I think "all mountain" is just aggressive XC riding. A trail bike has 5+ inches of travel and tends to be a good deal heavier than most XC or all mountain bikes. But in reality the two are pretty...

I've heard that the Jekyll really wakes up if you send the rear shock to Push to have that platform technology put in it. I'm going to try that as soon as I get some spare cash.
