This bike has seen a couple lunch time rides, but is horrible on the trail with it's BMX geometry. The bike is mostly used as an urban assault vehicle for around the neighborhood. It's great fun at the skate park, and I'll probably even take it to the BMX track and give it try there. It has a 3-5 inch travel Psylo on the front, but works best in 3 inch travel mode. You stand up to pedal this thing, and longer travel settings make the front end bob too much. It'd probably even be pretty cool with a rigid fork.
It's also currently setup as a single speed with 32-18 gearing. I think I'm going to add a 9 speed cassette to the rear, and it already has two chain rings up front. It needs a better range of gears, as it feels too trials-like at the moment. It's hard to get enough speed for some jumps in the current configuration.
So...just another bike in the collection. Not really needed, but fun to have!
