FRM 10HP XC Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)


Product Description

The 10HP suspension has been designed to enhance the pedal efficiency, slightly compromising the total efficiency of the suspension. This short travel suspension is designed for X-country racers who need light-weight, lightning-fast accellerating machines, with the lateral rigidity and the nimble handling of hardtails, but bob-free when pedalling and with better impact absorbtion of their rigid counterparts.

Strengths:    light - reactive

Weaknesses:    not so reliable and components fine tuning pretty difficult

Bottom Line:   
I have been using my Be Active for 15 years.... bought it in 1995.... used it for many kms... loads of fun. I had loads of problems in setting up the rear derailleur as the suspension movement was inducing some gear changes... and after 15 years (and 20 more kgs) I broke the frame right behind the steering. most likely caused by fatigue and change of mechanic characteristics of aluminum. I would say that can be expected and is not to be addressed negatively to a product that gave the the time of my life.

Au contraire, I have to say GRAZIE FRANCO FOR HAVING DESIGNED A WONDERFUL BIKE.
