    I have the Deluxe, it's got some nice components and rides nice. I bought it used with the clip pedals. The straps are defintely coming off. Climbs like a dream, bumpy on the downhill but front shock rolls over everything nicely.

    Pros
    Good components, handles well

    Cons
    Heavier than some other bikes due to strength of frame

    Great all around bike for beating on if you are a bigger guy.

    Pros
    Decent components for $1000. Frame is about as strong as I have ever seen. (tipping the scales at 240 lbs that is what I am looking for)

    Cons
    Fork is a little on the soft side with factory settings. Add a couple psi and I will try it again.

    This bike has potential with just a couple upgrades. I upgraded pedals to xpedo mx-35's and the seat to a cloud 9 and now I will just replace with upgrades as I crash and break stuff. Fun bike overall just remember it's not a DH or FR competitive.

    Pros
    Tough frame, decent climber

    Cons
    Pedals, seat

    I've just purchased it and I've gone from a 10 year old bike to this one so I'm going to be impressed but beyond that, it feels like a really solid quality bike and I tested a few. I would also say if you're a bigger guy, this is the bike you want.

    Pros
    This thing is a tank
    High quality components
    Pedals are huge (great for guys with big feet)
    crank is very stout
    very well ballanced

    Cons
    Derailer smacks the bottom of the frame when you land
    It's a little heavy
