That's a well written, honest review that accurately mirrors my experiences with the bike. This is the 3rd or 4th Brad Walton review I've read that was totally on point. Nice to see one of those once in a while. The comments on sizing, cockpit layout, pedalling characteristics, stiffness, capability when things get rough and general fun factor are all spot on. I built mine up with my parts so had none of the component-specific issues mentioned (fox 36 and crossmax SX instead).
