Strengths:    Transmission SLX and SLX shadow really efficient, rock shox sektor it's just fine, not exactly a pike, but for the price it's perfect. Overall the bike is a hard choice if you don't have the money to buy a process or a giant trance. Specially in the countries where the price can be too expensive.

Weaknesses:    It's a good option change the rear suspension for a Monarch RL or RT3, and improve the breaks. But, I insist, it's a killer bike for the price, you can do almost everything, from XC to Enduro and Downhill light.

Bottom Line:   
It's a cheap, ready-to-go bike just for the right price. You can see where the money goes, and after a few minutes riding you can sense the speed and a huge smile on your face.

Strengths:    An under 2000 dollar full suspension 27.5 wheeled bike that handles the trail just fine!!

Weaknesses:    An under 2000 dollar bike with a "CHEAP" Rockshox rear and rockshox front fork. After being spoiled with there Hei Hei and the Process series I can tell the difference.

Bottom Line:   
I like the bike at the price point!! If you can afford to step up to the Process series do it!!

2014 Precept DL Upgrades - What first?

I'm riding the hell out of this bike I got in June. Below is the list of components. Wondering, what's my first upgrade? Let's say a budget that I can spend by springtime, around 700-1000. I'm pretty happy iwth the feel of the suspension but its my first FS bike. So my main concern is weight--th ... Read More »

Cockpit fit issue on Kona Precept DL

I'm having an issue with my thumbs! I am riding a variety of trails and notice anytime its rough I start getting some pain in my thumb/palm joint. I have to sort of mitigate the shock by sometimes releasing my thumb and riding with a sort of half grip, which is obviously not ideal. The shock seems ... Read More »

Built one up for a customer yesterday. Rode it around a bit. Couldn't believe how well it handled. For under 2k, tough to beat. Honestly felt more fun than the process 134. rogRead More »

Norco Fluid 7.1 or 7.2 or Kona Precept DL

I thought this forum may be a little better to post this than the beginners forum. My wife and I decided to get back into Mtbing again but we weren't ever serious about it 15 years ago. We just rode trails and had fun. After some demos I'm sold on 27.5 over 29. I rode a Norco Carbon Sight 7.2 and f ... Read More »
