me.

Do not like the stock shock, but it is rideable. I got used to it within a month, but a conventional shock is better, and i do not miss the pedaling platform of the Re:Aktiv valve.

The main pivot bearing needs changing every now and then and while the knockblock doesnt hinder turning in my view, I have broken quite a few while washing out in turns. So keep at least 1 spare knockblock around.

Overall I have been quite happy, and don't know what bike to try next. The character of this one has no big flaws, which is not the case for every bike.
