Hardly hating, a niggle is not a reason to hate, you're taking my comments about the bike completely out of context. You might wish your mrs had bigger tits, but you don't hate her do you?!
It's a great bike the DW-link is top notch, especially with the tuned shock, and its a ******* awesome ride, just wanting to see how it goes with a slacker headangle, which should be fun testing out

And yet when you see what they ride them in you have to wonder whether it's their design or your technique that is compromised. Or perhaps just your belief in the infallibility of the meeja who keep telling us that longer, slacker bikes are the only way forward.
Personally I found the allrounder that suited me best was the Bandit (68deg HA - even the much harder hitting Covert is still only 66.9deg). With the balance of shorter TT and steeper seat angle it meant I was really well centred for climbs and singletrack shredding and yet it was very, very easy to drop over the back for big descents, shifting the weight forward easily when needed. A lot of the US/Canadian bikes are the same and get very well reviewed and yet you think otherwise. Guess that's why everyone's bike is so personal.

Its a special compound they only make for Nics and Racing Ralphs, it was designed by Jared Graves for 4X and he won multiple world cups and world championships on these tyres and this compound. They are great in most conditions just not muddy DH as mentioned above.
