Great all-round FR rig

The Good:

Dialled geometry, sturdy build, will take a front deraileur and the straight, uninterrupted seat-tube helps get the saddle in the right position for pedalling, great with a Totem/66 for FR-applications, or run it with a DC (Boxxer, 40, 888) for a more DH-oriented build (that can still be pedalled around if you need to). Great jumper and a well balanced bike altogether.

The Bad:

Quite short in the TT, so if you don't like that then stay away. Even the L is less than 600mm... It is not extra-ordinarily light either (but you get what you pay for - in this case it is STRENGTH...).

Overall Review:

Fantastic choice for a do-it-all-in-one-bike scenario. With a light build it can deal with AM riding (although a bit too short for a good pedalling position), with a heavy build it is a full-on FR rig. Dialled geo, real fun to ride. Great jumper, can take lots of abuse. Deals with DH as well, although it is nor as slack nor as low as a full-on DH rig, so a bit more tiwtchy through the rough. Buy it if you have outgrown your enduro/AM bike, but still want something you can manage some pedalling/climbing with. Oh and did I mention the dialled Morewood geo? :-)
