The long top tube length and low stand over height are really cool and give me a lot of room in the cockpit. The Rockshox PIKE fork sports U-Turn where I can simply dial in anywhere from 90mm to 120mm of travel.
As far as the initial feel of the bike it resembles something similar to a BMX ride. I may have to swap out the seatpost for a set-back kind so I can have slightly more weight over the rear wheel. To stretch out a bit would be cool as well as having additional clearance when landing.
Both rear dropouts are replaceable and the front wheel has a 20mm thru axle - the bike is definitely solid. I like how the chainstay opposite the deraileur has a stainless steel bashguard. No sense making the frame come in direct contact of anything.
I swapped these meats in for the stock tires. They are Maxxis Hookworms and I like them because there is no sidewall to these tires. The contact surface nearly covers the entire exposed tire (what is not covered by the rim). Taking a few turns sharper than normal made me realize these tires are gonna be sick on street.
Now if only the weather would warm up a bit so I can get some riding time it! :)
