Strengths:    Light
Pedals well
really tears into downhill corners

Weaknesses:    really none

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great for anyone racing cross country or ride trails with more of a cross country influence. I personally beat the crud out of mine, jumping it and riding it as aggressively as possible. I am really impressed with how much abuse I can put it through and no creaks or anything!

Awesome bike: I would buy one if you get the chance!

Strengths:    Full carbon frame at a great price. I purcased the frame and built it up myself

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I was looking for a good fast bike for racing and one that I could enjoy riding as well, the emphasis being "enjoy". My Wife has ridden it to the podium in a number of local races. It's nimble and responsive. I have the Rocksox monarch 4.2 rear shock and found it does the job fine, I have found the rear end stiff for my use.( I weigh 165lbs)I have the bike wieghing in at 25.10lbs, not bad for a full suspension, though my drive train, brakes and the fork are not the lightest, could change but why bother, not getting any younger. It looks good, the finish is great, and solid.

Date Reviewed: October 9, 2009

Strengths:    Excellent value for a full carbon X-C frame. Plush ride. Focused handling but not twitchy. Carves single track and handles medium bumps exceptionally well.

Weaknesses:    Lacks lateral stiffness at BB. No down tube or BB impact protection. Poor choice for rear shock. Slightly heavy vs. some competition.

Bottom Line:   
This is one of the best values out there for a full carbon X-C weapon. Handling is on par with competitors, the bike looks nice and is finished well. The Monarch shock it comes with is junk, IMO, but there are lots of people who are happy with it. Bottom line, if you want to jump into the carbon mtb arena but don't want to spend crazy money, this is the perfect choice. You won't be disappointed. Blue is a great company with excellent customer service and staff who actually ride.

Blue Ryno Carbon

Has anyone out there had any experience with this bike? I've been seeing a lot of Blue bikes around on the road/cross scene, but not a lot of the mtn stuff. I rode their Norcross, and I must say I was pretty impressed with the ride. They also have a new hardtail XC frame that looks pretty nice... ... Read More »

Anyone have any experience with Bombshell Revolutions? Tied btwn them & Ryno Lite/XT

I was about to buy the Ryno Lite/XT wheels from Price Point when I got a reply back from them telling me that the Revolutions have sealed cartridge bearings. My last set of wheels had sealed cartridge bearings and I like not having to fool with them. So, it's like $50 more but it they're stronger th ... Read More »

Does it matter where I buy a set of Ryno Lite/XT wheels from - Price Point or Jenson?

I'm looking to just get a cheap replacement set of wheels that are fairly strong and I've settled on the Ryno Lite/XT wheels. Is the quality any better buying from Jenson rather than Price Point as far as the build? I noticed that their wheels look different - one having silver spokes and the other ... Read More »
