I've been really happy with mine so far, it's an incredible DH bike. Not something you want to pedal anywhere, but that's now what it was designed to do. What I really notice about it is its ability to absolutely rail any corner and be totally predictable through the whole thing regardless of conditions. It's also reallllly nice off of drops, but a little long and mushy for serious ladder stuff. Great frame if you're doing pure DH on it, but if you have other plans I'd look elsewhere. And Chad was the one who built it up for me, so he can attest to how sweet the bike is.
