...I hated the thing. Total crap for climbing, I had to have my nose 2 inches from the bars to keep the front wheel from coming up on every pedal-stroke - The cockpit felt ridiculously short (I rented a 19" - I'm 5'11.5)...The first part of the ride (Tahoe Flume) was lots of climbing so I waited for the descent to pass judgement. And I still didn't like it. Felt mushy, sluggish, and unresponsive. The shop I rented from set it up for my weight, so I don't think improper setup was the problem. For as much as I hear people talk about how great the FSR stuff is, that was a real let down. I went on a ride earlier today and borrowed a friends '97 Hardrock and liked it immensely better. Maybe I'm just a hardtailer for life.
Here is the one I rode:
