Strengths:    Tight welds, sick paint, beefyness, full housing setup, replacable dropouts.

Weaknesses:    NONE

Bottom Line:   
This thing is a Whistler machine!!!! Sick for fast lines, jumps, wall rides, anything urban influenced. Rides amazingly well on tight skinnies because of the wheelbase. Can take a huge beating. Totally sick, has changed my riding since I got it.

Strengths:    Light, no flex, bomb-proof, semi-monocoque frame looks the business. A high-tech answer to the Kona Humu.

Weaknesses:    Tender paint.

Bottom Line:   
This is the 2004 SS version of the Rumble. This thing is a radical upgrade from my old steel-framed Kona. It is much lighter, and maybe a little stiffer in the bottom-bracket area. The welds are perfect everywhere and give me the goosebumps to look at them. I hate the thought of mummifying the bike in duct tape. The frame geometry was intended for a suspension fork, so when I installed my stubby and rigid Project2 fork, the steering became hyper-kineticaly responsive. This is good - I can think turns on this thing. If you are in the market for a fourth or fifth bike for your stable, then a SS makes perfect sense. Since the Kona Humu has long been extinct, I highly recommend the Rumble S-1 as an alternative.

Strengths:    -Monocoque Gussets "makes this bike super burly and strong"
-Machined Chainstay Yokes "you can really feel the stiffness in this rear end and it has some great clearence for fatty tires!"

Bottom Line:   
This bike is F@#$EN awesome I really put it through its paces as an all around bike. I beat it twice a week at the sk8 park, and use it about 3x's a week on DJ's. As an urban bike it has been my all time Fav! The low top tube makes it an ideall bike for tricks (no fotted cans, anything where u would need room in the cockpit!!) I like this frame sooooooooooo much i bought another but the single speed version!
-If your big into DJ's, park riding, Trials, and SICK Urban get this bike will take an As# pounding and leave you secure that it will handle anything you can dish out!!
