Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Given its size and the fact it's not carbon, this really isn't too heavy - feels very planted on the trails and the wide bars give great feeling of control, even for a novice

Cons: It's a lot more capable than I am! Also I now have to wait for the Fox Factory Transfer seatpost to be released, so it matches the fork and shock. Finally the seatpost clamp bolt snapped pretty quickly

Recommendation: Coming from road biking (yeah, I know) I didn't know much about what to choose for the rough stuff, so was guided by my local cycle shop. This is a bike that inspires confidence and I have yet to push it to its limits. I fitted some CrankBros Mallet DH Race pedals which pair very nicely

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: It trounces everything I demo'd regardless of budget.

Cons: Basque isn't the same as Catalan.

Recommendation: It was shocking to realize the difference between this bike and all of the other bikes I have had as I have snapped 3 Santa Cruz LT 2.2s and awaiting yet another replacement. They sent me a carbon nomad 27.5!!??? I already have a Carbon Orbea 29 er hardtail and it was a no brainer for me to opt for the awesome OCCAM
