Submitted by Matt Sakko from Jeffreys Bay

Date Reviewed: May 24, 2008

Strengths:    Very Sturdy Frame! Taken it down 7 meter drops and it's still going strong, Training wheels keep it steady on the corners. would be a good buy for man united players.

Weaknesses:    Knees always touch the handle bar. and lost a training wheel at whistler which cost me 11 dollars.

Bottom Line:   
I strongly reccomend it for Christiano Ronaldo, but if you're not gay then buy the Barney fun pedlar.

Date Reviewed: May 5, 2008

Strengths:    Good quality

Weaknesses:    Very heavy 9.5 kg!!! Comparing to adult weight that would be 40 kg bike for 70 kg rider!

Bottom Line:   
My daughter (3) can ride without the wheelies and this bike is heavy for her. She can not control it when not riding. She can not pick it up. I am buying a lighter bike for her.

Submitted by Kawena a Weekend Warrior from Honolulu, HI

Date Reviewed: February 21, 2006

Strengths:    Full Chain Guard, Low Standover Height Frame, Back and Front Fenders, Ergonomic Handlebars, Safty Pads on Handlebars and Neck, Cool Paint and Bar-end Streamers

Bottom Line:   
I created a list before shopping for my son's first bike. My list included, low stand-over frame, full chain guard, steel rims, safety padding and back and front fenders. I then looked at Specilized, Trek, Giant and Gary Fisher bikes, limiting my search to "Premium" brands. Every model I looked at lacked something from my list, until I came across the Tiger. It had everthing on the list and looked pretty cool to boot (Gotta love the streamers!). Great value, compared to the other bikes I listed. The research paid off, with smiles from my 3 year old, everytime he rides it.

Submitted by tIM from Cumming, GA USA

Date Reviewed: October 2, 2005

Strengths:    Indestructible

Weaknesses:    Heavy, but that might not be bad for a kid's bike

Bottom Line:   
My son loves this bike. He rides it for hours at a time and it runs strong. The brakes work well and that's important for a 3 year old. The training wheels are adjustable so it's a good bike for teaching purposes.

Tiger this winter: what's closed when?

Anyone know about winter closure plans for Tiger? With the great new sustainably built trails I'm wondering if more of the mountain will stay open all year; seems like OTG could hold up quite well, unlike the Preston River. If the summit's closed, will the Fully Rigid/Silent Swamp/Joyride trifecta ... Read More »


[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]The Canfield Brothers Balance is here, and I know many people are very excited for this beast of an all mountain bike to be hitting the trails!

Tiger Enduro Hecklers Rock

Ok, so there's lots of rock up there, but not really "A" rock, regardless, we're going up to cheer and heckle the racers. We'll have music and costumes and cow-bells. Yea, you're thinkin' that sounds a little like cyclocross, not [B][COLOR="#0000FF"]ENDURO[/COLOR][/B][SUP]TM[/SUP]! Meh, we're h ... Read More »

Tiger trials - right of way question.

The official line, not what we went it to be ;). My ride group had differing opinions on downward trials not marked. I thought signage was complete on this topic but as of yesterday it didn't seem so. As of today EMBA trail wiki is sparse too. What I know thus far: E Summit is marked as descender ... Read More »
