I love this bike. My last 3 bikes have been SC Hecklers and this one just blows doors on them. I hate leaving reviews for several reasons, but when I noticed that nobody has come forth about this bike, I felt it my duty to end the silence. I climb with it I rip down with it and it tips the scales @ 28lbs.! DB, at one time was the best. Then something hapened and they were crap. Now they have reinvented themselves and are most likely the most underrated bike out there. Lots of deals out there for this one. For sure worth a look.
