Strengths:    Great bike! Very light (XT kit)and very fast. Turns on a dime. It feels like 100% of my pedal stroke goes straight to the back wheel.

Weaknesses:    Pivot bushing has a bad squeak after 6 months of riding. I had it replaced and it has been flawless ever since.

Bottom Line:   
If you are looking for a great cross country bike, you won't regret this purchase!

Strengths:    This bike is light, pedals well, can be singlespeed with out chain tensioning device.

Weaknesses:    Decals, but to be fair I tape things to my bike in endurance races so any decal would chip off with the tape.

Bottom Line:   
This bike ripps, if you lose dont blame the bike, blame your lack of preperation. Really this bike has everything anyone could want in a bike, simple service, fast, and awesome looking.
Dont buy this bike if you are just going to fart around on some trails. Although it could take decades of riding.
This bike is a pure bred race steed, and therefore would be unhappy spinning up climbs, it wants to be hammered.
I have tried to justify buying a new bike, but can't.

Fat Tire Revelation in Snow: Narrower Front, Fatter Rear.

Running a 4.8" or 5" front tire can bog you down in certain situations. Fresh pow (250 to 300g/cm^3) tends to build up at the front tire and you try to dig in with the rear, and switch to a lower gear to get above the snow and "float". Then you can spin out because of the buildup of snow at the ... Read More »

I'm confident I can figure out how to remove and reseal... but welcome any helpful t ... Read More »

2010 Reba vs. 2014 Revelation

I hate to do another one of these "vs." threads but I need a little input here. I've had the same reba on Canfield Yelli Screamy for a long time now. It is a 2010 reba 140 with a 20mm axle. Essentially the revelation a year before they started calling it that. It's a dual air rlt ti and with the cur ... Read More »

FOX 32 CTD and DRCV Shock to RockShox Monarch RT/ Revelation Solo Air - Opinions?

My good old 26" Trek FS came with FOX Evolution 32 CTD and FOX DRCV Shock, good performance but I did not know any better. Just bought a Kona Process 111 that comes with RockShox Revelation RL Solo Air and Monarch RT. What should I expect? I did ride a tiny bit and it felt softer, however nothing w ... Read More »
