I liked the inspiration this bike seemed to give the reviewer. That said, it was more of a full sus riders take on hardtail riding than an indepth review of this hardtail. I really can't tell why I would buy this over any other hard-core hardtail. I believe it is 50% more expensive than a rootdown. Any reason I wouldn't just buy one of those? I get the knolly thing (I have one afterall) and I am sure many will be bought by their customer base as an n+1 bike. I would be interested in more comparisons to other hardtails (honzo esd, rootdown, cotic etc). Anyone have any experience as to how this compares to some of those?
I agree with vic, sliders with dropouts for different hub standards would have been a clear winner for this bike.
