Strengths:    Frame and Forks with integrated bars and stem

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I have the White 2000 model which Porsche sub-contracted to Votec in Germany. Only one or two were shipped to Hong Kong and I got a good deal since nobody else was interested in buying it. The frame and forks are excellent and I've changed every other component so now it's more or less perfect for me. I'm waiting for the Flite TT saddles to arrive here. Perhaps some people think that Porsche Bikes are a marketing gimmick but the fact is that the frame is exceptionally stiff, well made and beautifully proportioned. Nobody screws with Porsche for fear of having the order cancelled! I'd like to get a Votec Air Quadrat fork but nobody sells them here or in the US (Mine is the Votec GS4 Air). I'll probably buy a Fox Racing Forx when they arrive. I've tried to build a classic Hardtail and I'm happy with the result. The Bike is very light and looks as good as it rides. I bought some of the components from Speedgoat and Cane Creek directly - 2 very nice companies to do business with.
