Strengths:    well built frame, really strong

Bottom Line:   
awsome bike! did the whole sunshine series on it, had plenty of stacks and the only thing that went wrong was a buckled rim and a couple punctures, if your looking for a downhiller for any sort of occasion, this is the bike for you!

Date Reviewed: September 16, 2007

Strengths:    This bike takes any punishemnt I dish out. It's my first fully, I've only been DH-ing for about 3 years, so it accomidates my rookie riding style. If I come up short on a jump, land a bit nose heavy, the Devo always seems to bail me out.

Weaknesses:    The Hayes nine brakes that come standard. Other than new shock seals, it seems like they always need adjusting, and I've had a few parts break on them. I'd switch to Juicys or someing else

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike, and I'll maintain it for a few years t come, I feel like it still has a ton of life left. I ride the Shore, Burnaby Mtn, and make it to Whistler 3-4 times a season, and the Devo never lets me down.

Weaknesses:    nothing

Bottom Line:   
You can't go wrong with a brodie. I don't know how many times I wrecked on my first devo (lack of experience on my part) and after 2 years it was still good as new. the '07 model is SICK!! If you are looking for a good quality bike that's going to get you though the tough times and all the way to the bottom on that perfect run, then your search is over.

Strengths:    Good durable and reliable design. it seem like variations of this geometry has been done everywhere. light for it's design, great in performance.

Weaknesses:    lame paint job. got it re-powder coated army gray and looks far better now. no other complaints.

Bottom Line:   
I got this bike for free from a sponsored friend. I had just spent the last month riding a brodie nemesis that i have, and when i got on this thing I was so stoked. After riding the same trails on both bikes, the devo dominated. 7" of seemingly endless front rear travel and so much more control! I whad always pictured long travel dh bikes being sloppy but this thing is awsome. super plush suspension without bottoming on huge terrain. really strong and stiff frame with no creeks or sounds at all. just solid high end performance. I am hugely satisfied with the performance of this bike. valuewise, I would give it 5 chilis if you paid 3000 with top of the line components.

WTB Laser to Devo

Hi, I had a WTB Laser on my bike and it was a great fit for my bottom... now I'm in the market for a new saddle and I'm evaulating the Devo: it has more or less the same width/length of the Laser and it seems a bit lighter. I'm wondering if the fit is similar: anybody who swapped a Laser for a De ... Read More »

Alternative to WTB Devo saddle

I've got a WTB Devo on both of my bikes, very comfortable saddle. Unfortunately, they last less than six months before the cover starts to tear.
