Date Reviewed: March 15, 2008

Strengths:    Extremely light, the 2007 model is only 10.7kg. As it uses the SRAM components which are lighter, also with the juicy 5 brakeset. The Rockshox REBA fork is in my opinion the best XC fork on the market MUCH MUCH more adjustable than the SID or any FOX..

Weaknesses:    because the frame is anodised instead of painted it scratches easily - paint weighs more, the new models are painted for this reason, i'll take the weight savings thank you.

Bottom Line:   
The standard set up on this bike is 10/10 especially for weight weenies, the ritchey upgrades bring the weight down to just over 10.1 KG's the lightest aluminium bike on the market. there are carbon frames heavier than this baby. The 2007 model kicks the crap out of the 2008 model.

160 HS1 vs 180 Light wave

I have a 2014 rockhopper with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes 160mm back and 180mm up front. I don't have much to test them against but I like them. They seem to stop me easy enough. Anyway one of the locals sold me a set of 2013 Avid XO brakes and 160mm HS1 rotors for almost nothing. So my question is ... Read More »

I bought a pair of northwave extreme winter gtx mtb shoes from a vendor at the trailhead swap meet. They were brand new, and I tried them on a couple times there, and a couple when I got home. Today I went to install my cleats and when I put the shoe on, the boa system cord snapped. Shoe is unusable ... Read More »

Anyone need a 90's Tioga Shock Wave susp Fork?

I just bought a 80 Laguna Cruiser. PO modified it to be a commuter. I am restoring original so some of the parts are available if anyone's interested. The forks are probably off a 90's Trek 930. What's on comes with it as I have no use for it. Would love to trade a Laguna 26 fork for it, would put m ... Read More »

The thin wavy metal rings that go on top of the cartridge and under the c-clip.on the the older Judy series. No luck in the local hardware and big box stores. I'm looking for a few to finish some vinta ... Read More »
