@Heihei it easier to pop off logs, jumps and drop offs. I thought the 2009 took a bit of effort to jump, were as this thing fly’s. Its better in the corners (doesn’t seem to lose as much speed) and the bike is just quality on the downhill.
Jury’s still out on the climbing. I haven’t down enough long techy climbs to evaluate. Also I’m waiting on a zs lower cup, so it’s even slacker at the mo with the 160mm forks (67 according to the iPhone app)
