 I ride the 09 bike however I've added the Rockshox Totem 2 step. Adding the taller fork relaxed the angles a bit without making the bike feel too tall. Lower the 2 step fork and the bike still remains ride-able uphill despite the added weight. I live on the North Shore in Vancouver and the bike is awesome on all the terrain...

 Live near vancouvers north shore and ride it for DH, Freeride and a little all mountain. Feels great on the shore's steeps. Really smooth on rough landings for drops. I own the 08 version and love it. This bike should be under the DH/freeride category.

 Great bike. handles most things, fsr suspension is pretty good but not so active under braking. Pretty light considering how tough it is, and pedals well. Looks great in the flesh, handles big hits and fast sweeping downhills in it's stride. Have the 2008 model which had the Bomber 66 ATA, which when working were great, super plush, but had endless problems with them. Prefer having the burly forks on the 08 model compared to the 160mm of the 2009... I used it for freeride in the UK and it's been great. Complements my Session 88 perfectly as a go anywhere, do anything bike.

 The best bike I have ever ridden. This bike can climb efficently, descend really well. It is responsive and nice and light. The suspension is nice and cushy, but just flip the tst and its almost like a hard tail. The only thing that is a downside is the fork, In my opinion they should have kept the 66 like the 08, or put on a fork with mor adjustments than just rebound and air

 I love it. I live in Nova Scotia, and there are not alot of trails that require much more then this. I have an 05, and have been riding it since 06. I have replaced everything on it, and now run an 01 monster t. The bike just eats everything up, and it still very menuverable. I race DH and super D on it, and its perfect. It will bottom from time to time, but thats no biggie.

 This is a really good bike. I have the 2006 version and it handles everything well. Only problem is that the derailleur was too big for frame and made the chain slip off everytime I shifted in the front.

 For an all around bike it's a bit heavy but it'll get the job done on the shore. I find it pedals well up Fromme but you definitely notice the weight. I love mine and intend to stick with it for a while!

 I had an 08 and broke it....the 09 is WAY better in almost every way! I love the geo and the colors. Bigger gussets in the right places. she has taken everything I have had do dish out so far!

 I have the 08' and the new frame is so plush it's feels awesome for a six inch travel bike. It's very versatile in a number of conditions. Great investment.
