The bike itself isn't a bad bike, and if the bike pictured is the one you get, it's a really good deal. But, the description doesn't match the picture. Caveat Emptor! The pic shows XTR cranks, and the description states LX/XT.
The suspension design is a 4-bar linkage, but note that the rear pivot is on the seat stay, not the chain stay, so it's not a Horst Linkage, (not fully active). This design will "brake jack" while applying the brake on descents, the bike will buck!
Don't know about the AWD aspects.
