Hard to fault as a pure XC bike. Light and responsive with enough travel to get you over the vast majority of obstacles. Being positioned as a pure XC does mean that if you're a general rider like me you quickly feel the need to upgrade and adjust some stuff. The racing ralphs for example got ditched, a dropper post went in and longer handlebars and a shorter stem replaced the stock ones. I've toyed with changing to 1x11, but like the versatility of 2*10. All-in-all though if you're not shredding jump-focused trails then the 100mm of travel in the Fox shocks is fine and dandy. Personally, I like the balance of being in decent shape when I get to the top of the trails, and in one piece by the time I reach the bottom.
