Strengths:    great down hill racer, good cross country. good rear spring.

Weaknesses:    heavy, original front forks are not all that good

Bottom Line:   
A great down hill racing bike and good for cross country
fitted with some road or semi-off road tires will do pretty good on road. The original front forks aren't good, but that can easily be fixed. but a big downside is the fact that it weighs a tone.

people who are decent enough down hill riders or cross country riders should get this bike, but if your looking for a road bike or an all rounder this isn't the bike for you.

i got it for great value on ebay

FAO All Helius FR Owners (Karve/007 especially!)

Hey guys, I know you both have similar tailored frames to me with small seattube, medium top tube etc. Have you tested full compression of your shock 57mm stroke in the bottom hole? Mine has [B][U]NO[/U][/B] tyre/seattube clearance!!!! I've sent an email to Nicolai Germany and Nicol ... Read More »

Anyone tried the Marzocchi Karve saddle?

Curious if it is comfortable enough for all day riding as well as its intended FR/DH use. Supposedly made by Selle Italia but I can't find any reviews of it.Read More »
