I love the bike. I've taken it on some trails. I also live in a pretty rural area and also use it on the roads which are usually incredibly muddy/ in bad condition the majority of the time. It handles great, the frame feels light for an AL frame. The geometry does feel quite aggressive but I wanted that.
It came before I had anticipated and was very easy to set up.
The bike is fantastic.
The handling is smooth and responsive. Handles really well on single track and tight turns.
It instantly feels like home riding the bike.
