The Element 70 MSL is a nimble full-suspension cross country frame. But after reading some of the reviews on it, you'd think you're reading about an all-mountain design. Obviously this frame will climb well with its 69.5 degree head angle and upright 73.5 degree seat angle. Pointed downhill, however, it's the same story! Bike magazine's in-depth review of the Element 70 MSL describes a bike that "somehow feels relaxed enough to charge formidable descents without a second thought." Now THAT'S testimony that most bike companies would kill for.
