yeah I had last years model ... and it rocked !!!
This years is better yet in many details... last years front fork couldnt exite me all that much, it was working, very subtle though, this years suspension fork is MUCH better... Also I like the Magura HS 33 rim brakes... I would LOVE to have the option to use disc brakes on this bike ,, but the HS 33 are a good second choice.
I dont like this years beam saddle and the seatpost which comes with it, as it is not interchangeable with regular saddles. but thats the only mood point....
Oh by the way, you better get in line and order one right now. so You can get one of the first shipment , when it finally arrives !!!!
I rode the bike mostly on roads but also on smooth trails and it performed great .. very nimble without being tippsy and fast for sure...
