    Strengths:    Great price, soaks up bumps and has a nice head angle. Use a 100 mm fork or less.

    Weaknesses:    A bolt loosened up on a 24 race I was relaying in. Maybe a tad heavy if paying full price ($900.00 us). It may be a bit heavier than others in the same bracket. 7ish lbs for the large frame. $900 is too much for this frame.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a decent single pivot frame and might be even better with an rp23 shock or Push'ed. I would not pay full price. There is a bit of flex in the rear but that can be part of the fun if you know how to ride it. I recommend nothing greater than a 100 mm fork, it would lift too much in the climbs. So far it has been a fun ride and time will tell about the quality.

    Strengths:    Price, decent looking, good amount of travel.

    Weaknesses:    Not the prettiest welds, Fox's Float RL not their best work.

    Bottom Line:   
    I built this for my wife to ride, but I put my seat and pedals on it and ride it on longer rides. It is a fun bike to ride. As it is, it built up @ 28lbs. Lighter wheel would get it to pretty respectable weight for a 4.5 travel bike. Climbs well, descends good. I am not to fond of the Fox Rl shock, but that is easily changed.

    Strengths:    Lightweight, excellent shock absorption characteristics, eye-catching design

    Weaknesses:    Glossy paint scratches easily (very sensitive--you've got to be careful of nearby sharp or even dull pointed objects)

    Bottom Line:   
    It's the best XC Full Suspension Bike at a reasonable price...The design complements comfort and stability on rough roads when paired with entry-level or high-end supension systems...Riding on pavements makes you feel as if you're floating in the air...I recommend it for riders who enjoy "torturing" their MTB's while experiencing some sense of "calmness"...

    Strengths:    Super tight frame - light weight with great linkage. forget the bigger names getting rich off their name and not the product.

    Weaknesses:    nada- and doubt any to come.

    Bottom Line:   
    this is a superb design for a xc/ all mountain bike, no lateral shake. Best mountain bike i have ever owned and will never need to buy another!

    RockShox XC 32 TK Coil to Solo Air Conversion

When I install the Solo Air it doesn't fully seat so I can't engage the threads on the top ... Read More »
