    All depends on you. Lots of folks on the North Shore pedal them uphill before riding down (novel concept). I personally wouldn't want to pedal a bike that heavy with no granny uphill.

    the bike (fsr linkage) pedals very good, but very heavy. the bike was designed with whistler in mind (hence the name A-line), so it's much better going down.
    what would rainbow unicorn do?
