The way I ride fast is often different from the way the ride for fun.. so mute point. Also, is the argument not sufficiently beaten to a pulp? @wydopen

Unless something is happening so fast It's difficult to actually see ... save the slo mo. It's tedious. Otherwise, good job very interesting idea with the lighting.

Waki there was a market for those because there wasn't anything better. Pre "Super-bike" there were all sorts of niche bikes that were desirable. The main issue I have with this bike (I am admittedly the type of rider who would buy such a thing, keeping that in mind) is that with it's muscular build it's the kind of bike you might use for park riding or slope. But it's kind of heavy and slack.. and the fork is not exactly what you would want for that. As a trail bike it's quite honestly terrible, citing the weight and head angle mostly. You might say well "I want less travel but I want it slack"... to that I'd say, that's great but if you really need a slack head angle like that you are riding steep terrain, and it's prob rough or you wouldn't want it that slack... so why not at least 150mm? Ill bet the bike is fun to be honest, and with some careful parts speccing it could come into it's own on the right terrain. I just wonder ... why own a niche bike like this when you can have so much more?

Not alone, in fact Im starting to hate mtn bikes. I love my 26, used to ride 20" freestyle and bmx bikes, at least they still make those. :)

You are missing the point. While I don't want reviewers to "bash" on bikes that have some merit I don't want them to "be nice" and recommend a bike that has a confused personality. As far as wheel size debate, we don't need to get into one here because the point was not wheelsize, it's the fact they cite it as an issue with this bike when in reality it's not the problem at all. There are plenty of 26 inch bikes getting the job done so the problem lies elsewhere. Your rant has nothing to do with the discussion here.

This bike has been pretty much panned elsewhere for the reasons mentioned in the article btw, I still can't wrap my head around the closing statements.

This bike should have been lighter, slightly steeper in the ha, and spec'd for a 4x rider who rides trails. What we have here is a Meta SX with lower travel and that makes no sense.
