Date Reviewed: April 5, 2013

Strengths:    Climbs like a goat
Stable and nimble, dont feel the long wheelbase.
No brake jack
Minimal pedal feedback
Good pricepoint for being a "boutique"-ish frame.


Weaknesses:    Pretty porky weight

Bottom Line:   
Two rides on my new ride, big difference between this one and my Turner 5-spot from 2004. Bought a frameset and fork from Banshee and built it up with parts I had. Will upgrade with dropper seat post in the future.

Very pleased, much like driving a Jeep. Stable but also nimble in the tight trees.

Anyone have an XL Prime frame they'd sell for cheap?

My best friend wants a Prime but he's not made of money. He can "afford" a new frame but would have to give up quality on other aspects of the build. I know it's going out on a limb, but does anyone have an XL production(for the swappable dropouts and adjustable geo) frame they'd hook him up with?Read More »
