Strengths:    6.6 inch rear travel without bob in a single pivot system

Weaknesses:    perhaps, it may not be able to select anyone shock that swinger in the serial set up.

Bottom Line:   
An autentic endurance-FR bike. So lighter for its segment, weights 32.45Lb. It's obvious this machine goes down like a patriot missil but really, really amazing, it's possibilities of set up to transformer in a marathon bike. Only five minutes to set up pressures and travels of SPV and TST dial from Marzocchi forx. A grasshopper with 170mm travel in booth wheels or a marathon-endurance machine with 130mm. What do you like it?
