Earlier today I got a chance to see the new 2009 DT Mini and I have to admit it looks sharp and cool, the new handle post is looking good and much better than the 2008. The owner of the DT wasn't really tall and the riding position seems to be really comfortable.... I didn't like the color, too bad DT doesn't offer another option to choose from.... Normally, I don't choose bikes by their color but the greenish was kind of a turnoff.
Bottom line: great bike for not a lot of $$$.
