We claimed throughout our Holy bible of Bike Examinations that, 'The Bettor is slack. Too slack, perhaps, for some riders. When you are discussing the capacity to change the HA from 63 to 62 degrees, you recognize you remain in Slackland.'
The wheelbase is long at 1,230 millimeters, yet the chainstays are a short 432 millimeters, which permits you to devote to the front wheel more than numerous bikes, as well as it still feels receptive.

It really felt a little high as well as high, not necessarily because of the angles, yet due to a relatively lengthy backside and also brief front end.
If there were a full-blown pedal drag race in between all the downhill bikes we checked, the V10C would smoothly reveal them its seat rails; it exceled at discovering speed, especially in places where various other bikes got stalled. It also attracted high marks for convenience, as the rear suspension is flexible from 8.5 to 10 inches.
