Too fast for me :D ... I still have two... :D

It still climbs so stiff... and the back end still kills trail buzz really well...

The slack seat angle can cause position problems for people with short thigh sections...

I'm running the same frame now with 120mm fox and and 80mm stem. (A bit Ragley-ed?)

So so stable on descents... The original 11 3/4 bb height with pace rigids, now comes right up to a peak district perfect bb clearence. nice slack head angle... makes it more all trail rather than CX speed machine... and the frame is so tough!!! :D
