Strengths:    Finish, Paint Job, hydroformed tubeset, Chainstay mounted disc tab, ride feel, geometry, handling, Designed by the nicest guy in mountain biking

Weaknesses:    I didn't find out about it sooner! Maybe it could use a replaceable derailleur hanger?

Bottom Line:   
This is by far the nicest hardtail I've ever ridden. It's handling is intuitive and inspires confidence. Most hardtails I've ridden usually have some weakness that you end up just compensating for, maybe in the way they turn in or get sketchy at speed or wander on climbs. I haven't found any of those traits with this one. It just goes where you want it to. And it's such an outstanding value for the money, with better trail manners than many more expensive alternatives. And that picture of Mt. Tam on the head tube badge is pretty cool too. Thanks for bringing back the Ligntning Team frame with such style Joe.

Breezer Lightning 29 Team

I'm really interested in this frame. I like the styling (seat stays/head set), and I love the feel of steel. Very Ritchey P-29-like. Also, reasonably affordable. And it's a Breezer. However, there are ride reviews on this frame. Has anybody had some saddle time on this bike? And could you giv ... Read More »
