I got this bike for a steal of a deal from a doctor who barely used it. It was set up for more XC with carbon cranks/bars/seatpost etc..
I do a little bit rougher riding around the trails here so I set it up to be a little more durable.
The Moto is super versatile, I am really impressed with the way this bike can do everything and eat it up like it's nothing.
With the forks at 160mm, the head angle changes to 65 degrees (personally measured) ready to tear down the hill. If you drop it to 115, you get a crazy pedaling bike that still has plenty of plush travel at a 67 degree head angle. All in all, I couldn't be happier with what I have.
I have three sets of wheels depending on riding conditions... two DH setups - one for dry and one for mud.. and an XC setup for pure speed on the trails.
