Overall Review:

I have had my Superfly AL for about a month now and I must say that I have been trying to kill it. Fell in about 2 feet of mud the other day and it still finished the additional 3 miles of my ride with hardly any hiccups.   The chain has only come off once, but I blame myself since I shifted way too fast while pedaling.  Have gone off a couple of high jumps at high speed and have no evidence of damage.  I love the Fox shocks, which have been removed from the 2013 version and replaced with the RockShox.  I see it as a mistake, but the higher ups at Trek know their stuff.  So overall.  I would buy it again.
