    Strengths:    Strength

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    This is without a doubt the best hardtail I've ridden. Before this bike, I had a 2002 special edition electro. It was good, but the RAD holeshot is better. The holeshot is almost half a pound lighter, and it is noticably more compliant. Clearly, brodie's discontinuing the use of RAD in their top-end model was a move driven by financial rather than performance objectives.

    The geometry of the bike works perfectly. Compared with the reaper, it has steeper angles, a lower bottom bracket and is more controlable in pretty much every situation. I also think the brodie is stronger as I've heard numerous reports of reapers breaking at the stays.

    My bike is set up for extreme trailriding/light freeriding and, for that appication, it performs flawlessly- A well-deserved five flamming roids!
