lots of mid range power, perfect with fmf fatty pipe

Suspension
a bit too soft, but still good
Brakes
brakes are great, both very sharp.
Comments
this is one amazing fun bike to have, if you get a chance to buy one go for it. the maintanance is low and you can tear the **** out of it and it will still go forever.

Power
Definatly a mid range bike. Keeps pulling in low end but has weak high end power.
Suspension
Too stiff. Doesn't soak up bumps for shit
Brakes
Not enough front but back brakes lock up easy. Stops on a dime
Comments
Don't expect to have original plastic on body. It was very brittle and broke easy.
