    Strengths:    The "strait-up" geometry woks well- ridding up is easier with lesss effort. you don't feel your back like on ther rigs- sit back' enjoy the ride and go faster than most of your mates. This bike will soak up the rockiest trail fast and comfortably/

    Weaknesses:    The "strait-up" geometry works too well. The seat post angle is too slack- 76 degrees! It's not comfortable ridding outside the saddle. Due to that it's difficult ridding faster or harder and it;s more difficult to take on technical climbs.

    Bottom Line:   
    If you're looking for an easy less effort ride- look no further/ Great all around all day bike. Sit back and ride on the saddle. If you're looking for a fast manuverable, work hard-fly fast kind of bike- this is not for you.

    Strengths:    Very robust frame and componants, light(ish), good standover, very high quality suspension.

    Weaknesses:    tires loose grip (slightly) when on smooth rocks
    otherwise none to report yet

    Bottom Line:   
    My first full suspension bike. I wouldn't trade it for any bike of the same value.
    Very smooth ride downhill and a good climber.
    Over all a great bike (in my opinion).

    The people at Evans Cycles were very helpful and even set up the suspension sag etc for me in the shop.
    I would recommend it to anyone

    Bash Guards, 2x10 conversions etc for an Altitude 50

    ok so I went looking for a bash guard for my Altitude 50. I was under the impression that they would bolt on, however the guy at the LBS said that usually, people replace the big ring with a bash guard. I am ok with this as I rarely use the big ring anyway so I went ahead and purchased one. This wo ... Read More »
