I would love to ride one. They're just so crazy and i feel like ill bend and break it in half but it would be neay to try
Really, they just feel like a regular hardtail with slightly flexy tubing. You don't even notice the flexboard movement. What is special about the ride is the way the sling-movement kicks the bike forward. You find yourself taking familiar sections of trail much faster than normal. This is especially noticeable on flat, winding sections and up climbs. The rear wheel hooks up very well on steep climbs. The older, all-steel boom-tube series of Slingshots were the lightest. (or the ti ones, if you could ever find one) Best to look for one of those. The newer made-in-the -orient frames are needlessly heavy and overbuilt. (and hideously ugly)
