Overall Rating:4
Submitted by TriDirt a Racer from Tempe, AZ

Date Reviewed: December 3, 1999

Strengths:    
stiff out of the saddle
soaks up small hits
takes the edge of large hits
designed to accomedate a suspension fork


Weaknesses:    
lose the stem & get a suspension fork
suspension is not effective on some descents


Bottom Line:   
I really love this bike, especcially after going with a suspension stem. I have raced all over the US and it has been great everywhere. It is especcially good on the rocky trails here in AZ. When seated I have not experienced a better suspension. When standing it is the stiffest hardtail. The only change I am going to make is to get a better shock, the Fox coil-over Vanilla is not cutting it.
