Don't know if it's just me but would this thing actually be capable of actually going downhill or just kill the rider ?

Apologies if it's a members bike but it's bloody horrible

Sure it will go down. Weighty but much like a tank.

That looks well slack and very heavy. Can't imagine it'd be much fun on a tech, twisty dh track.

Bet it weighs loads too.
