Strengths:    Amazing ride, comfortable cruiser on pavement; monster at speed downhill. Hammer-Schmidt perfect for instant torque on sudden uphill change... Brakes are amazing and have saved my life many times- I'm 50+ and still acting 30... This bike makes me a kid all over again!

Weaknesses:    It's a heavy brute but my many crashes with no damage prove its right rig for me. Wish I understood suspension adjustments better - this rig should come with a day of instructions on the mountain. When you go over the handle bars and it lands on you it hurts!

Bottom Line:   
Hammer-Schmidt is fantastic and can't imagine this bike without instant gear change on sudden terrain changes... Once you learn to trust this monster downhill it becomes an incredible thrill that leaves you grinning ear-to-ear. I often interrupt my ride to stop and look back at the obstacles I just passed- not believing I made it through. Ever ride a 125cc dirt bike? This rig feels like that without the motor. Super low gearing help the uphill grind but you do feel the weight- no race horse up hill...
Appearance and looks is one reason I bought this bad boy and it never fails to turn heads. I let folks ride it and they always come back grinning and wishing they could find something like this for half what it costs... An off-road motorcycle without the motor!

Attack Trail 6.9

Hi Everyone, Does anyone in here already tried out the new Attack Trail 6.9? If yes, what do you think about it? Can anyone say if it is worth the extra money or is the WR 6.9 a more balanced/reasonable option??? I want to buy one of this two and since i'll buy it without testing it or even ... Read More »
