Strengths:    Geometry, Customer Support, Quality, built super heavy

Weaknesses:    Mr Dirt Chainguide, Risse Shock

Bottom Line:   
The best damn bike out there, get rid of the chain guide and the Risse as soon as you blow it up, and you have an unstoppable DH machine. Geometry is awesome, took me a little to get used to it, but now I love it. Laughs at anything you throw at it. If you aren't a lightweight, fork out the bucks and buy one now.

Strengths:    
everything


Weaknesses:    
absalutly nothing


Bottom Line:   
this bike is soooo good you won't ever get off it. The swing arm does what it needs to and what you tell it to. With 6.5 inches in the back it gets through all the rock garedens effortlessly. The frame is fairly light and is easy to manouver. It works beautifully with all riding styles and components. The frame is made out of beefy chromeoly and beautiful tig welds. Buy this bike

Date Reviewed: October 9, 1999

Strengths:    
frame-everthing but rear swing bearings and arm


Weaknesses:    
arm bearings and arm


Bottom Line:   
this bike is the bes except for the fact the swingarm sucks. If you like a swing arm you can bottom out on a 4 foot drop this is the bike. The bearings don't do what they need to do. The arm is just too loose. You can talk to the guys at spooky and have them put a new project-x swingarm on it with the new bearings for a mere 200 dollars
