    It is a full on WC DH bike, maybe look at the Truax if you are planning on pedalling uphill and to the trails.

    Maybe a bit late but I've just got an Aurum 3. I also tend to ride to the local woods and have to pedal back to the top. Previously I used a giant reign x2 and on 24/36 granny I could slog up the fire roads ok, sometimes using 36/36 if early in the ride. I fitted a 11/36 and 32chainring to the Aurum and it climbs ok seated for a 40lb bike. On the flat it's great pedalling . I also fitted a reverb dropper post so I could have a good seat height for climbing. The trails it's used on locally are knarly single track DH or fire road ups but is wiping the floor with the giant on the single track.
