Strengths:    light weight, smooth ride,

Weaknesses:    pedal distance to the ground is less than a Trek Fuel EX 9.9 26", terrible in the corners, slugish

Bottom Line:   
I sold mine didn't like the handling and hitting the pedals on the ground all the time, made for some bad crashes.

Strengths:    The bike climbs a lot better than my Ellsworth Joker (35 lbs). Hills I had to strain to get up I now fly up. The bike is more comfortable on rough terrain and has better control.I also like the idea that I can easily lock out either or both shocks for hill climbing or smoothe terrain. FYI it weighs 27 lbs.All of the components are of good quality. The rear derailure is direct mount and shifts better under pressure.

Weaknesses:    like all 29ers it isn't as manueverable as the 26 wheeled bikes, but the more I ride it the less I notice the difference.

Bottom Line:   
This is a bike I can highly recommend!!!

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a great ride and flawless on the trail. This other guy doesn't know what he's talking about. I have a 2010 fisher and haven't had any problems. I love this bike. Stop complaining about something you didn't pay for

Strengths:    Liteweight, carbon armour, responsive

Weaknesses:    reputation

Bottom Line:   
I can only speak to the frame performance as I received it as a warranty replacement. It was 5 lbs with the shock. I rode it with my REBA SL fork for a few weeks until my G2 fork arrived. With the REBA it was "meh, I've had funner bikes" but with the G2 fork I was amazed at how spry it felt. Instantly more responsive and a lot funner to ride. I wouldn't have thought it would make such a difference. I like the bike overall; I just think that the previous years models ruined the reputation of this model.

Superfly 100 Elite- lubrication points?

I have a 2012 Superfly 100 AL Elite. It's starting to make some creaking noises here and there. Which points on the frame should be lubricated? I'm going to do some maintenance over the weekend and don't want to put any grease where it doesn't belong.Read More »

Trek Superfly 100 Elite - it's damn light!

What's everyone's opinion on the Trek Superfly 100 Elite - it was one of the lightest 29er full suspension i have ever lifted.....every 29er FS and hardtail has been so heavy compared to my 10 year old 2001 Santa Cruz (Sid 80mm fork with CrossMax wheelsets)....until the Trek Superfly. I'm seriously ... Read More »

Superfly 100 Elite - Shimano Deore XT vs Sram XX

I am an average rider who likes to change equipment up every once in a while. I have changed from full Shimano Deore XT components to full Sram XX with the exception of the front derailleur. I only have a few rides in with Sram XX. Besides the lighter weight and softer braking, is there anything ... Read More »
