Strengths:    What a beautiful ride. Very smooth for a hard tail. Strong titainium frame, light and quick with the right set up. This is what I always dreamed of owning as a mountain biker.

Weaknesses:    A quality set up has no weakness.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is my dream come true. Every thing you could ever ask for wraped up in one package. just glad I got it second hand and did not have to pay full price for it. I have ridden it a few times and can tell you I fell in love even coming from ridding a pretty light f/s biek for the last few years. Every day I cant wait till I can ride it again. So if you are looking to get the best ride you can and dont care about the price I definetly recomend this to spend every penny on.

Duration Product Used:   Less than 1 month

Price Paid:    $1000.00

Purchased At:   FRIEND

Similar Products Used:   I have never been on anything that was near as nice a ride.

This was built to perfection and I dont think anything else could compare in my book.

Educate Me on Changes to the Atlanta MTB Trail Scene since 1999

So I had a 10 year stay in the midwest that is coming to a close later this summer. Needless to say I am very excited to be able to do some REAL mtn biking again. I used to do a lot of NORBA racing and riding and around Atlanta. What trails are new, different, worse, better than it was in 1999?Read More »
