Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Light, versatile, and sexy. Great suspension design.

Cons: hmmm. Maybe a little bit of flex in the front end during hard corners. Could be the 32mm stanchions on the Fox Talas 120 fork though.

Recommendation: Had this bike for two years now. Ridden it on anything from Downieville to the MRT. It handles all of that type of terrain. Rocky. Flowy. 5,000 foot plus climbs and descents. Rear suspension is a bit stiff when in trail mode, but is close to perfect in descend mode. Running a 120 Talas, Reynolds AM wheels, and Sram X0 2x10. I pretty much run it in the longer travel option all of the time. I'd skip the Talas if I were building this up again and go with a 120 Float. I use it as an all day trail bike, and endurance racer.
