Familiarity: I've used it several times

This may be the most fun on a bike I've ever had. If you know how to handle a bike and don't require gobs of travel to compensate for your lack of skills, this bike is a winner.

Anyone who rates this bike poorly because it wasn't enough bike is a moron. It's 130mm of rear travel. It is what it is.

It's not going to win you any xc races and its not a downhill bike. It's a bad arss every mans trail bike that is a blast to ride. The short cs and 66.8 ht angle with plus size tires felt so balanced on everything; Climbs, tight trails, chunk, downhill, and oh my god the cornering!! This thing corners like I'm on a roller coaster!! So confidence inspiring!

The only time I felt like I didn't have enough bike was when taking 3 to 4 foot drops clumsy. There is an art to landing a bike and if you stiffen up your body, lock your knees, and over grip, you'll experience a few rough landings.

You could go more travel and a steeper head angle but I think you'd be giving up so much that this bike offers.

Smith finally put out some decent frames for people in their 30's. The porn, retro, too cool for school frames were really starting to tick me off and I thought I was going to have to switch brands until this style came out. These feel great, look great, and seem to be super durable. If you liked the older style Smith frames you're going to love these!! Style and features have been updated and the quality is still there. Nice Job Smith!
