Strengths:    Looks smart
Rapid braking
Good support from regional representive for issues


Weaknesses:    - rubber handle grips came off after 1st month!
- formula RX braking produces a loud embarrasing screeching nosie after day 1 (will never buy this brand again!)
- front disk produces sounds an vibrations at high speeds
- rear continental tire had to be replaced after 1st month. defective but cause unknown


Bottom Line:   
- My pervious bike was a trek, and while the components were simplier I had far less problems.
- I will definetly replace the braking system
- I will definetly seek another brand for my next bike

Strengths:    Fast, Light, fantastic parts spec. for the price. The germans really do get it right! oh, and i love formula breaks!

Weaknesses:    The tires... and the tires, conti's suck for ottawa riding, the natural rubber doesnt hold for sh?t on wet rock or damp rock, heck, even wearing a camel back on a rock is too much moisture for these tires. That said, everything else is sick, and the tires were easy to change

Bottom Line:   
My first disc break was a fomula. It sucked, i rode it downhill with pride, and crashed a lot cause it needed bleeding as soon as you squeezed the lever. This new iteration of the formula break is a different animal all together, light, powerful, sexy, fantastic. Also, in the past i have really disliked rockshocks, but the new generation of forks they are puting out is nice. Ill have to see how it lasts tho. My only real beef with this bike is that I found it for cheeper at another shop like a week after I bought it.

What's changed in the last 8 years?

So, I was pretty hardcore into riding 2003-2005. I have an '03 Specialized Epic. I am starting to get into riding again and was wondering what might have changed over the last 8 years that I have been MIA? I know that 29ers are becoming a thing now, what else? Thanks! AdamRead More »

4.8's on 2013 Mukluk?

I'm in the process of building up a 2013 Mukluk 2 frame. I'll probably be going with Rolling Daryl rims and was wondering about 4.8 tire fitment. This will mostly be a winter ride but will see some year round use as well. Anyone running 4.8's on your Mukluk? Suggestions? Any input would be appreciat ... Read More »

How should my forks feel? Could any 2013 Fuel EX 8 owner's please help me?

Hi, I bought a 2013 Fuel EX8 about 2 weeks ago. I'm new to FOX shocks and MTB in general, I'm looking for some answers. When I bought the bike I was shown how to use the 3 settings trail, climb, descend. I specifically noticed the climb setting behaving similar to a lock-out. I understand it' ... Read More »
