I've been out almost 300 miles racing against my brother x-country style (both of us former x-country racers). I'll tell you this: the F7 is a beast in a straight line- only reason able to out run him over x-country conditions on pipelines and old windy logging roads- But cornering, the Rev has done its homework. I'm still experimenting diff set ups to keep the damn inner ski down and eliminate that tippyness. Getting closer though. When i'm happy, i'll post what i've done. Anyone who thinks they have found the solution to the F7 handling, let me know.
