    When you look at this bike...

    ...whats the first thing that comes to mind? If the designer asked you for "feedback" what would you say?

    Looks like a DH hardtail to me... 24" double tracks (i think 24), nice fat downhill tires. Fork should be a dual crown...

    An MTB for Oompah Loompahs! It looks tiny not to mention ugly. You asked.

    CHEERS.

    Great bike. I would love to have it, probably would change the fork.

    It looks way out of proportion to me, but I ride a really long FS XC bike.

    I have heard good things about the hydro discs, but I have the avid mechs, and I have never felt like I needed anything more.

    The smaller things on the bike are nice like the chain guide and rims.
    But the frame looks abit too beefy for a dirtjumping kinda bike. I just dont like beefy jumpers.
    Also the fork is abit dodgy. I'm not sure if its a stance or a sherman by the pic. But i definetly recommend a marzocchi dirt jumper 1 or 2 fork for it cos of the big drop outs and crown on them.

    24 Inch wheels are used all the time over here for dirt jumping, ive heard that on the other side of the pond 26 is used more...

    Too me it looks nice, i love shermans anyway, and the 24 inch wheels will make it very nice in the air, as Madman said, a DH hardtail..
