    Looking to spend C2W funds on a bike for downhill and off road use..

    any thoughts on this?

    primary in my mind is the weird "half spring, half hydro" suspension.

    Would like to know if any flaws i should look out for really.

    Bumping this in hope someone may have any idea if this is worth my money

    My mate rides one. He's a happy man.

    Not sure if it will fit the DH bit you want though, as its mostly a XC bike. Then again i ride my XC bike DH so its up to you really.
    Perfect for XC

    Thanks, can't beat an endorsement.

    With downhill, i guess i meant more the incidental downhill stretches that come with XC, so hopefully will see me right.

    May go take it for a test spin tomorrow.
