Strengths:    Great feel, very attractive, beautiful all around. also doesn't mind if you ride other bikes.

Weaknesses:    just wants to huck all day and night and doesn't understand my need for downtime. Its not like I want to stop, but... I sort of have to. So, its sort of narcissistic

Bottom Line:   
The 5/5 chilis on every review should sum it up. There's not many reviews because people are busy with it like a drug

The Mob is an amazing frame that creates an amazing bike. It jumps amazing, i've just about mastered manuals while using this bike, and lots of other improvements as well. Its hands down the best feeling hardtail i've rode. It took some encouragement to buy because it was a $600 frame when I got it a few years ago, but it's been worth it...

We all know its meant for dj/park, but I threw some meaty 2.5" tires on it, then took it into the woods and hucked it off some cliffs and a few good sized kickers. Its no dh bike obviously, but it did surprisingly well. It handled the tight turns with ease and the drops (10 foot plus) weren't even painful. Nothing broke... not even me...and I've used it for mountain a few times since then to kinda switch it up. Its a lot of fun wherever you take it

Favorite Trail:   the best kind

Duration Product Used:   3-4 years

Price Paid:    $600.00

Purchased At:   the black market sit

Similar Products Used:   Haro thread, until it snapped. It also has a decent feel but its too long.

Bike Setup:   My set up is a 100mm manitou circus (which is an amazing fork btw) 26" front wheel and a 24" rear wheel. I dont recommend using a pike with this though because of the knobs on top of the pike will rub the frame on x ups and bar spins. its kind of an easy fix though

Strengths:    Amazingly balanced frame short chain stays and comfortable top tube length at 21 5 Im 5 10 inches and this thing is super easy to throw around The steel frame is light and not so stiff that you feel everything like aluminum frames AMAZING FRAME I owned a riot prior to this frame and the only difference is the mob has lighter tubing and is made in America by S&M Bikes

Weaknesses:    Price and maybe the fact that they no longer make the mob and no longer make their product in the USA

Bottom Line:   
Buy a Mob or Riot YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT
