Nice stinky there, bet those up grades have helped. Bet those 40's make a nice controlled front end. Nice felt, how does that handle uk DH courses?

I'm going to go ahead and post my bike again. Its never been rated before.

The only form of racing it does is downhill. It is used for climbing and all mountain purposes, but it races in intemediate class, so I guess its a downhill bike.

just to add to yours and the above comment would look tones better i reckon with single ring chainguide, small derailleur and a slim seat such as ifly, which hopefully will all be my next upgrades

to mongoose, I'll give you an 8, I like the air shock, but am not a fan of the boxxer.

coop, that sounds just about right. Its a bike I can use all week to get some excersize and then race it downhill on weekends.

prudent, I have no problems with it going through the travel quickly. In fact just the oposite, it has a bottom out control and tons of adjustments on the RC4. It pedals great without pro pedal. It is not so good with small bump sensitivity, and I have had a hard time getting used to it. Our courses get crazy steep sometimes, and It feels a little odd on those segments, other than that, it does handle quite well to be a 6 inch bike. Still, I think the Giant Reign X would handle loads better, to be honest I just went with the SC for the looks. It gets me motivated to go out and ride.
