Was hoping some of you may have experience with this bike as it's tough to find any reviews (tried Google with dim results). I'm due for a new bike when I get back in country, and there are many on my list. I'd like more of an all-mountain type bike, but also something I can ride to the top with easily. My trails are in the Santa Monica mountains and rides generally start with 2-3k feet of climbing before descending.
The descents have a lot of features, from small jumps and some berms to steeper features. Nothing like the pacific northwest, but it can be challenging if one wants. Anyway, what appeals to me about this bike is the 110mm climbing function, and the descendability (word?). Planning to do some Mammoth riding next year and more riding in Nevada, AZ, and CO as well.
Any feedback on this rig?
