Strengths:    Awesome in every way, from super sweet looks to super good performance. Very comfortable to ride and can take anything you throw at it

Weaknesses:    a little bit on the heavy side but really it is an awesome bike

Bottom Line:   
I got a super good deal on this bike and it is deffinately worth what I paid for it. It looks super awesome and it rides even better. If you can find a good deal on one you should get it for sure.

Strengths:    lightweight AND 7" of travel; very plush on DH and very responsive on climbs/sprinting: strong; fast - all that have ridden mine have commented how fast this bike is ... let go of the brakes and it goes!!! ; looks aggressive

Weaknesses:    if you are concerned about what other people think, than the monocoque/old school frame is not for you.
Monocoque frames are light/strong but noisy (although the Brodie is fairly quiet - not like the old Norco's); and they look COOL


Bottom Line:   
Most excellent ride .. was perfect for Whistler. Can be gotten cheap now - used.

Strengths:    Got a great deal!Tough as nails... great parts spec. killer looks!(yeah,- you know that's important)

Weaknesses:    not the bikes fault,just keep an eye on bolts coming loose especially the floating brake arm...locktite!!

Bottom Line:   
After experiencing multiple problems with my last(new) bike, I got it right with this one! It has taken a beating... and averted a potentially ripped rear brake line due to a bolt coming loose from the floating brake arm while riding downhill in Moab, I just pulled off the arm rotated the caliper back to it's proper position stowed the parts in my camelback and continued with the front brake and enjoyed the rest of the ride.The Brodie delivers as a solid all mountain / freeride rig. Super stiff single pivot design in rear, and 20mm axle up front makes for a burley bike for the clydesdale rider. At 40 lbs. getting uphill will work you, but going down you can hang it all out with confidence!

Side Jobs other than Gigolo

I'm on call and have lots of time at home but I have to be very flexible with my schedule. I was wondering if anyone has any goo ... Read More »
