I love my 2012 DS8.4 (I liked the older beefier frame), I had a moment where I thought dam I should have gone for a FX or something roadier, but I love going off the road when I feel like it. My worries about the road worthiness of this bike were completely decimated this past weekend when I rode 150km from Toronto to Niagara falls with a couple of friends (who complained about back soreness on their road bikes all the way... I had to keep braking so that I don't pull ahead too far )

I love this bike and ride it a fair distance just for fun everyway at least a couple of times a week. This bike solely has been responsible for a significant increase in activity in my lifestyle. Size wise, I am 6'2 and it is a 21" frame, on the roads I raise the seat for a more forward stance, in ravines and ditches I lower it for lower gravity, more upright sitting, and better control/balance.
