mine does it all. xc, all mountain, dh, free ride, urban assault, or just riding around. it actually pedals surprisingly well for being a big travel bike, the maestro link is awesome. im trying to lighten it up as much as possible though. it's a medium so i'm already big enough on it to move it around easily, but 40lbs is a lot of bike to move around all day. ti springs helped, new rims and tires should help more, i just gotta build the rims.

it does suck at times, especially on long days of riding. hence why i'm trying to lighten up the bike as much as possible.
