Despite the just ok parts spec, along with the rocky mountain branded cockpit components, this bike is one hell of a cross country race bike!! I own this bike along with a giant reign O, I ride the giant most times, but I race this one. I have replaced some of the stock stuff, but this bike is a bullet right out of the box, handles technical singletrack flawlessly, and for 1200 bucks, you can't go wrong.
could use a better fork, with a bit more adjustment options, although when set right, it handles not too bad. Ditch the tires, they suck, I am running 2.10 panaracer fire xc pros, and find them to be well suited to the bike.
if you are a hard tail lover, this bike is for you, especially if you ride a lot of rolling singletrack, and the price is sure right.
