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?

Cove STD Suspension Set Up

I have a 2010 Cove STD with a Fox RC2. Sag is set at 28 %, LSC 2 in and rebound 3 out. I find the rear suspension is fine for big hits, drops, and cornering etc but is a bit unresponsive to regular trail undulations and smaller hits. I do not know if this is a trait of my set-up or the bike's sus ... Read More »

180 Float - Std or taper steerer?

It's replacing an '08 Team Boxxer on my Maelstrom (thought I'd be spending more time at lift-assisted parks, who ever thought I'd actually enjoy pedaling this pig on local trails) frame. Which I believe is 44 top and bottom. Correct? I'm leaning towards sacrificing a bit of stiffness with the tapere ... Read More »

Of course, that study was made for 29ers, but I g ... Read More »

Hi all, I have been given a lot of awesome advice in this forum, and I think I decided that I'm going to buy new. A store by me has a blowout sale. I would prefer not to spend over $500. My question is about the difference between the 2010 Specialized Rockhopper ($495) vs the 2010 Specialize ... Read More »
