Strength:

A stellar ride!!

Long top tube, short stem, short chain stays, short seat tube(for that longer dropper) with a low bottom bracket and solid frame!

Weakness:

Some may say weight and the fact it's not available in carbon. I appreciate the extra weight and stiffness and more fond of aluminum for pricepoint.

A true all day bike with the heart of a longer travel bike that will push most riders to go beyond their known limits!
While the recommended 140mm fork will get the job done I find this bike goes from a flyer to a railer by throwing a longer travel fork up front. Slacken that 68 degree head tube with a 150mm(67.5 degree HT) or a 160mm(67 degree HT) and you'll find a true all rounder!

Strength:

Fun!!

Bike is just plain, flat or fun to ride.

More specific?

*Geometry (dialled)
*Short CS (flickable)
*Cockpit (roomy)
*Stiff frame (rear end = bomb proof)
*Short stem
*Dropper post
*Other parts solid rather than mind blowing

As a Clyde I find this steed perfect for the abuse I dish out.

This bike has made me a better rider for sure.

Weakness:

I own the non DL version.
I've changed the usual - wider bar 775mm (stock = 740mm) for my gorilla arms.
Better tyres (OEM seeyaa!).

But these were personal preference things. Right out of the box, this thing rails!!

Bike is hefty (so I've been told) at 34lbs (luckily I'm a big, strong fella)

The one gripe I would have with the 134 is it's heft.
However, bikes weight is only noticeable on really long drawn out climbs.
When bombing, railing and flowing - is like you're riding on water.
Technical terrain is this steeds meat & potato's. It really is so much fine to ride one.

2014 version reviewed. From what I've seen in the stores, 2015 crop has dropped a little weight.

NB, price in New Zealand Dollars
