Anyone ride / know much about this bike? Super interested in it...getting close to pulling the trigger on it and have only read great things about it. They're direct to consumer so it seems like you're getting a pretty darn good deal price/components on it.
I have the 2015 and spent the summer just been riding/racing it around BC for 6 months with more or less no issues. I bought a new wheel set for it but that's to be expected for the amount of riding we were doing. These things absolutely rip on the descents. We were mostly riding outside of bike parks so had some pretty reasonable climbing days too. You're buying a slack, 14kg/ 160mm trail bike so you won't win a hill sprint challenge but it definitely won't hold you back either.
