Strengths:    the frame is unbeilivably strong, like its retarted strong.

Weaknesses:    the components suck, the drive train is horrible, but replace the drive train, and you've got a tank bike.

Bottom Line:   
If you are going to buy this bike, take a look at the flow 2 first, If your mind isnt set on option, strictly this bike, buy the frame and build your own flow raw, because the stock parts aren't the best.

Weaknesses:    the brakes begin to wear and the derailer snapped the with a not to bad crash and the shifting is starting to go also

Bottom Line:

Strengths:    The Frame is bombproof, and the geometry is awesome for street, DJ, and tricks

Weaknesses:    The stock component setup Isn't super durable at all. I've broken everything but the frame on this bike.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome frameset, but it you ride really hard the stock setup is no good. Fortunate for me, I run a bike shop so it was cheap and easy for me to make this a killer bike. For the beginner to the sport its a good buy, and with the right upgrades you can make it professional level. Seriously though you can't break the frame.

Submitted by Yangyo a Weekend Warrior from Kamloops, BC Canada

Date Reviewed: June 3, 2008

Strengths:    Very strong frame structure, easy on-easy off parts, Quick-shift derailers, durable shifters, hand built rims(very strong), good clamp on grips, nice Chromed Aluminum colour.

Weaknesses:    It is a bit more DJ than Offroad, so it has hybrid tires. But it works excellent for both.

Bottom Line:   
A must buy for anyone looking to Dj, jump ,race, or moderate downhill.

RM Flow Raw for daily use?

Hi I'm new to mountain bikes, having only ridden a hybrid for the last few years and I've been offered an 07 Flow Raw for a decent price (at least I think so, being based in Japan) but I won't have the chance to try it out first if I go for it. I'm 5'11" and 180lb and the bike is 16.5". I al ... Read More »
