Finally, I can manual. This is the first bike I have owned that I can attack trail obstacles with confidence. Handles nimbly. Hydraulic disc brakes allow me to scrub just the perfect amount of speed to keep me just in control and on the trail. This bike is Super!
Looks great, rides fast fast fast. It's pretty light but it rides even lighter. I upgraded to tubeless and that with the 29" is a significant upgrade in ride. It comes with the front fork lock out. I didn't think I would use it much, I use it every ride. Actually sometimes I forget to unlock the fork on downhills. The added efficiency on climbs and flat sections is noticeable if you switch it on and off. Also, this bike has very elegant lines and comes in this beautiful orange and black. I was looking at bikes up to $1000 more, but for marginal benefits it didn't make any sense. Loving this ride.
I ride everything from Tarmac to gravel to sand. This bike is extremely lightweight. The air fork is nice, so is remote lockout. I like that tubeless can be an option. Not a big fan of the somewhat hard bar grips. I like the ergo ones better.
Grat for trails, street, workouts, handles most terrain, fairly quick if you increase tire pressure to 60, (rated for 50). Replaced the stem to get 24 degree lift. replaced plastic pedals with Shimano metal, a must as i tore a plastic one off in first week. Replaced saddle. SF5 is a bike that controls the terrain. I ride 20 mi 4 times a week trails and push the bike hard. I'm 6'3, 225lb. Shifting is smooth as silk. A great handling machine. Highly recommended.
