Full suspension, light frame, strong, quality build, stays planted when suspension is properly set up.
Play in the rear bearings for the shock means replacing the ENTIRE suspension pieces. Kind of overkill if you ask me.
As my first foray into the full suspension mountain bike world, I could not have asked for a better piece of kit. Mine was modified from stock, with a larger fork, upgraded crankset, and a few other bits and bobs, but all told, I think I would have chosen this bike from the start. It has been a blast to ride on the trails and I'm REALLY looking forward to putting some miles on it next year.
