 This Bike is amazing. I have my'n equiped with a Elka rear shock and a 888RC3 WC. Reagardless though the bike is designed so that the suspension works in unisen and absorbs anything and everything. In berms you can feel the bike pulling you lower then you would normaly go, yet it maintains perfect traction and the suspension feels like it boosts you out with even more speed then what you entered with. Also it doesn't use to much travel. You won't find your self blowing through 6 inches for a 4 inch obstacle, and when its time to bottom it is never too rough (Elka shock helps alot with that). It is a little heaftier then some bikes out there, but it is still very flickable and my'n is at 40 lbs with lots of room to lose weight. Also the rear end is one of the stiffest I have felt, really helps when getting low or taking take those off camber corners. Also the braking is mint, when things get hairy in a tech section and you need to stop, rear wheel travel seems to work in complete even under braking, yet you still get that nice drop in travel with a brake tap before a berm.
I could just keep going for ever, but I finish by saying that you will feel comfortable on this bike quiker then any other race bike. It just feels like you've always ridden it, I don't know how to describe it.

 Incredible bike with amazing suspension. The pedals are very efficiently I'm stoked every time I get a ride on her. Bike is perfect for downhill racing with aggressive geo. Its impressive how long and low the frame is. Bb has only 14,5" but I have never hit any roots or rocks.For me that's amazing bike. After just a few months, I'm hitting things harder, picking faster lines, boosting and popping over rough terrain without losing speed, hitting new features that I never bothered with before and everything are easier.

 Siticks in corners like its on rails - pedals lika deamon and soakes up every bump, leaving the rider 100% focused on going fast and not having to woarry about what the bike is doing...

 Incredible frame! Incredible suspension - especially with a BOS S**toy shock - dialled geometry, great build quality and bombproof without being overweight. Just glad I got mine before the price went up...

 Try it... you won't really know until you do! It's that awesome! I've been racing on it for 3 years now and it's got all one can want. Contact Lama Cycles in Canada to try one.

 The fastest frame I have ever ridden. Relatively light, super stiff, smooth travel all the way through the stroke.
