i picked up one of these last fall. hate to sound like i thought poorly of this bike, but i am not typically a fan of Al frames. the price and build on this bike made me decide to give it a shot. the fork is great for xc single track and the hydro brakes are incredible. the drivetrain has only required minimal normal maintenance with 6 months of use. and it might be the whole idea behind the triple triangle, but this Al bike actually has a pretty nice ground feel. roots and rocks are not as bad as i expected. i thought i was just getting a cheap bike, but it has turned out to be a really solid buy. and price point customer service is very awesome.

I have a 2011 Karakoram 2.0 that is in the middle on setup. So, I saw that PP had this on a really good sale for the bike and got one. I did only three up grades to this bike(all 3 from PP). The 1st one was the fork, then headset and last I ditched the starnut. I have done a few rides on this setup and I could not be any happier with this bike. I was going to put on a m590 crank but this tange bb is as smooth as they come, no feedback in the crank at all, very impressed. The rest of the bikes setup is as you would expect for an "out of the box" setup. The best part of this bike is PP's people. They will help you with anything that you need help with, just call and ask.
