Very nice! ive never seen one built up like that. not a bad weight for it either.

It's an interesting ride as a trail bike. The lateral stiffness of the back end combined with the platform on the Radium shock make it very hard-tail like to pedal and thread down singletrack (my old single-pivot Marin was flexier, and the back wheel didn't necessarily go quite where you expected/intended at times). The low leverage ratio makes the platform very effective indeed and makes the rear suspension action very unintrusive - it just gets on with it. I'd love if it were a bit lighter (and I think they could easily make a strong enough frame for my kind of riding about 300-500g lighter), but it was not really meant for light weight. It seems a shame that they lost the adjustable travel option on the 2009 frame. I can't tell any difference between 2009 and 2010 models.
