    My new torrent

    Wow! Was concerned about coming off a FS to this, bus single speed a lot. This bike is a very nimble climber! And crazy plush and fast on the descents. Really loving this bike. Have some more tweaking tbsp with air pressure in the tires and fork. This is the 7.2 and had the SR Suntour raidon form. Coming from a pike to this for thought I would be disappointed. This for is pretty nice! No granted the big tires help with the low speed dampening but he fork is really stiff and extremely capable! Very happy with this bike and looking forward to dialing this bike in and having a lot of fun on it this summer. Only thing this bike needs is a dropper post because it really wants to lean into turns with all that grip.

    Good review! I agree with everything, including the assessment on fork. Awesome bike.

    I've had my 7.2 since November and had loved every freakin' minute onboard. Absolute monster once the trail turns down...

    I'm running 9psi front, 11 psi rear tubeless (200lbs b-day suit). Fork is 90-95psi if I recall.

    I just installed a 9point8 Fall Line dropper which should allow me to push the bike even harder. Muhahaha...
