    Interesting model, but after watching the video gives the impression that it was too weak frame and suspension, I think the mountains in such a bike is not fun to ride. In general, I repeat, suspension is not exactly

    I think a video showing someone actually riding something that needs suspension would help. I mean would you actully take a 6 foot drop on that? Im guessing not.
