Strengths:    Strong, Reliable, Silent(minus the xt rear derailleur hitting the swingarm). Adjustable geometry lets you lower it to the floor, or jack it up for a 10" fork. Wheelies awesome, manuals better than i do. And built to take a hit.

Weaknesses:    high leverage rear shock ratio blows out a romic in 3 months if you're hucking. Get an Avalanche, this will fix the problem.

Bottom Line:   
best dh/huckin frame for the money. Don't try to save money by getting the eliminator. The fsr linkage makes this bike dreamy.

Strengths:    The Geometry, Strength, and Affordabilty

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This frame is a swiss army type of frame in the MTB world. It can function as a DH frame, a Trail Frame, an XC Frame, a dual Slalom Frame etc. so this is a best buy for those who cannot decide what forte of MTB their riding style would be.

Date Reviewed: May 13, 2004

Strengths:    Outstanding rigidity everywhere, super adjustable geometry,
perfect anti-squat/pedal characteristics. Sits very high but not unreasonably so with the 8" 888R on there. Very plush and progressive, the Romic shock works astonishingly well-especially over brake chatter into a turn or over rough ground in the bottom of a g-out. A close second to the Turner in this case, but so good everywhere else it makes up for it.

Did I mention rigid? you can lay it over in a brake slide and stand it back up with no twist or chatter, just smooth plush suspension movements.

Steering is a little slow with the long fork, but not once you get it compressed a little when it's pointed downhill. Very quiet and


Weaknesses:    A little heavy...who cares?

Steering is a little slow with the long fork, but not once you get it compressed a little when it's pointed downhill.


Bottom Line:   
Best bang for the buck in HD FSR DH bikes, period.
