Bottom Line:   
I thought it best to leave writing a review for this bike after I had ridden it a number of times. Well its been and had two weeks in the alps up and down dale on xc mega routes to super techy downhill descents.
It looks great, and rides great as long as you are capable of riding a bike like this.
Not as good DH as my 66 patriot but only cos its different kinda bike.
I am 5"11 and ride a 15 incher cos I swap bikes with my other half and she is smaller, so dont worry its a bike for descending and not for uphill. Even though it can, up hill riding is in the legs not the bike! If you cant ride up hill then ride your bike more.

Its lots of fun, would I buy another one? yes it is and probably not as there will be a new funner/funnier version from the boys in Halifax when I get rid of this in 2 years and buy another.

Have fun riding the Blood its great.
