 great frame really strong great geometry. probably one of the best dh frame under 2 grand. rides corners great and hit the double down in the woods (you know the one i'm talking about) great peadaling ability. I find it rides best with the vivid rear shock. I have mine built up with fox 40s (2010 boxxer coming soon) 2009 saint cranks and 2009 deemax rims rides wonderful on all downhill track big or small

 I have this frame about 4 months now and am very impressed.
Its extremely light and fun to play on when blasting down the track. It pedals well considering its a singlepivot.
I'm 5'8" and the small fits me grand. Its quite long for a small but still corners good.

 having owned a sunday before I can tell that is was an overrated bike. the izimu might not be as fancy but still gives the rider a great ride. i found that the bike was a lot smoother compared to the sunday. this bike is very fun to ride and is very low maintenance and chain doesnt slap the chain stay as much as other bikes. pedaling might not be as efficiant as a sunday but its not that noticable. only down side is that the rear end does stiffen up under heavy braking so you have to learn to let them go.

 Where do I start off with this amazing work of art, do I start off with that it is so lite a flickable that you can put it in any line you like. Or that the bike feels like it is stuck to the ground and only goes air born when you tell it to. The technology is very simple to this bike and I think that's what makes it so damn nice, who needs all the complicated linkage and extra bearings. Maintenance is soooo easy, you have one main pivot point so all you do is take out the pivot and work on your bearing or press out old ones and pop the new ones in and put it back together and your off. The only thing that i have to say about the bike is that it isn't as stiff compared to others but still amazing bike worth every penny so go buy one NOW!!!!!

 This bike rips hard!It is one of the best single pivot bike out there. I am running a cane creek double barrel in the back and it feels so good with such a simple design. it can fly

 Definitely one of the best bikes in the world, such a lot of travel and so simplistic without any silly linkages!
