Singletracks summed this bike up as follows: "The Alchemy Arktos 120 stands out among the crowded field of trail bikes thanks to its ability to chameleon between short-travel, trail, and all-mountain with a single frame, and the Sine Suspension System that places a premium on anti-squat while delivering a supple ride feel."

That says it all: If you want an XC/Trail hybrid that you could race in anything from XC to Enduro, with FlipChip for changing the geometry, they simply don't get better than this. And this bike has been meticulously cared for since day 1 -- aside from the usual scrapes and dings on the cranks, rear derailleur and chainstays, everything is super clean and operates flawlessly.
