A light mid-to-long travel trail/all-mountain bike that manages to have amazingly plush suspension on the downhills without significant loss of pedaling efficiency while climbing. If you stay seated you won't even feel the need to lock out the fork on long fire road climbs.
Amazing performance comes at amazing expense.
I rented this bike during a trip to Colorado and loved it -- my only reservation about buying it is the price. At this price point, the bike should be perfect. Not sure I am ready to go that far in describing this bike -- but I would happily pay $60 or $70 to rent one for another day of riding one.
