    I will tell you this, that frame design is a real tight ,very responsive when digging through the trails..Awesome time when I was riding hard core...The only drawback was the rear brake , someone had a crazy idea to put it down by the bottom bracket, if riding in muddy trails ,the brake would clog up, which means that during a race had to stop and in clog it..
