Date Reviewed: March 26, 2010

Strengths:    light weight, smooth shifting, great brakes, painted graphics(no decals), good wheels and tires

Weaknesses:    brakes take awhile to seat in.

Bottom Line:   
For the price you just cannot beat it! Cannondale bikes with the same quality components are almost twice the price. The same for Speacialized and the rest.
Dollar value exceptional. The real bottom line is someone In the U.S. needs to start importing these.

Strengths:    Simply awesome!..Had mine 9 months, gone 5000km and its still just amazing...faultless. i've thrown EVERYTHING at it and it just keeps getting better! Nothing has ever gone wrong with it and its solid as a rock

great ergonomics - munches up hills, flies down em. Rebas + poploc = perfect. Oro brakes are really responsive. 11kg isn't too bad for throwing on yer back if you need to


Weaknesses:    Oro's were a bit squeaky for a long while! they bedded in eventually and was worth the wait

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line is - if you want a bike you will truly love and you have 900quid, get this. if you don't, save up! you cannot get better value for money and it will never let you down. you'll understand!

Strengths:    Beautiful fork, poploc is such a lovely function - way more useful than you imagine. Nice geometry, makes you really go for it! very swift gear changes with the XT/LX kit and the ORO's are amazing brakes for the money.

Oh, yeah, and a very attractive coat- so much better than the crappy pictures make out- dont be a wuss, go for the white and blue, its just lovely


Weaknesses:    Brakes took a while to get set up right but didn't need bleeding or anything, just a bit of fiddling, not a big point.

Needed chunkier tyres for wet Scottish riding, but at 2.25" they dont come much better as stock- better than Kenda Nevegal and the likes, been replaced with Panaracer Smokes, but they are good winter tyres for most bits, just Scotland is really wet and muddy


Bottom Line:   
A perfect bike for the amateur who really loves a dream bike that does everything you want it to, I cant think of anything wrong with it - Lovely, I havent experienced it when tail end "jumps like a little crazy horse."

Date Reviewed: August 28, 2008

Strengths:    This bavarian beauty is awesome (no im not german, im mexican and live in austria). It climbs like an Alp goat, it breaks af it had claws, i totally love the PopLoc concept on the front fork. The tires....speechles (my favourites) Nobby Nic in the rear wheel and Racing Ralph on the front. its light (ca. 11Kg). and i totally love the look in anodized black, it looks so cool.

Weaknesses:    Not sold in America!!!

Bottom Line:   
Incredible bike, super climber, just drop the seat and there U go rocking down the alps.

Although when the terreain is bumpy with rocks and big tree roots, the tail jumps like a little crazy horse. (well after all is a Hardtail and not an Allmountain right?).
