So I took it for a quick spin before it thawed out yesterday.
The bike feels awesome. It climbs fine if you have proper technique and don't mash the pedals.
The descent was even better, the rear end was glued to the ground through the rough stuff. This is what I was looking for in a bike. I like to go reallllllyyyyy fast. The only problem was the Fox Float x CTD was leaking from the factory, so it is being warrantied on day 1.
