Strengths:    the fox RC rules!
very stiff frame!
simple suspention design!

Weaknesses:    a bit on the heavy side, but who cares about that when you launch yourself over huge drops!
a bit more rear tire clearence would be nice

Bottom Line:   
this bike rules! it is the best short travel freeride bike out there, it can climb well and desend perfectly! the frame works well with any fork you put on there, from a 4 inch to a triple clamp dh fork! the simple suspention design works great and has only one pivot (not 4 or 5 like some bikes) with a psylo SL it weighs about 31 pounds, so it can be build up kinda light.

Strengths:    Super strong frame. Fox Vanilla RC is unbeatable.

Weaknesses:    Need cranks that bow out to get around pivot or really long B.B.

Bottom Line:   
Just launched a six foot drop and it handled it with no problems. It is a fairly heavy frame but can be built up to be resonably light. Best use though is for someone looking for a shorter travel free ride machine. It bobs a little, but I can still ride all the uphills in town just not as fast as on my race bike.

Interest in a steel full-suspension 1996 Brodie Libido?

I have a 1996 Brodie Libido Medium. Right now it has a 2003 Duke SL U-turn Rock Shox fork on it and I need to find a rear shock for it. It has old-school parts like V-brakes and older bb and cranks etc. I don't use this bike anymore, although it was such a cool and un-usual bike when I first got it. ... Read More »

Do you have a Steel Brodie Libido FS bike?

I own a cro-mo Brodie Libido FS bike. I believe the bike was made in 1995. I bought the bike hardly used in 2000 or 2001...I can't recall exactly. It came with a Judy SL front suspension fork and a Fox Alps 4 rear air shock. I always loved the way the bike handled with the original setup. When the J ... Read More »
