Strengths:    Wicked geometry, right zippy off the line, you can feel how well its made

Weaknesses:    the stock brakes aren't too good, hard to find a dealer

Bottom Line:   
This bike handles awesome. It accelerates just as quick as my specialized did, the steering is more forgiving. Possibly the most comfortable bike I have ever owned. Its nimble on the single track, but not too twitchy. For racing or serious riding you're going to upgrade just about everything(for the price point though, you're getting a nicely equipped ride), but even as it stands, an okay rider do well in a race, a very good rider could place or win.
A note about buying a bike in Barrie, GO TO MONOVANS!!! the only shop around (outside the Hardwood Hills pro shop) that has staff that know what they are talking about!

Most of the riding I do is all mountain type stuff if that helps out with anything. Basically I'm just wondering what are some upgrades I can ... Read More »

Force CX-1 on a 10 speed casette?

Hey, I made a stupid mistake when ordering my custom wheelset, and I'm now stuck with a 10-speed hub and a Force CX-1 group. I'm not really concerned about the 11th gear, since I'll be commuting with this bike and only wanted the single ring goodness of the CX-1. Is it possible to just leave one co ... Read More »

People keep asking me what the difference is and my reply is climbs better and descends waaaay better. I think people are looking for more detailed reasons, unfortunately I'm not at that level of bike knowledge yet. So, why such the huge difference? Or could it be just my new bike exciteme ...

I pulled that out and installed my standard XT der direct and it only has an attachment on the outside of the hangar. Problem is, I am running a 10 sp ... Read More »

SLX shifting - lot of force to shift

I have a new bike with 10-speed STX shifters and rear derailleur. The amount of force that it takes to shift is much higher than what I'm used to with 8 and 9 speed systems. Instead of an easy click, there's a significant amount of force required (particularly when using the thumb actuated lever). ... Read More »
