Strengths:    Awesome bike, fast,turns, pedals really good, and excellent jumper feels more like a hardtail DJ bike instead of a 7 inch bike , stable in the air, easy to move around when airborne.

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
I build this bike specifically for Black Rock (slopestyle, park riding), to complement my Big DH bike. And WOW it delivers, with the present setup, the bike if fantastic, jumps like nobodies business, poppy, stable, fast easy to move in the air, easy to manual and bonny hop. and after you are done with that, you can turn around and pedal to the top instead of pushing. Makes my Big bike (with 10/8 inches of suspension) feel like a turd in this kind of ground.

Strengths:    COST £1850.

This bike feels fantastic, great geometry, tight cockpit and really solid yet manouverable feel. Jumps really easily.
Nice spec for the price, the 66s are very smooth and stiff. Lots of adjustment possibilities both on the fork and the shock.
Just eats up bumpy terrain, and landings are nicely softened. Really cant see this thing ever breaking.
The juicy 5s are great, makes you look forward to stopping, you can easily feather them too, so they don't suddenly jerk you to a stop. The shifters are also bang on.

Weaknesses:    I don't find the seat all that comfy, might get a dj seat.

Bottom Line:   
All round awesome ride. Can pretty much get you through anything, and climbs reasonably well for the type of bike.
Very pleased, fantastic machine!

Date Reviewed: March 6, 2008

Strengths:    A very stiff and nimble bike, jumps very well, feels at home in the air and gets there very consistantly. Turns well, nice low center of gravity. The pivots have never loosened up! The 66 is a very stiff fork, buttery smooth. Just get the proper oil height and a couple pumps of air and go send it.

Weaknesses:    Wheel set seems to loosen up quite easily. Feels like it "hangs up" on square edge bumps. But thats it.

Bottom Line:   
This is a Badass fun bike that you could hit prettymuch anything on with confidence. Buy this bike if you want a low maint. do it all, charger of a bike. If you are all about speed and flying through the air then this is the ride for you. Well worth the money. Thank you Brodie!
