It looks great! How do you like it?
the frame feels super strong/stiff
the fox RP-23 transforms this bike from being another single pivot bike to an excellent pedaling full suspension bike. setting up the RP-23 correctly can get you up the hill quite fast and down the hill with the riding with the freeriders.
the bike is great for all mountain, but a bit too heavy for XC racing.
end result, the bike is super comfortable, good enough going up and great going down.
and its a big plus to see everyone stare at the bike...
