    Simply Amazing! Not sure if its the 4lbs I lost switching from my 5.5 not sure if its the xt 2x10 drive train but I do know that this thing can climb and that is my weakest skill. Specially those quick burst to get over a hill. No problem! If it wasn't 100 degrees outside and my foot wasn't hurting ill be out on it instead of replying. I was not in the market for anther 26'er I was going to join the 27.5 hype but when I came across the 1599 price tag at Bikebling.com no brainier. I'll wait. The way SL rides, Im good for a long time. Let me tell you about pointing it down hill. It's fast it carves its smooth and it handles. I put my warning bell on my seat so climbers can her me coming, it's so smooth that my bell barley rings. Any who it's an amazing bike.

    I also have a Carbine SL. I upgraded from an Intense Spider. The Carbine SL is the best bike I have ever owned.

    This past week I went mountain biking in Utah. I rode the Thunder Mountain trail near Bryce Canyon. The Carbine SL is an excellent overall bike. As you mentioned, it climbs and descends equally well.

    I have about 2 weeks on a new Carbine SL as well that replaced a Spyder 2. It truly is a great bike. Have not posted my build pics... waiting on getting some good non camera phone shots. It is much more stable than the Spyder but just as fast. Build weight came it at 23.5lbs with a 150mm fork. The best picture I have is attached.

    I remember sub 30lbs trail bikes was an amazing feat. Now sub 25lb and stable on downhill runs simply amazing.

    My Carbine SL

    Here's a photo of my Carbine SL that I bought last January. It climbs like a goat, and goes downhill VERY fast (for me). The KS LEV 150mm I put on it really helps me to get my center of gravity in the right place.
