My son has the 24" Yakuza Aniki (14" frame) and his kicks serious butt. Takes a serious beating and medium hard hits. Climbs pretty good for this class MTB. All around great MTB with great components for the price. I love the 8" rotors on the 24" wheels, totally blew my mind away when I saw that. My sons has the Hayes MX-2 mechanical brakes, and they work great.
A little on the heavy side, but what do you expect from a FR/light DH MTB.
Would recommend this MTB for FR/aggressive AM by all means. All around great MTB for the price!
