Hey Borracho,
I bought an '05 Dawg Dee-Lux 2 mos ago. I raced back in the 90's so my old XC brain areas dictated a good climber. Initially, I THOUGHT I needed the propedal that the DeeLux has, but I never use it...maybe on long road rides but seldom otherwise. The Dawg is, as Kona states, a "gene splice". I feel it's a compromise. My local trails are quite technical with many steep climbs so for me it fits the bill, but sometimes I think I should have bought the coiler. Ask me again after a long climb, and I may have a different answer

Happy riding,
