I have ridden other all mountain bikes( specialized enduro and kona process) these are both great bikes but you can tell they are more DH focused( i realize all mountain bikes are about climbing up to bomb down) and they felt big an sligish climbing. The trail fox is much lighter then most other bikes in its class which helps with the climb. Between the light weight frame and fox pro pedal it climbs like a mountain goat. My set up weighs in at 27 lb, i upgraded to easton hubs and rims to loose a couple of pounds. You might think that it lost some downhillness since it climbs so well but its quite the oppisite. My downhill bike is the pivot pheonix( also a sick bike) and the trail fox doesnt get left behind too far, of course the pheonix takes drops and steep technical stuff better, but its a full on downhill bike. So all in all it is the perfect comprimise of climbing and decending. The bike is also a good deal too. Mine is a 2012 modle that i bought for $1500 at colorado backcountry biker in fruita colorado. If you can find a left over retail bike or a slightly used one BUY IT!!!!
After a few years of not riding, I felt the urge to get back into riding to compliment my hiking & snowshoeing as mechanisms to: 1) stay in shape and 2) access unique photography locations to support my photography business.
