Named for the patron saint of rotary motion (would I make this up?). Demo bike at my dealership...but I was the only one who had ridden her! We're learning to tear up the singletrack with the boys and race XC for the winter.

The toolkit in the head tube is pretty neat. If Inspector Gadget had a full-suspension XC bike, the Rush would be it. All she's missing is a bottle opener.

There's really only one thing I'm not particularly fond of about this bike: the bottom bracket is about 3" lower than I always think it is, so I'm constantly having to watch myself in order not to nail every root, stick, and rock in low dips and corners. Forget steep log pyramids; I pretty much have to sink the big chainring into the apex log and claw my way over the top. Other than that, she's a well-behaved, predictable, quick little lady.
