Well, all I can say is it was worth the wait! Love the Mantis, nice controlled use of colour and a frame like that can definitely handle the Spins and Kooka. How's the ride? I'm imagining it's pretty solid though I've never tried spins so maybe a bit of shock absorption?


I haven't ridden it other than around the block ... trails are a mess. It has a fairly good kick on the front so I suspect if will be a bit twitchy.

I had this exact same setup on a M2. The spins are pretty polarizing ... like or hate. I am in the group that likes the look, but I confess they are super harsh on the trail. I bet they'd be ok with today's higher volume tires.
