Not done a whole ton of pedaling on but does well for a longer travel bike. It absolutely lives to be pointed downhill and railed on though, thing is nuts how fast it is.

I've ridden the RC, it handles descending amazing, and climbs ok for how much the stock weight is. I've been waiting for the bike to pop up on the products section so I can do a full review. Ya along the lines that Roots_rider said, the Spartan is almost scary fast.

Yea, a review of it would be great! I think there are a few people out there that would love to hear how it rides. I am moving to vancouver soon and am considering getting a new frame for next season. I currently have a stumpy evo 26 but I'm not sure if it is enough for the vancouver area. I wonder if the increase in DH capability when switching to the devinci from the Stumpy evo will be proportionate to the decrease in climbing ability or if it really is just a freeride bike with a dropper post and cant climb as good as an enduro 29er.

Thank you! Feels great, easy adjustability including ramp without having to pull the top cap, and super supple. Very good option in the high end trail fork market.
