Date Reviewed: May 1, 2008

Strengths:    Well made bike, great frame, fine Marzzochi MX Pro fork, all around good set of components (except for brakes)

Weaknesses:    The Juicy 3 brakes are just lousy, they squeal, vibrate, and they are fading severely on long declines. I just ordered Formula K18 with high hopes of improvement.

Bottom Line:   
This is the 2007 model. It's well made, and I find it very agile and responsive. I've had it now for over 1500 miles of city and trail riding and it's been a great bike so far. Replacing the brakes should make it about as perfect a bike as one can hope for in this price range.

Strengths:    Weight, frame build, fork

Weaknesses:    Shimano pedals, tires

Bottom Line:   
2007 model, awesome deal. RM is a great manufacturer. They build a great, light bike in Canada! Though I am relearning the sport, this bike is making it easy. Shifting, braking, seat are all good. Pedals, tires, and grips need improvement. Great product.
