Strengths:    This frame will never break. I had a Giant DH Comp and i broke the rear shock mounts and there was no way i could get it warentied. The welds on this frame could hold a semi truck. The geometry is perfect and feels amazing when jumped off massive things.

Weaknesses:    I have the most dialed in part on this bike that are very light, but the frame its self it pretty heavy.

Bottom Line:   
If you go big and are sick of breaking frames or just want something that you can depend on, this is the bike for you.

Strengths:    10" of Horst-link suspension! Well-built, good welds. Flat black is nice.

Weaknesses:    A little on the heavy side but who's counting?

Bottom Line:   
Great frame for the price. Ride is unbelievable. Set the link to the highest setting and it becomes a free-ride bike, pedals well. Set it to the lowest setting and it's a DH monster.

Strengths:    Very stiff frame great suspension High quality through out all frame. Bottom Bracket seems high but the it requires more sag thus keeping wheels glues to ground so dont let higher BB turn you off. Bomb proof for sure

Weaknesses:    NONE!!! Just whould like more color options

Bottom Line:   
This product is right up there with the big name brands. I have had alot of bikes and the quality is as good or better than most. See one in person and you'll know what I am talking about.

Submitted by Rider Seventytwo a Downhiller from El Segundo

Date Reviewed: July 9, 2006

Strengths:    Very Strong, has a great range of adjustments, matte black finish looks cool. The standard spacing makes the build easy.

Weaknesses:    There aren't to many, but I'm not crazy about the Swinger 6way shock and there is not much clearance for the shock spring it sometime rubs the frame. Also the frame is on the heavy side

Bottom Line:   
The versatility of this frame is great put the bottom bracket in the high position and it will take the biggest hucks and drops you have the nerve to try, lower the botton bracket to the lowest position and you have a slack headangle low bottom bracket rocket for downhill racing and the middle position is just for having a blast. My only gripe is the lack of clearance for the shock, it might become a problem if you want to upgrade the shock (watch out for spring rub on the seat struts). I would buy the frame all over again when it's all said and done.

Gravity Dropper housing

I have a Gravity Dropper Turbo. As far as I know, its cable can be replaced with a standard shifting cable. But what about the housing? Could I replace it with a standard shifting housing? Or do I need to use the specific Gravity Dropper housing?Read More »

Gravity Dropper Boot-ique

Sorry, couldn't resist a pun in the title. I just got a Gravity Dropper Turbo LP. Haven't even installed it yet, just arrived. I knew ahead of time that I didn't really like the accordion-looking boot, and I thought a Lizard Skin might do the trick. I already bought a medium-girth Lizard Skin ... Read More »
