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!

Specialized new 4x-sealed cartridge bearing HiLo hub - User Feedback

I've noticed a lot of MTBR threads bashing the old Specialized HiLo hubs that came on higher end bikes with OEM Roval wheels (i.e. StumpJumper, Enduro, etc.). However, there seems to be very little feedback on the new 4x-sealed cartridge bearing that Specialized has been using since 2013. Generall ... Read More »
