Handle good w/those bars? Looks cool, are they about 80mm rise? Nice bike tup

60mm rise. Likely going to go 40mm rise and flip the bar. Handles down better than up for now.

Yeah I need a bit of rise. I THOUGHT I'd need more on this bike, but I went with 38mm BlackLabel Deitys, you can see the rise here:

It doesn't really seem that high from this profile or when you're just looking at the bike, you don't notice the rise that much. The 6deg of the Renthal Apex stem ads a tiny bit too. I know we're using more than most riders do, but it works for me, totally:
When you see how slick and sexy these frames are it becomes obvious as to why I married this bike...

I just adapt w/a little lean for center of gravity when climbing and it really does alright. I have no issues--just adapting to the 29's this season was fun. over rough terrain and going down it plows through, handling is very stable.

Ok guys, I want to get a really good, "jibby" bike and I think the 5010 is my best best. Can anyone tell my i SHOULDN'T get one? I can seem to find anyone who doesn't like them. Thanks!

Head angle is a bit slack, admittedly, but that's kinda par for the course these days. It is definitely a trail bike at the end of the day, just really enjoys extra credit lines and goofing around.

I'm finding it hard to fault mine. Not the most supple bike I've ridden?
