    Airborne Liberator

    Has anyone ridden the airborne liberator? I'd love to hear any thoughts on this bike.

    Been riding one for about 2 months

    I got a Liberator after wanting to switch back to a hardtail for racing. The price is great to test out a hardtail again, plus it was cool they gave a military discount. I don't have a lot of experience on aluminum hardtails, but I would say this is a pretty stiff frame. It is awesome on the climbs, like way fast. And I really have been driving more aggressively through the turns. The roots and rocks toss you around abit and after awhile wears on ya, but for racing it fine. It's not as lite as expensive frames but that will cost you 400-700 more dollars, so buy what you need. I am going to try the new shorter travel Thudbuster to see if it allows a little more in the saddle riding over rough ground.
    Overall I reccomend it for racing, someone wanting a fast solid bike or trail riding in smooth terrain.
