Wow that’s a great looking bike, how do you like it?

I’ve had my eye on one ever since I read the Flow review, but I was worried when the reviewer talked about that the bike didn’t steer from the bars very well, and he would blow out some turns... Have you ever had that issue?

Also how’s the ride quality? Stiff, or supple?

I have been loving it! it doesn't corner as fast as my chameleon I had prior. However, the slacker and longer geo is more confidence-inspiring and stable. Wheelies and manuals are easy and jumps great. Titanium as a material wasn't as different as I imagined, however small chatter and bumps seem to be better damped compared to the chameleon. The main change I love the most about this bike is the BB height and the super steep seat tube angle. The chameleon liked to pick up the front end on climbs, but this one shoots forward.

Yeah I’m coming off the Canfield Yelli Screamy, and the bike is just so nimble and great handling I don’t want to lose that characteristic.

I’m really torn between the Downrock and the Stanton Switch9er. Both look awesome, the Switch9 has more user feedback, but the geo on the medium Downrock just looks exactly like what I’m looking for.

Yeah, the Downrock definitely looks like the right bike for me on paper. But everything I’ve seen on the Switch9er’s talks about how nimble and well handling they are, which like I said is super important to me.

Anyway thanks for the feedback, and again awesome looking bike!
