Pros: Fantastic all mountain rig. Light weight meams that you drive up hill nearly as fast as your mates on there x country rigs. Descending is nothing less than extraordinary. A quantum leap better than any other all mountain rig today. Shorten the travel with 3 actions and away you go. To descend its the same in reverse. What makes it fantastic is you can do this whilst riding flat out and change it on the fly. Now can Canondale do the same for body armour :)

Cons: 10 speed. Gone through 3 chains in two months. What is the pont of fitting flimsy x country race gear to an all mountain rig. This rig is about being committed. You need a drive train that can live in the environment that this bike operates.

Recommendation: Great bike fantastic design. Step change in bike design. Shame about the drive train.
