    Strengths:    Lightweight, great parts, serious travel, crisp handling, great value

    Weaknesses:    Rear shock needs breaking-in, perfectible brakes, weak painting

    Bottom Line:   
    Great value. You never get a 4.5" rear travel bike at this price. I recommend this bike to any beginner-medium XC biker who is looking for a well-performing bike without breaking the bank.
    The SR fork works well. It is soft (which good for some and bad for others) and has a lockout (!) and working preload adjusts. The rear shock (X-Fusion Glyde R) needs breaking-in so be patient. My only gripe about this bike is that the brakes can be more powerful. Yes, they do stop you, but you can get better ones.
    Despite the big frame size (21" for me) this bike is light (I can easily raise it by one arm) and handles very precisely. I've demo'd a Chumba EVO before which was considered "the most razor-sharp handling bike ever". The R1 comes very close.
    Great bike!

I was thinking that a FS bike would help relieve some of the back and neck issues due to a softer ride. I am trying to find something under $ 1,000. The ... Read More »

    Shift R1 - Change the Fork or Rear Shock First?

    Hello - I recently got a Shift R1. I don't like the front or the rear shock, otherwise I love the bike. My question is should I switch the front or the rear shock if I can't afford to do both (unless I find some sweet deal on ebay)? Thanks, and I apologize if this is a dumb question :) MattRead More »
