Strengths:    It is an excellent Bike. Turns make you feel like you are on rails. Active suspension.

Weaknesses:    Very little for weaknesses.

Bottom Line:   
For you homos out there who think it is your duty to clutter up these review sites with your crap about the products guess what. It's not. You say it sucks compare it to a unicycle and dont give a single reason for why you made this judgement. Oh, and if you're reading this the bike is not the dissapointment to man kind: That's yourself you're thinking of.

Anywho, for all you non-freaks out there this is a great choice of bike. It handles like none other and is second to none over the rough stuff. Deep braking bumps are sorted out with the DW-link suspension which tends to stay active under braking and pedalling. it's a great choice for anyone who loves to ride down-hill trails, resorts, or races, and happens to have 6000 dollas hangin round.

I actually dont hate your guts tom, i just want you to understand that this is a site for opinions, not garbaging a good product without giving a reason. You could have had a bad experience with it. I understand. However, you could have told us what happened or what you didn't like about the bike. Instead you just mindlessly attack it. We will never get a strong knowledge base on websites like this to help consumers make smart choices if people who dont think about the negative consequences in their actions keep adding garbage like what you have done to this review. Please refrain from damaging things like this in the future, and i wish you good riding!

Date Reviewed: March 8, 2007

Strengths:    fast in corners thats it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weaknesses:    This is the worst made frame I have ever come across.(and i 'v been racing since 1991)
nothing is in line no the rear end. the spacing on the pivots is out by a few mil,
Don't buy this product. Iron horse should'nt be making bikes if this is the best they can do.


Bottom Line:   
This is a poorly made piece of crap. if you are thinking of buying one, get saving as you will need a new frame in about 4 months.

there is nothing good about the sunday factory frames. Ironhorse are just cashing in on sam hill's world champs win.

Waste of money.................

Strengths:    The suspension is amazing. DLINK allows the bike to float over everything...even when you try to get a pedal in here and there.

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
This bike does more than it claims. Yes it's a top of the line downhill racer. But this thing pedals uphill better than many freeride rigs! Can't say enough about the DW link. Tuning the suspension, especially the HIGH TECH fork, can be a handfull. But the payoff is riding to best DH bike around. Best bike I've owned.
