i am thinking about getting one of these with the duc fork.
interested to know how do you find the bike ?
I find it outstanding. Rides like an ML-7, only a little 'more' in every way.

Climbs well, almost as well as the 7, and goes downhill like a madman.

However, if this is going to be your only bike, you ought to consider the ML-7. My 8 weighs about 29 lbs with stout wheels and appropriate 2.4" tires. My 7, with lighter wheels and tires can go down to about 26 lbs.

get both, if i had to choose, i would complement my hardtail with the ML8, since i can ride the hardtail for longer smoother days, and for the ruff stuff, theres 6.5" or rocking rear ride!
