Strengths:    the frame is a dj frame but i have it setup for DH and i find it perfect for that, it takes whatever i through at it.

Weaknesses:    i only have used the frame from it but i can tell you that the stock parts that come with this bike are no good.

Bottom Line:   
the bike stock is no good but the frame is very strong and good for almost anything. when buying the bike i would sugest you upgrade everything right away.

Date Reviewed: August 28, 2007

Strengths:    Great frame with adj drop outs, 8" brake discs, overall burlyness.

Weaknesses:    The Marzocchi forks adjustment isnt up to much and the kenda tyres - I chucked the kinetics on the back and bought a Maxxis Minion for the front. Sorted. The hayes sole brakes tend to squeal too. Tacky cheap quick releases (still do the job well though).

Bottom Line:   
This bike is excellent value for money. I use it for trail riding, up and downhill and dirt jumping. Its not too heavy and it is well specced for its price. Anyone getting into dirt jumping should seriously consider this bike.

Date Reviewed: June 15, 2007

Strengths:    Strength, geometry, handling, all around kick-a$$-ness

Weaknesses:    Weight? for short riders like me (5 feet 5.5 inches) the bike handles on a dime so handling vs. weight... handling wins so more pros than cons!

Bottom Line:   
AWESOME BIKE! at least the frame. I built this bike up over the cold New England winter in hope of making a bike that fits me (bought a small frame), will be great for college (going to be a freshman at a college in Northwestern NY this coming fall... COLD WINTERS!!! Lake Effect Snow, etc!!!), Get me into Dirt Jumping and Urban riding, especially around campus. This bike also feels great XC riding, granted it's not an xc bike, tiring on long xc rides but gets the job done if I prop the seat up a bit. Great all around bike and even better for the more hardcore stuff. took it to a local skate park and it was awesome! I'm just getting started in the DH/DJ/Urban part of the sport but it looks to be amazing!

Hey Dj - did you catch "300" yet?

Just wondering ... I've been ruminating on why I wasn't entirely satisfied over the last couple days, and I think the answer is ultimately because it wasn't Frank Miller [I]enough[/I] for me. And I know you know the comic better than I - I tried to get ahold of a copy and re-read it at Christmas wi ... Read More »
