Interesting...I would still wait a couple of years before considering it. durability would be an issue. I realize it is supposed to be fully sealed but I personally don't buy 1st year productions.

i'm of the same mentality... i'm not one who's always gotta have the newest stuff either. but you do have to admit, it does look nice. and like you said, it definitely is interesting.

No you cant. Its actually not very heavy. Lighter than the demo9, banshee etc...Pretty average frame weight for a dh bike if I remember correct.

If I could justify the need for a DH bike in Florida, I'd buy it!

Looks kinda cool, not really my cup o'tea. Just seems like some manufacturers are trying to reinvent the wheel, just to have a all new lineup.
