Strengths:    super stiff frame will last forever, killer curnutt air shock is plush on big hits, especially for a short travel frame, four inches of travel never felt so good, i have taken this bike off of an 8 foot+ drop with a nice tranny and didnt feel any impact, i love this bike, it is the perfect all-around bike for the aggressive all-mountain rider, not just a 4x or dirt jumper, this bike is a great trail bike if you are coming off a dh bike but want something a lot lighter but with a similar laid-back geometry and strength, the curnutt air is very responsive to changes in air pressure, rebound and platform making the bike very versital, and the hydroformed top tube looks like a friggin moto gas tank, very cool

Weaknesses:    none whatsoever, if you are even thinking of buying a custom frame you know that you get what you pay for so the price is not an option, foes frames are the ultimate in bicycle technology and they are made in the u.s., go red, white and blue!

Bottom Line:   
nice choice for the aggressive all-mountain rider who wants a quick, responsive bike that rails bermed corners, floats over jumps, and pedals like a dream, i race dh on an '05 mono and i love it but when im out freeriding on the local trails or riding the lifts at plattekill or diablo i take the 4x because it feels so good to whip around and hammer out of corners, it handles nasty rock gardens great as long as i keep the speed down compared to the mono which has almost 3 times the rear wheel travel, this bike is so much fun to ride, thanks brent foes!

4x frames that can climb, trail frames that can be jumped?

I have a steel DJ bike and a dh race bike. I need something in between that can do trail rides with 10 mile climbs and pedal well but still jump well. I want it to be really stiff with a thru axle rear preferably. About 5" travel. Can a trance hold up to some big jumps, with a 150mm fork? Other ... Read More »

Question about 2009 marzocchi 4x upper tube assembly replacement

I just bought a used 2009 norco 4x and noticed that the stanchions have some terrible chips on the surface area. I was wondering if anyone knew how much a upper assembly would cost or if there was any way I could limp-fix this until I buy a new fork. I know this isnt the right forum but I also notic ...

Used Marzochi 4X 2007 - need opinions

Hello everyone, I've been looking for a replacement for my Marzocchi Drop Off fork since I was "lucky" enough and scratched its stanchions quite badly and I ran into a guy selling this 4X 2007 fork for $125. iirc these 2007 forks were still made in Italy and had a reputation of being burly and ...
