It takes a lot of effort and practice [& 12/47 sprockets in my case] to predictably loft the front wheel on the wr in trail conditions, at least for me. In contrast to my 200exc, which lives for it, it's really hard. I have just settled for rolling big whoops, and smacking logs about 2/3 up if I can get it. Rock steps ups on trails I just hammer and hope for the best.
I would not call the capability a deal killer, the bike does so many other things well; if you want a throttle-wheelie monster it's the wrong bike.
