Why do you love your new ride?
Its a quiver killer, it's like 2 or 3 bikes in one, but far from being confused.
Happy to sit on it and grind away uphill all day. The down is nimble, agile, lively, predictable, planted and balanced.
It's fun as, all-f@$kery-pedal-powered-fun-bringer and I love it! The 135mm rear travel just does not seem correct, so please check your design specs (HAH!). Fourb4 suspension platform is simply outstandingly, "phenomenally awesomeness" for lack of a better descriptive explanation.
