Iron Horse Sunday Expert Downhill Full Suspension

Product Description

SUNDAY / DOWNHILL RACE / AGRESSIVE FREERIDE

Sunday is race day and the dw-link equipped Iron Horse Sunday is regarded as the best performing downhill racing bike ever built. The Sunday’s dw-link provides incredible traction, cornering ability, square-edged bump performance and light weight to augment a geometry set that has become the industry standard for downhill racing bikes. Being complacent isn’t something that Sam Hill and Duncan Riffle do, and the Sunday epitomizes this spirit. For 2007 we introduce a host of features developed over the last two seasons on the World Cup circuit and through the dl program. The ‘07 Sunday uses an all-new o.p.t. 6069 triple butted tubeset coupled with new lighter forged uprights, adding strength while dropping 0.9 lbs from the frame. All new 10-mil high strength pivot hardware and an innovative screw in lower pivot assembly let you clamp down on the rear shock tight for a zero play and no-maintenance ride. New f7 forged 7075 t6 upper and lower links cradle the shock directly, and look trick doing it. Get on a Sunday and realize your true riding potential.

TECHNOLOGIES: dw-link, o.p.t., 10-mil, f7, max-e, 6069, o-pivots

FRAME 8" TRAVEL DW-LINK DOWNHILL RACE FRAME, 1.5 HEADTUBE, 150MM X 12MM THRU AXLE HUB SPACING , 83MM BB SHELL, REPLACEABLE DERAILLEUR HANGER, ISCG05 CHAIN GUIDE MOUNT

Strengths:    Really Smooth ride. Hard to get mud out of DW link but i dont mind, has really nice and loud rear hub sound, Roco TSTR has really no difference than the world cup, i think. Cant say nothin but smooth sailin on this ride

Weaknesses:    brake cable holders pop off pretty easy, but no big deal its called zip ties.

Bottom Line:   
Smothest bike youll ever pay for this good a price, you get in it you'll feel unstopable. No wonder sam hill is so nasty!

Date Reviewed: August 28, 2007

Strengths:    Frame and geometry. wheels and forks seem to be just fine

Weaknesses:    CRANKS - worst ever. FSA Maximus make hussefelts look good. Bent on first day of riding. able to make them flex with my hand alone.

Bottom Line:   
It is a great bike, I haven't enjoyed another bike more once i got a feel for it. I got mine on special for $3000 AUD - but the price is a stretch when retail (the frame is worth it, but the spec is lacking in a few areas, but overall is well thought out). The cranks are pitiful - but at this price point they all are
I was skeptical about the rep sundays have, but i am now a very satisfied customer.

Strengths:    Colour!! Its a Sunday, well priced, decent spec, great cornering and plush

Weaknesses:    colour, some wont like it, too bling, low bottom bracket (no real issue once u get used to it)

Bottom Line:   
My first DH bike. I am in love!! Went to buy a Stinky,walked out with the Sunday. This thing has been used for DH and some pretty big hucks. Handling it like a dream. So plush compared to my all mountain bike, rock gardens and drops are a breeze

No wonder Sam Hill is killing it on his World Cup

It was an impulse buy, but I don't care. I just won on ebay a new Sunday Expert for $1400.00 shipped. I didn't think I was going to win, but I did. Now the bad news it's not really for me, it is for my girlfriend......I'm going to have to spend another season on my 7point.Read More »
