    Love the bike. Its light and the shock system used on the 2014 model allows the bike to flow at speeds down ruff trails.

    Pros
    Handling
    Fox Forks
    Cable Management
    Weight
    Balance

    Cons
    I really dont know if I have anything bad to say about this bike. This is my first upgrade to a bike of this caliber. My only gripe would be there are no numbers on the gear levers, I know amateur right.

    This bike has a different frame than the 8 or 9. They have boost 148/110 and this does not. If that is not a concern of yours then for the money this seems to be a good bike

    Pros
    Good entry level full suspension bike

    Cons
    Many parts are not up to the stress of a 250 lb rider

    I would definitely recommend this bike, especially if you can get it for the price that I did.

    Pros
    I got this bike at a year end close out special last year for about 1800 dollars. This was my first full suspension bike, so I was worried about climbing, pedal rebound etc. I seriously did not notice any difference between my TREK 6500 HARDTAIL and this bike when on flat land, climbing, or pedaling hard. Rides just as good as a hardtail, with the added benefit of trail dampening qualities when riding hard and fast downhill. The front and rear suspension is total quality, as well as most of the components that come stock on the bike. I usually ride very rocky East Coast terrain, and this bike just glides over many of the rocks.
    The matte black and gold color scheme is smooth, and the bike does not seem any heavier to me than my hardtail.

    Cons
    For the price, a better set of tires than the stock Bontrager ones would be nice.

    I've thrown everthing I can at this bike and it never fails me. I don't care much for climbing, but not so bad on this bike.

    Pros
    Everything! Climbs, decends, jumps,if you can do it, this bike can take it. Pro pedal is awesome, good all mountain bike.

    Cons
    Seat was like sitting on a 2x4, tires weak.

    I got this bike for my wife originally but have since hijacked it and ride it more than her. This thing is awesome on long climbs and still can handle the big drops and bumps.

    Pros
    Climbs like a beast, comes with great components; just add dirt.

    Cons
    Wish it came with a RP23 shock buy the RPL works just fine.
