Excellent! I've been riding a Moto Fly Ti XT (reviewed it several threads down) pretty hard since I bought it in August, and am liking it. Make no mistake, my Tallboy is faster, but no problems with this bike, I expect to pound on it for years to come.

Back to warranty: rear XT 10 speed shifter stopped working - not sure why. No impact, no scratches, it just wouldn't pull cable. I contacted bikesdirect, they got right back to me and sent a new shifter (cable too), which arrived on the 5th business day. Not too shabby!
