Cove Bikes STD Freeride Full Suspension

5/5 (3 Reviews)
MSRP : $2850.00

Product Description

Based on our deep plush Shocker platform, the STD is a 7.5-inch freeride version of our super successful DH bike, recognized by Mountain Biking Magazine as "DH Bike of the Year". The STD featured an un-interupted seat tube and a super stiff 1.5 head tube designed to let you shove it and raise it, slaying the downs and beating the hell out of the ups. This is the perfect Shore bike, because like Chaz says, "you gotta have the strength to giver on the climb and hang on for the descents."

Strengths:    I ride a Heckler done up more for freeride than XC and am a good intermediate, A Line @ Whistler is fun on the Heckler. wanted to move up to a freeride so bought an STD XO kit. Went to Whistler first run A Line, my review is WOW. Point, hang on, enjoy the rush. My riding buddy is expert rated, rides Demo 8, the STD won the run by a couple secs.We switched rides, met him an hour later, his review, who needs a groomed run get off the lift and go anywhere, wanna trade?

Process 153 as Cove STD replacement?

Last fall, I built up a Cove STD, and have been loving it. It charges chunder and freeride lines with confidence-inspiring ease, and the CCDBa CS makes it pedal admirably well. Even so, there is a limit to how how sprightly a 38lb bike can feel on trail. All the rave reviews of the Process 153 ... Read More »

I was hoping to convert it to 135mm x 12mm thru axle. I called SRAM and they said that hub is not convertible. Forever the doubter I took the hub a ... Read More »

Play in lower link on a std Mojo

I have a Mojo bought early 2008, I have replaced both links once, but last time just did the bearings. However I am getting some play in the lower link, the bolts are as tight as they will go, and the only other thing I can notice is one of the smaller bearings has some slight play in the link. Any ... Read More »
