Strengths:    This is an awesome bike! awesome frame, awesome parts.... I can't say enough good things about it. EVerything is perfect right down to the grips!

Weaknesses:    NOTHING!!! IT'S TRULY PERFECTION! I'VE HAD LOTS OF BIKES TOO SO THIS ISN'T COMING FROM A NEWBIE! I RIDE HARD, I BUILD MY OWN BIKES AND I HAVE LOTS OF EXPERIENCE WITH FRAMES....THIS BIKE IS OFF THE HOOK!

Bottom Line:   
THIS BIKE IS PERFECT! BRODIE IS REALLY DOING EVERYONE A DISERVICE BY NOT MAKING A CRMO BIKE NOW... I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THEY DIDNT' KEEP MAKING THIS BEAUTY... IT'S ONE OF MY FAVE BIKES OF ALL TIME!

Strengths:    smooth riding steel frame, and good quality brand name parts where it counts.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
When racing in Raid the North Races (an adventure race series here in Canada) a short ride is often over 6 hours, this bike makes even the long rides good. I can't believe that Brodie no longer makes this bike in steel.

Date Reviewed: February 7, 2001

Strengths:    Lineage - it's a Brodie. Prestige Frame, Geometry, spec for $

Weaknesses:    Not a Freeride Bike, Rims - no eyelets, single wall
Should have been spec'd with a Manitou SX-R over the SX.


Bottom Line:   
This is a Elegant machine. The ride quality (ahhh, steel) and Geometry make for a very responsive and comfortable bike. It climbs, descends and corners on par with any XC Hardtail I have ridden. Rides like the Handbuilt Brodie Sovergn I always wanted.

No more Prestige production bikes for 2001!? Kind of a sacregligous move for Brodie if you ask me! If you aren't too hard on your bikes (no big drops) and like to put on the miles I couldn't think of a nicer ride. Buy one if you can still find one.

Submitted by Doug Laralet a Racer from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Date Reviewed: August 2, 2000

Strengths:    It's durability and componenents

Weaknesses:    the stem is kind of ugly

Bottom Line:   
It is the best bike I have ridden, much better in quality than the 2700 dollar Rocky Mountain I raced. The frame has a lifetime, which is incredible, and it rides incredibly smooth.
The component group is usually seen on higher end $2000 range bikes, but brodie has decided to put them on sub-$1750
bikes, like the kinetic, the fury, and the infinity.
Overall, this is with no doubt the best under $2000 intermediate racers dream hardtail.
I think younger people around 120-150 pounds and not a very big wallet finally have their perfect bike.
