    Strengths:    Very welcoming geometry, you feel immediately at home on this bike. Very agile bike, easy to throw around and jumps great for a XC bike.
    Good component package, I only swapped the straight alu bars to carbon lo-risers and at some the Juicys had enough of it, and switched to Elexirs. Never had any problems with gears, wheels, etc.

    Weaknesses:    Frame weight is a little higher when you compare to other modern frames these days.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great, agile bike that will give you lots of fun rides!

    Strengths:    good looks, nice geometry, light weight.

    Weaknesses:    non-existant headset.

    Bottom Line:   
    I've spent the last 2 weeks of my life looking for a headset that works. don't know if this only accounts for my bike, but there has to be something wrong with the IS-style headset. Don't ever bother with integrated headsets... CK FTW.

    Strengths:    Light, comfortable and fast

    Weaknesses:    none yet

    Bottom Line:   
    Rode a trek fuel 90 last year but felt like I was getting lazy and I missed the full speed feeling you get on hardtail. Was a bit worried that going back to a hardtail would be too uncomfortable, wrong! This bike is a really really good bike for both maraton and xc events. It wieghts less than a scale 30 and is the smoothest xc race bike I've ever ridden. Look at Commencals website and read the press report on the flame page, I can say the report is correct.

    Kenda Flame & Rolling Darryl's?

    Has anyone used the 3" Kenda flame tire on Unholy Rolling Darryl rims? My wife wants to ride her Mukluk on some summer urban rides & we need to swap the Nate's to make it bearable for her. Guessing there are other slick tire options but I don't want to spend a ton O' cash for summer rubber.Read More »

    Putting on flame retardant vest... Is this an option for a fat bike on a budget?

    Ok, I'm assuming thus far that if it really was this simple people would have been trying it already... Has anyone considered starting with a full suspension MTB or DH frame, and converting to a fat bike by adding a production fat fork and a custom tail? I realize it wouldn't be a walk in the pa ...
