Update: The M9 has been taking punishment all Spring and now into the Summer. I've VERY impressed with the build quality of both the bike and components that came on it. If you are looking for a bike that loves blitzing down the trail like a freight train, this is the bike for you. Cant say enough great things about how this bike elevates your game. After riding it for a month I now have a banging girlfriend, amazing job, my muscles grew to twice there normal size and I won the lottery. Long story short, buy the M9.. it will change your life.
