Submitted by T_woot a Weekend Warrior from Santa Rosa, CA, United States

Date Reviewed: January 26, 2010

Strengths:    I love this bike, the DJ2 and 20mm thru axle is great. The hubs are good, the white theme is awesome. Syncros bars are great, lock on grips are a nice touch, good tires came on the bike.

Weaknesses:    Crank isnt the stiffest but its not terrible either. The SOS rims are junk. I had to replace my rear wheel, had a new one built on the Pivit hub the bike came with, Halo Combat, to match the white bike, and its bombproof. Also my front wheel came with a defective spoke that isnt quite long enough for the rim, causes my front wheel to be just a tad outta true

Bottom Line:   
Handles my abuse... jumps, drops, trials, urban assualt, 4x and even some downhill riding I've done it. Looks great, simple maintenance. Awesome Geometry. I got a great deal, would recommend and buy again..

Submitted by steve09 a Weekend Warrior from surrey bc canada

Date Reviewed: February 10, 2009

Strengths:    all the little stuff like high end bars and e-13 sproket. the frame geo is spot on. cranks are indestructable... great bike and the price of 1200cad is pretty good concitering the stuff you are getting

Weaknesses:    pedals and the rims are kinda weak but if you know how to true a wheel they are good enough(tip have your spokes at a high tention)

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great. comes stock 30.5lbs respectably. over all solid bike but it hard to find some chain tugs that will work with it. the only really big down side is you have to keep it clean or it dont look so great
