Strengths:    IVE HAD THIS BIKE FOR OVER 10 YEARS AND ALL IT HAS IS A COUPLE OF SCRACHES, THE FRAME STOOD A 9FT DROP WHERE MY OLD HALOS FOLDED LIKE A RIZZLA! EVERY PART ON IT HAS BEEN UPGRADED BUT THE FRAME FEELS SO SWEET NO MATTER WHATS ON IT.

Weaknesses:    THE PAINT FINISH DOSE CHIP EASY AND THE BOTTOM BRACKET DOSENT LAST LONG[COULD JUST BE ME!]

Bottom Line:   
THE PERFECT FRAME FOR TRIALS / FREERIDE / XC OR EVEN AS A WORK HORSE.
GOT IT, LOVE IT, NEVER GONA CHUCK IT!

Submitted by Dougie Hamilton a Weekend Warrior from Edinburgh

Date Reviewed: July 6, 2006

Strengths:    Price is good for the new or young rider.

Weaknesses:    I took this bike to BC and within 2 days the torque from using a 203mm rear rotor along with the hard north shore terrain caused the rear rotor mount to ripp off when braking hard...the bike is now useless, also the build quallity sucks if you look closely when your rear wheel is set as far into the dropouts as possible the frame is not square causing it to be off centre for tyre clearance........not good

Bottom Line:   
you get what you pay for, did me fine for a year learning on a hard tail but not built for the hard stuff.......

Date Reviewed: February 1, 2006

Strengths:    Very strong box stays, feels really solid on big landings. Well balanced confident frame.

Weaknesses:    Head angle is suited to 4"+ forks. Top mounted cables can hurt, no IS chain device mounts.

Bottom Line:   
I own the 15" frame and this doesn't have the problems describe by others with catching your foot on x-ups. Im a taller rider and the larger frame works really well with me, it's well balanced for street, but is comfortable to be ridden long distances on or off road too, and then on DJ.Its happy to be hoped on the rear wheel or balanced on the front, I have done some big drops and it lands plush and feels very ridged (more like steel). Iv sacrificed a few frames to find one this strong with a geometry suited to various riding styles.

Date Reviewed: July 20, 2005

Strengths:    Great for the price, beefy box section stays, strong and reliable, with a longer fork this bike would fly! quite light, disc brake cable mounts, geometry dialed for big forks, basically same as azonic. floats over jumps and turns well.

Weaknesses:    with a shorter 100mm fork the front tyre hits your toes when doing x-ups and bar spins. (this hurts!). if you use a quick release back wheel it slides in the horizontal dropouts. this bent my disc. i think the paint is allright but it does chip easy and there are too many graphics.

Bottom Line:   
strong, stable, reliable and briliant for the money if you build it up with good suitable parts. a tip would be to use a back wheel with bolts as this prevents the back wheel sliding in the dropouts. i would also advise chain tensioners for singlespeed.

Submitted by exit30 a Racer from Leeds, UK

Date Reviewed: December 6, 2004

Strengths:    Very very very strong and quite light. It has a very stiff rear end and totally beefed up super strong box sections - the box section joins I have seen which are better are on the orange msisle frame which is £500!

Weaknesses:    X-ups become much more skillful as you have to have ur toe right back on the pedal or take ur foot off otherwise ur wheel catches on ur foot, stoppin the full x-up

Bottom Line:   
strong as hell, lightweight and cheap as f .u c. k! for jumping, bsx, downhill as good as other frames twice or three times the price

Submitted by Phil Williams a Downhiller from Barrow in Furness

Date Reviewed: October 27, 2002

Strengths:    This frame is crazly strong, with my old kona roast i could feel it flex all the time, but now i cant feel any flex at all. Beefy tubing/box section. With 5inch bombers it still has a fairly step headangle which is great.

Weaknesses:    Horizontal dropouts and disc brakes can be a bit of a pain, but its a small price to pay for such a nice frame.

Bottom Line:   
Buy one before theres none left!!!!!!

Strengths:    Looks Great!
Very Strong
Same as more expensive Azonic


Weaknesses:    A bit too long
Paint is a bit crap
Heavier than my old frame, but I dont care anymore!


Bottom Line:   
Brilliant frame, a perfect upgrade for XC riders looking for a bit more hardcore performance (which is wot seems every 16-18 year old is doin now, unless there doin trials). Strong, built in the same factory as Azonics and bloddy stiff with horizontal drop outs. Buy one now!

Date Reviewed: January 27, 2002

Strengths:    *Beef Frame
*Takes big forks
*Confidence booster
*Gussets everywhere


Weaknesses:    *Paint aint the best, but its still holding up on mine

Bottom Line:   
Coyote made bikes for 2001! I didnt know till I came across this page..http://xc2.iwarp.com/ The new bikes are exactly the same as 2002 AZONIC frames, go figure?

I ran my bike with rigid forks for about 2 of the six months I've had it, and it totally stunk. But with the 6 inch forks up front this thing is a machine! Takes big hucks, dirt jumps and even the odd trail very nicely indeed. Finally I've found a frame worthy of upgrades, for example a monster T would go quite nice I think... and theres not too many frames in this price range that could handle a set of them.
