 I have a 2016 balance with Push 11-6 mounted and 170mm Lyric. I built mine obviously toward the downhill side of the spectrum. It pedals surprisingly well for what it wants to do. Don't expect to set speed records, my build is around the 35 pound mark but it gets the job done. I dont like climbing techy stuff on it since it is a verrrrry long bike to wrestle up rocks, but I am sure under better hands it would do great. It chugs along on smoother climbs great.

But of course you don't buy a 165mm coil sprung aluminum bike for climbing right? It descends like no body's business. I frequently find myself going way too fast because the suspension tracks so well. It corners like a dirt jumper. It begs to go faster whenever possible. Handles rock gardens like a DH bike. And i don't worry about rock strikes or huge landings to flat because the bros built the shit out of this bike. No pivot maintenance a year into ownership and still feels great.

I like to describe it as a pedalable freeride bike.

 The Balance does exvctly what Cantield designed it to do. It climbs like a trail bike and decends like a DH sled. I have mine setup with a Cane Creek double barrel CS and running 30 %sag. I've never needed to turn on the climb switch on the trails.
I'm 6'3" and I ride a large with a 65mm stem
Build weight is 31.2 lbs
