Can you describe the ride?
The Sync is fast, its very responsive when you put your foot down, really gets up to speed quickly, and it's very stiff at the rear, due to the short chunky chain stays and the DT Swiss bolt-thru axle. I want to say that the overall ride is smooth, but that makes it sound like any Ti 29er, it's smooth but really aggressive when you want to chuck it about, especially for a large 29er. I also went for the direct mount XTR rear mech which makes shifting super snappy, add a dropper post and there's your perfect do-it-all trail bike, in my opinion of course.
@ mattjg - where are you based?
