Strengths:    Cornering!...this bikes is low in the bb and rips through corners.geometry is spot on .on paper it looks lower and slacker than it feels.also handles rough sections really well.jumps nuetral and lively.clean welds on the frame and a really active suspension designs which pedals really efficient ly when pedalled hard

Weaknesses:    Small amount of flex in the seatstay linkage of rear triangle.hard to clean linkages well..outperforms most other bikes out there but no one cares cos its not boutique enough

Bottom Line:   
one of the best bikes for racing and riding dh period.the scalp, v10 and demo 8 should be on the top of everyones list.the scalp didn't make the dirt 100 for being average

Strengths:    Cornering is amazing , the bike begs you to lean and pump corners like a mad man , handles flat landings really well , rough stuff is tamed , jumps very neutrally and looks great.
Relatively cheap too , easily as good quality workmanship as bikes twice it's price


Weaknesses:    Paint on my yellow frame chips easily , now heli-taped.
Striking my pedals quite often at the moment but that is rider error really as i'm not used to the low BB ( which you will be thankfull for in the corners )


Bottom Line:   
A real banger of a bike , it handles every situation with ease so far , felt instantly comfortable on it !
By lunch time on my 1st day I had rode every jump/track at my local as fast or faster than ever before.

tr450 & scalp have brake jack?

I never hear about brake jack or floating brake adapters these days on newer bikes, but still see forms of single pivot bikes. Do bikes like tr450s and nukeproof scalps have noticeable brake jack?Read More »
