Strengths:    Quality steel, hand built since 1992, custom geometry available, custom dropouts, and braze-ons

Bottom Line:   
If you are looking for a high quality steel frame look no further. The bike has the ride quality of a Cadilac combined with nimble handling of a Porsche. It is like being one with the bike. Fun, fun, fun!!

Strengths:    Workmanship, handling, comfort, well designed, unique, and most of all this bike is incredibly fun to ride. It is so well balanced, agile, and responsive I am almost riding it exclusively and have sidelined my 26" bikes. Incredible all around performance, not to mention amazing customer service and help when I called Jeremy for assistance with bike set-up.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Absolutely incredible ride. Climbs amazingly well, quick through the tight twisty stuff, rolls over just about everything, responsive, stable, has that wonderful steel feel and I own titanium and aluminum framed bikes that don't ride this nice. I also own an older steel Sycip 26" hardtail and that bike is also incredible, but this 29er is on another level all together. This frame is one quality built, made in the USA, rolling work of art. Jeremy is a talentd frame builder. In addition, he is helpful and a really nice guy that knows exactly what he is doing.

Strengths:    Best bike i have ever ridden.

Weaknesses:    Tire clearance, but the Rampage wasn't around when it was built, so its not really a weakness.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is sexy, functional and fun. Custom geometry is spot on, rack mounts are super handy. Guacoloco is a rad color. May not be as schwoopy or shiny as some custom frames, but it sure does ride nice and is subtly beautiful like none other.
