    Strengths:    Felt fast while riding. Crisp shifting. Good suspension.

    Weaknesses:    Felt heavy to lift. Position is more XC than trail. The back tire seems far behind like a 29er.

    Bottom Line:   
    I rented one in Sedona and rode the Slim Shady trail, which has a little of everything. The bike is a little heavy but does feel faster on the trail. The thumb lockout is a nice touch to have but in reality I only used it once. My only complaint is that it feels long and the body position puts the rider in a more xc position instead of a more relaxed trail position.

    Strengths:    Great bike climbs really good and it really takes the descents, drops, gaps, etc
    I really enjoy it but I made some upgrade on it....the frame is set for upgrade to enjoy it more.


    Weaknesses:    No shadow RD, DT m3 rear shock (swap to fox), dropout 135x5mm, no iscg 05 come on!!!

    Bottom Line:   
    Its a really good bike I made some upgrade on it.......
    Changed front Hub for XT and 200 rotor, rear hub shimano zee with 142x12mm dropouts rotor 200mm, renthal handlebar and truvativ 40mm stem, rear derailleur shimano zee, mrp bashguard and now its 2x10 and a dropper post....and the most important swapped the rear shock for a Fox float CTD 2014 and changed both suspension to manual cdt lever so the twinlock is out....2 less cables on my genius.

    After all this the bike rules its really a great all mountain, trail, enduro machine.........I paid 2900 for the bike and the frame its really set up for upgrades it takes drops from 6-9 feet with no problem.

    Strengths:    This bike seems more nimble, yet allows for the comfort to exist that I felt on a 29er. Rider confidence and bike ability match nicely here.
    Lock out - thumb control


    Weaknesses:    hmmm.... none yet

    Bottom Line:   
    Less than 50 miles on bike so far, but I have never been on such an enjoyable ride before. Looking forward to many more miles on this bike. Try one - you might really really enjoy it. I found mine at Eastern Panhandle Bicycle Company... bought the last one. :-)
