Strengths:    Looks as good as it works. DW spensin' and geometry. So plush, little bob, agile not twitchy. This bike deserves more reviews. Keeps chugging past your stalled out buddy in the rough stuff.


Weaknesses:    Yeah brakes are noisy and the shifters are meh. No idea what the front hub is and I have never needed to adjust the XT rr. hub btw.
Not so light @ 30lbs.


Bottom Line:   
Lots of value in this bike. It simply does everything so well. It doesn't give all the travel up out back, so no bottoming and it feels as plush as a 6". The thing rails and 120mm is part of the formula. Never will see one in SoCal I imagine. Got a couple sexy bike comments on the trail.
With 650b rims, WOW, it rolls just as fast as a 29er, just not quite as good roll-over. So stable in G-out turns I just smile. Effortlessly holds a line. Same with attacking rough climbs. Inspiring DH manners too. It'll be a couple years before an equal 650b specific bike is sold, so I'm stoked on this bikes performance and value.

Strengths:    Fast and easy to ride, reliable bearings with lifetime warranty, good Fox forks and rear shock.

Weaknesses:    Hayes brakes are noisy and not easy to setup, compared to avids or shimano, WTB tyes wear quickly and seem to be bad in the dry, wet,mud or hardpack!, shimano hubs are low end and need constant adjustment.

Bottom Line:   
Very good bike and easy to ride, but you would be better off spending the extra and getting the 5.6 with the better wheels brakes and forks.

Just won a bid for 2010 Mount Vision 5.7 L

It's a demo unit. I have not ridden one. I simply read reviews and know that it accepts 650b conversion. I almost went 29'er, hence the 650b requirement. Funny, I spent the same amount on a used Titus RacerX almost 10 years ago. Under $1500! The RX has those old Magura hydros and a WB SC90 f ... Read More »
