    Found a bike that out climbs the spot!

    Just had a couple of hours ride on a 08 rfx,wow it climbs like a tractor on technical climbs + even with a 36 float it can climb steep ups.
    Going down what a blast,it feels more balanced than my spot with a 36 talas,the rear end just soaks it all up.

    In my view, it's not a climb unless it takes at least an hour of sustained up. Little terrain bumps with some tech are just minor obstacles.

    I'll take my 5spot for climbs, thank you.
