Pros: Superlow bottom bracket. Quite flickable, ever for those of us who stay rather close to the ground. It's really confidence inspiring on drops and jumps.

Cons: cheap paint

Recommendation: The bike is super stable in the rough stuff, but still remains responsive to rider input. It has excellent flight characteristics. There is no slow down in this thing. It always seeks more speed in the corners. Pedaling through corners however, is not advised. If you are looking for a "hang and go" gravity sled, look somewhere else. If you are hunting a bike that is fast, controllable but still requires the ride to ride it, give this puppy a good long look.
