Strengths:    looks good for the money, stronger than u think, good size at 16 inch, stiff, light, and responsive.

Weaknesses:    left hand rear stay is longer than right, causing rubber/frame interface, no gussets

Bottom Line:   
cheap, fun, and easy to look at and look after, perfect for riders on a budget who ride light, not for the heavy stuff though!

Strengths:    The bike had some good geometry before it broke at the head tube

Weaknesses:    It broke at the head tube

Bottom Line:   
The bike stood up to a lot of abuse before it finally bought the farm off a six foot vert drop. The thing had gone off quite a few in its day but I guess it was just too much. The head tupe cracked right at the weld. The damn thing was useless after that. Good value if you dont ride hard, otherwise forget it. BUY A SCHWINN!!!!

-light (1800g 17,5)
-alu 7005 t6

-could be stiffer
-the lacquer is too soft

Bottom Line:   
cheap, very light frame. For the price- just perfect! Apart from that i installed a 3,5 Zeta TL shock and it raised the head- now the bike looks like a Dual Slalom one :))

I've been riding in mud and rain for the past three months, and this kind of this seems necessary, especially with a pressfit. Does this compromise the integrity of the fram ... Read More »
