Submitted by JMA a Weekend Warrior from Phoenix, AZ, USA

Date Reviewed: February 7, 2010

Strengths:    Super stiff, great geometry for freeride and the weekend shuttles. Craftmanship is beautiful. Hard to find in US and I doubt I will ever come across someone who has one in AZ. Love, love, love this frame.

Weaknesses:    The area on the swingarm where you can attach a tower for a front derailleur is a perfect point for catching dog poo. Solution: Don't run over fresh dog poo...or jail hikers who don't pick up after their dogs...jerks.

Bottom Line:   
This bike makes me so much faster on the downhills than my AM bike. The rear suspension feels buttery smooth and I don't feel any stiffening when braking, the bike tracks well, is super stiff, and it is nice to look at. This bike kicks tail and I am super happy with it.
