Submitted by Crater a Weekend Warrior from Reno, NV, USA

Date Reviewed: July 11, 2009

Strengths:    Very stiff, light frame, excellent geometry, petals up the moderate hills very well for an 8 speed. Good rims, 8 inch rotor up front, comfy seat for climbs. Just feels right in the cockpit, like it was made for my body.

Weaknesses:    The Marzocchi Z1 Drop-off 4 - kind of a crap design. Internal rebound is ridiculous, Make metal clang each full rebound extension. Tried heavier oil, slowed rebound, and full rebuild twice to fix. Still working on it. I don't know how guys heavier then me can ride this fork. I am only 190lbs geared up. Better for a light rider

Bottom Line:   
Great beater. It loves the abuse. I ride fairly hard and this bike just takes it. The rims hardly bend, the frame is stiff, the sram drivetrain works great (until that rock ripped the derailleur off). Quality bike, minus the fork for heavier riders. Very fun to ride.

Submitted by ed bruce a Downhiller from wollongong, NSW, australia

Date Reviewed: May 31, 2008

Strengths:    Good strong frame, great handling, not too heavy, good hubs especially. sram gears are great, had no problems there. very few components let this bike down

Weaknesses:    It has no bash guard. box guide is rubbish, a must to replace, iscg mount snapped off.

Bottom Line:   
A very good sturdy bike for DH,Dj or street. wouldn't use it for all mountain, too slow up hills, worth paying more for a bash guard and better chain device. This bike can hack some serious abuse.

Date Reviewed: May 13, 2008

Strengths:    what you get for the price

Weaknesses:    rear wheel comes out of the drop outs on any kind of hard sideways landing, should have went with horizontal drop outs on the frame

Bottom Line:   
great bike for the price, its not near the bike my jackal is but ive got over $2500 in that bike so what can i expect, im 5'8 220 and i ride my bikes very hard, ive dropped this one over 7 foot downtown on to flat concrete with no prob, held up well so far, the only gripe i have is the rear wheel coming out but when i land straight its not an issue so in the end its my fault, great jumper and not scared of the drops so i say pick one up,

Submitted by JG a Weekend Warrior from lynn, MA, USA

Date Reviewed: November 26, 2006

Strengths:    Awesome frame and good components. I'm only 5'6" 140lbs and the 15.5" frame is a perfect fit for my, I love the cockpit. It's sturdy and solid

Weaknesses:    The jury is still out on the tires (Tiogo Yellow Kirin 2.35). They don't stick that great to rock which we have a lot of in Lynn Woods. I wouldn't mind a granny gear either.

Bottom Line:   
I'm using it as an all mountain trail bike (small/medium hucks and drops) for that purpose it's an Awesome bike. I've only had it a short while but it flies off jumps and lands well on drops. It's a bit heavy up front but worth every penny.
