“I demo’d a lot of bikes in this category, and eventually kept coming back around to the 5010. It just seemed to have the best overall combination of solid construction, good design, plush suspension feel - and the ability to carry a bottle inside the frame! The lifetime warranty, and ink blue finish were the deal-makers for me."
