    You remind me of Minor Mistake Marvin (except major in your case).

    I can't fault it. I thought the Dorados would be too tall but it's nearly easier to pedal up the hill than my old Dartmoor Wish! Going down.. well... You know all about how well it goes down. Low, slack, nimble, light, balanced, air-berm-rail machine. I'll upload some footage later of todays fuck around at the You Yangs with Ezkaton.

    Low, slack, nimble doesn't equate to easy to pedal uphill on a DH trail....... Geebus man you must be an athlete ....
    Or when you say "downhill" do you mean xc type terrain?

    I dont regret selling it one bit. It is a game changer of a bike however. Shame more people are not out there on them. Glad you like it. If I could have 2 DH rigs I would of kept it.
