    Strengths:    Great shocks, great feel, good center of gravity/handling

    Weaknesses:    tires were very bad in the muddy soil

    Bottom Line:   
    great bike. I would reccomend it to anyone who likes more slopestyle/bike park than super fast downhill, great for drops and jumps. Jumps just as well as my HT, which is great. It's surprisingly light, too. My friend has a BigHit, and it's about 25% lighter, which is a nice advantage. Since the bike is designed to be small, the center of gravity is very low, giving great stability. However, i was surprised at how the juicy 5's were not great. I run a pair of 3's, and they work much better. Probably because of poor setup, since i rented it. Also, a bit expensive for its value, explaining the 3 chilis for the value/quality.

    Great bike! i'm getting the '08 in spring!
    Dont buy this bike if you suck. it's not meant for you.

    Build SX Trail vs. Great deals on Slayer SS 396? (First FR bike)

    Selling off my climbing gear; the local biking makes me want a bigger bike. I own an '08 Enduro SL, which is great, but I'd like to try a bigger/slacker bike that is intended for some of the kind of riding in the PNW/BC. Yes, I'm a NOOB. There, I said it. But that doesn't mean I won't get better, ... Read More »

    slayer ss 396 can I use a 180mm fork?

    Is anyone running a setup like this. I ended up with a slayer SS 396 it doesn't have a ton of travel but is a fun bike. I was thinking of putting a single crown long travel fork on the front and make it my shuttle bike.Read More »
