This is a pretty bad-ass mountain bike for under $600. Rock Shox Dart 3 suspension fork, with preload, rebound and turnkey lockout, gives you 100mm of travel to meet the demands of your ride. 6061 aluminum frame features organically shaped, custom butted E3 tubesets to provide maximum rigidity while maintaining lightweight responsiveness. I think this is as good a value as one can find in the world of moutain bikes.
