    I didnt, I ended up ordering a 29er. For reviews, look up the DB Sortie, its the same bike. Jenson has this bike for a great deal now. It has awesome components too!

    looks like a lot of bike for the price. and if you want to make more downhill friendly throw a angleset and slacken the front out. I was thinking of doing that with a sortie. I liked my db mission which is basically a sortie with 6 inches and a slacker front. but didn't quite need 6 inches but wanted the slacker feel. so a sortie with an angleset was one of my ideas. the knuckle box carves good.

    Crap... no more Large available. It just sold within the last week, I have a feeling someone has read this post and then purchased the last L size bike as it's been available for the last 2-3 months. I should have moved quicker...

    Any other suggestions?

    Have you looked at the geometry? They seem to run larger, I ride a medium but in that bike I would have purchased the small based on measurements. Jenson also had an additional 20% of coupon code for Focus bikes. Sick Deal.

    Looks like the 20% is over but you can still get 10%. The 20% code was "FOCUS20"

    "Save an additional 10% on prior model year Focus bikes with promo code "FOCUS10" - hurry, offer ends August 2nd"

    Dudes, I have a large Focus Thunder 1.0, it's actually do too big for me, and I want to sell it if you guys are still interested. I've ridden it now maybe 5 times, but it's basically brand new.

    If this pic shows up this is the exact bike
