I haven't always liked MCN's reviews and heard they can sometimes have a bias towards certain bike makers. I typically look at a lot of reviews to form my opinion. Not everyone will see a bike the same way, but that's just human nature.
Bikes are a very "to taste" type of deal which is why it's hard to just read a review and go based off of it... well it's why you should never do that. Everyone, no matter how neutral they want to be, has a preference and they're review will always reflect that. Take reviews with a grain of salt but the only way you'll know is to get on one and test it yourself.
