Bottom Line:   
This bike is very cool. I find myself riding smoothe and fast. The bike soaks up the hits big and small. It's really easy to change the geometry, but I found a great position for our tight eastern singletrack and have left it there. It did take a while to set it up. The Syntace bar and stem combo, the air shock pressure, rear shock position all are adjustable, and it took a while to set it up. The lockout on the lefty is incredible. 4" travel to no travel at the push of a button. The fox vanilla rc has a compression lock out as well. The stem adjusts to let me ride comfy with the kids on the bike path, and flat out on the trails with the guys. A very excellent bike. Last week I augered in and bent the handlebar. Syntace sent me a crash replacement right away-$29 including next day shipping! Swapped it out myself in about 15 minutes. Some folks say the Coda Expert disc brakes are less that great, but I have had no problems with them at all. Great modulation and they have more power thatn I need. I am used to XT V brakes and these are a big improvement. If you only can get one bike and like to ride alot of different terrain this is the bike for you. Set it up slack and you have a great downhill and fire roads bike, set it up steep and it's an wonderful X-C ride. I give it 4 for value -it is expensive after all, but a very cool ride overall-5 big ones
