I recently purchased this bike after debating between several.One of the best decisions Ive ever made! It has everything riders loved about the alloy frame but in a lighter,stiffer and more agile version. For only having 100mm of travel the bike actually handles gnarly terrain extremely well, due largely to the slightly slacker head angle. With the lower bottom bracket and shorter chain stays this bike descends extremely fast and is very acrobatic when picking lines.Another amazing component to this bike is the DW-Link suspension. Its a bit stiffer than other suspension offerings by other brands but the suspension only works when you need it to giving it a hardtail like feel when climbing- anti squat too. The icing on the cake is the X01- 1x11 drivetrain which is an awesome compliment to this frame-light weight,very quiet and say good bye to throwing chains! All in all this is a great all around bike. It can certainly be very effective as a race bike yet comfortable enough for long, epic rides with your buddies on the weekend. Its definitely my choice for this season and if you have the means I highly recommend picking one up.
