Date Reviewed: March 12, 2008

Strengths:    really strong frame, optional break flowter, feels alot lighter than it is, geometry adjustments, very good downhill or freeride bike.

Weaknesses:    so far so good, I was told that the break flowter is a little weak and that bends fairly easy, I don't used it because i do more freeriding than downhill.

Bottom Line:   
Love this bike, feels very good doing drops and gap jumps but the real best comes out on fast rocky downhills. I your looking to get this bike, just do it can bit the price.

Strengths:    Great biker to peddle, I'm using it to train for the 9 hrs. of Adrenaline.

Weaknesses:    basically set up for race. I'm a gap jumper and the Boxxer Team doesn't cut it.

Bottom Line:   
Can't wait to race it at Fontana, to compare my times from last year (which sucked I might add. I am stoked on how easily I pedal this thing uphill. A great buy for someone that can't afford a Turner DHR, Santa Cruz VP free, or Foes

Date Reviewed: March 31, 2007

Strengths:    Suspension is very good. Perfect for gapping stair cases. Very high end parts. Very beefy and strong frame. sick colours.

Weaknesses:    Shimano drive train

Bottom Line:   
Its a sick bike and you defenetly want to get it. The 06 is better because it has a floating brake and the 07 does not.
