Strengths:    I bought the dzx frame only, and I have to admit it does handle very well for a frame with simplified mechanics. The travel adjustments actually do work and the frame itself can take a lot of hits and nasty bail-outs. It feels like a long-travel tazer though. I'll have to agree to agree with an earlier review about the unimpressive decal job. A black paintjob wouldn't hurt either, since orange doesn't really suit me.

Weaknesses:    I haven't encountered any yet. Despite having a single pivot design, the handling is pretty impressive. Although I'll have to admit an FSR linkage would be perfect for this frame.

Bottom Line:   

If you're looking for a frame and you don't have much a budget(like I do), then go out and buy it. It's light, handles well, and I'm still pounding the dh trails silly with it.

Date Reviewed: January 12, 2001

Strengths:    bought frame only. very good value for money, rear suspension is very active and works well. rear shock is o.k but could be upgraded. bike rides and handles very well, my bikes small so its easy to flick around quickly. great frame. don't like 6000dzx sticker

Weaknesses:    bike is only a single pivot at the rear. not enough rear tire clearance, irc kujo dh 2.25 is the max tire that i can just fit

Bottom Line:   
excellent handling bike for a cheap dh bike.

Strengths:    
Long Travel, good components, XT/LX, Front Disk Diacompe. Great colour!!


Weaknesses:    
Fault in frame design, lower hole in rear swing arm not accesible, long head stem.


Bottom Line:   
If you are short on money but wanna downhill this is for YOU! I love my Wheeler sooo much but the frame fault is a bit of a bummer. Nice hydro forks, bit plush so if your tubby get the oil changed. good rear shock, could be plusher though. The mega 9 drive chain will get ya some serious speed but weak chain. rear V-brake not very strong, good idea to put a second diacompe cable disk on the rear priour to your pick up. overall EXCELLENT!!!
