 solid bike, jumps well, rides DH better.
pros- overbuilt frame, equipped with everything a more expensive DH bike would have, surprising pedal efficiency.
cons- little heavy, fork and shock only have rebound adjustment... shock has preload, top crown isn't compatible with direct mount stem.
NOTICE- Marz Roco shock comes with only 130psi, need to inflate to 170-210psi

 I am just getting back into downhill after about 8 years in the Marine Corps. I didn't have the dough to break the bank on the bike I really wanted so I went with the Taka, replaced the 888RV fork with a Boxxer and replaced the Juicy 3 brakes with Avid Code Rs. Long story short I have a BLAST on this bike and it feels just as plush, smooth and fast as bike three times the cost. Some day in the next few years I want to upgrade, but this bike is perfect for breaking back into the scene after being away for years.

 I run this bike completely stock except for Funn bar, stem and pedals. Takes everything I throw at it and never talks back. For the price, nothing else even comes close! Love it!

 Good beginner bike, heavy, but plows through tech.
