Strengths:    It's got a good looking tough frame and it dares you to just ride over or off everything in your way.

Weaknesses:    Pedal bearing lasted about 6 weeks, Free hub ratchet detonated after 5 months, the chain lasted 3 months and the front chain rings didnt change well after a couple of months of mud and the forks are useless and the hayes sole brake's felt dead. Also the gear cables filled with mud.

Bottom Line:   
After changing the front rings and chain (to get rid of the chain suck)and replacing the brakes and now the rear hub and inspite of wanting new fork's i still love this bike it gives you the confidence to try new things (and crash in new ways)and it goes where you want it to.

Strengths:    RAD tubing, strong frame,

Weaknesses:    Fork, drivetrain

Bottom Line:   
I love my bike! The only thing I don't like about it is the fork, I need more adjustments (Dirt Jam Comp). I also find that I lose my chain more often than I'd like, so I'll probably be going single-speed. Frame is not as stiff as a Morphine though. I've used it for rocky downhill trails, and it performs quite well, the frame is stiff, and the bike goes where you point it. Also, being made in Canada is a plus!

Date Reviewed: August 21, 2006

Strengths:    Build quality; frame is rock solid, powdercoated paint job kicks ass, pretty good components - brakes, cranks, pedals, wheel/tire combo(a bit heavy)

Weaknesses:    None really, i've owned for about 1 month and have done 6 foot drops to flat with no issues. Haven't bottomed out the fork yet, Marzocchi Dirt Jam Pro(air/coil/oil), but the 4 inches of travel causes issues with pulling tight corners.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome frame geometry. I like it because the bike is ALL handbuilt. No robots or sweatshop workers in a factory in Taiwan making the welds on this bike. The wheelbuilders name is signed on the wheels and the frame welders name is etched on the bottom bracket. A bike made by bikers. Only wish it was made in America instead of Canada. BUY THIS BIKE
