If you guys have never ridden a downhill bike you don't even know what they are capable of. It's amazing. You look at things and think it's not even possible to ride over it, and these bikes suck it up and you barely even feel it. Imagine a MX bike with no engine and less than a quarter of the weight. My Foes has 9 inches of travel front and back and the stuff that bike can go over is incredible. Once the bike is dialed like Gee's is, you can just rail. It's pretty sweet.

Of course. Why wouldn't I? All I need is a single speed and a 29er to complete my collection.

Mine was 50 pounds! And you've never had a hard ride until you pedal it straight up a mountain in Canada with flat pedals for 2 hours. That was brutal.
