Strengths:    nice compact frame, feels like a dirt jumper. wickedly smooth suspension, ive fallen in love with marzochhi components. love the geo, the handling and the looks. so easy to throw around in the air.

Weaknesses:    juicy three brake. had to bleed them 3 times

Bottom Line:   
this bike is the shizle. it jumps so easy, the 180mm travel is no hinderance at all when bunny hopping. wicked fun bike. defintly recommend it to people who want a bike thats playfull but still fast enough for a bit of shredding

Date Reviewed: April 2, 2008

Strengths:    Geometry - perfect for jumping, dropping, razzing around.

The travel - 7 inches when you need it, but feels like less when you don't

It weighs 40lbs stock but pedals really well, probably due to the High Rollers fitted as standard.

Ultra Short seat tube and short chain stays


Weaknesses:    Stock cranks - Truvativ ruktion - useless, commencal bars - heavy.

Seat in its lowest position buzzes the rear tyre on full compression

66 RCV stock fork takes big single knocks well but not so clever on repeated hits. Lack of compression adjust

Roco R shock has rebound only


Bottom Line:   
This ride is great. All down to the angles. Tagged as Cedric's slopestyle bike, but really a pure pratting around in the woods bike.

After so much VPP action, Single Pivot is the way to go.

More like a Bottle rocket or Intense SS than a VP free.

So much snap, crackle and pop.

What is the best application for furious Fred tires

I am looking to do a race or two that take place on paved, gravel, and dirt roads and want to know the best tires to use for some grip but also fast rolling. Would the Fred's be ok or would a RaRa be better?Read More »

Schwalbe Furious Fred

I've had a few of these in the past, all 29 x 2.0, but I've never had one this light! Yes, it's an Ikea scale, but it's been pretty accurate so far. So, let's say it's a few grams off, that's still stupid-light! All of the other Furious Fred 29er tires I've had have been in the 348-358g range. ... Read More »
