It is a very solid platform and has most a freerider would want in a bike. This bike will take a beating and has made a name for itself in the MTB world as worthy steed. Many bike parks use stinkys for rentals as they a strong and have good value. Another Nice feature about the deluxe is it has the DOPE feature which helps on the downhill breaking by eliminating brake jack. The forks is good as well with both rebound and compression adjust as well as the rear shock but the rear is limited to the low-speed comp(small bumps). So this rig has the brain for the bumps. Another thing is the brakes and the stroker Aces, these have been regarded as a very good DH brake that has the power and still has modulation rather than on-off pull you find on other brakes. As for the drive train, it comes with the new shadow tech and an ethirteen chainguide. Another nice thing is the green color(one of the better decals in the 2009 line for me).

I would buy it hands down if put to the choice, but to really know if it is for you or not is demo it. That way you get a feel for how your body matches the bike. So get out there and have fun with your demo and try out other bikes just to see how it compares. Also read some reviews to on the fork, shock, and the bike itself. Post up anymore question you may have here or ask your lbs.
