Pros: This bike is extremely versatile on the trail and can take almost anything you put in front of it. When the suspension is tuned-in it’s like riding a cloud. All of the components are solid and operate well with the frame. The suspension travel for this bike is awesome, maybe slightly more than advertised.
Cons: Not so much a con, but the Juicy 5's or 7's would suit this bike a little better. The seat that comes with the bike (Fi'zi:k Nisene Sport MG) gave me serious biker's butt after about 10mi.
Recommendation: Anyone looking for the last trail bike that they will ever need (until it wears out), this is a great choice.
