Date Reviewed: March 25, 2005

Strengths:    Extremely light and very easy to ride I love this bike and I’m only 14 it was a birthday present and it rides like a dream. Forks are great (marzocchi z2 atoms) take in every thing I throw at them which is good because I’m quite light. Great paint job and a very smooth ride. Love it, love it, love it. (Dad is a bit jealous)

Weaknesses:    None really except the metal bottle holder, carrying it up some steps and I must have put a bit of pressure on it and it snapped right off! + Seat is a bit hard

Bottom Line:   
Any one wanting to buy one shouldn’t miss the offer as they ere quite rare and great for the money. I’m very pleased with it and think also that every serious mountain biker should have one.

All in all BUY ONE TODAY!!!

Date Reviewed: August 9, 2000

Strengths:    Excellent bike to ride, handles well, not too light, but you don't notice that when your riding. Goes up hills like they're not there.
Brilliant paint job, just doesn't scratch / chip at all really.
The bar ends it comes with, onza, I've seen for sale at nearly £50 on their own.


Weaknesses:    I found brakes a bit dodgy, front brakes rubbed on tyres a bit.

Bottom Line:   
Does any one else in the UK have one of the birght orange machines? Everybody should have one!

Date Reviewed: May 19, 2000

Strengths:    Good handling, great value for money, stiff strong butted frame
reasonably light, good paint, fits me like a custom frame
good "drive" out of slow corners, great brakes, i can't stop praising it


Weaknesses:    a tad harsh after three hours in the sadle, stock saddle sucks, forks could be better (like manitou sx-r), brake boosters are a nececity (mine came with a rear brake booster as oem) front and rear, no tasty stem/ seatpost/ handlebar, stock (shimano) chain sucks, stock vp cliples pedals suck in mud.

Bottom Line:   
A great ride for the money, at least here( friesland) close to the manufaturer (i live about a 1 hour car ride from the factory so i don't have to pay the usual shipping/import cost's that drive bikeprices upwards). The frame is eficient in tranfering pedal power into speed, but also verry harsh over bumps.
The frame's top tube is rather short, witch suits me, and it also has a short wheelbase. The stock spyder r works well in a workman sort of style.
To summarize: This is a great amateur xc race bike.

Submitted by Laine a Cross-Country Rider from Swarthmore, PA

Date Reviewed: December 28, 1999

Strengths:    
Handles well, good looking, strong light frame 6061 Alu, extremely good paint quality (5 years warranty). Very good grip on those Michelin tires.


Weaknesses:    
Breakboosters should come as standard. A better suspension fork like the SX-R or SuperFly should also be standard.
Put some tape to protect wires against frame.


Bottom Line:   
Very good quality bike with amazing factory warranties that none of the other top MTB brands dare to offer. The bike is reasonably light (11.9 kg) even if it only has shimano LX components (hubs, bb, crank, deralleiurs). Put XTR on it and a SuperFly...
The Magura breaks works great but a brakebooster would still be a good upgrade.This bike is highly recommended to anyone, if you can get hold of it.. To bad it's not sold over in the US! Check B1's website at http://www.beone-bikes.com/
