Strengths:    Ridiculously light, strong frame, smooth shifting, great stopping power, looks amazing, quality components just a wonderful bike.

Weaknesses:    Zero

Bottom Line:   
I really love this bike. Bought it off a buddy because he is upgrading, but wow. This bike is quick, light and stays suprisingly well planted on the trails. Extremely happy with this purchase. I also found that climbing is significantly easier with this bike. I had always struggled with this previously. Bike is very predictable and easy to manouver on trails. Out riding in Canmore right now and the element is preforming like a champ. Would definititely recommend this bike for cross country enthusiasts.

Strengths:    Reliable proven design. Efficient, fast, simple. Beautiful build... would hardly change a thing (maybe the seat). Great looking.

Weaknesses:    ME! Other than that I can say my only complaint is tight mud clearance on rear wheel.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. Aside from the wow factor and the beautiful paint job this bike is a fast, flawless ride. It's comfortable and efficient on long marathon type rides/races. And fast and snappy on the quick rides. Shifts so perfectly and is super easy to dial in. I barely had to do anything to keep this bike in flawless performance shape all year... just kept polishing/lubing it up after the rides. People get caught up in all of these different linkage systems... Rockymountain has found something that works and it's hard to beat which is why I keep gravitating back to this bike, and it's why most of my friends keep dropping further back when they ride with me.

Strengths:    This bike ROCKS. Just got it today and did my first ride. It does everything you want your mountain bike to do. I was faster and felt fresh after a two hour hard ride.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I wish I bought this bike years ago. Jessie at Adrenaline Bikes spent a lot of time with me, making sure I got everything right. He explained how this bike would be perfect for me and my style of riding. Jessie is the Man,
I had to pick the bugs out of my teeth because I was smiling the whole ride. This bike will make all your riding dreams come true.

Difference between 2009 element 90 and element team

Only difference is the material right? Scandium on team and 7005 on 90. 2009's aren't on the site anymore and it doesn't look like the element 90 exists in 2010. Thanks.Read More »

Right size Element 90?

I'm asking for a little advice. I currently ride a size 18 2005 element and am able to get a good deal on a size 19 used 2008 element 90 . Unfortunately, the bike is on the other side of the country and I do not know anyone with a 19 inch 2008 element frame, so I'm unable to ride it to get a feel fo ... Read More »

2008 Element 90

It's a done deal, the 2008 Element 90 will be my main ride/race steed for 2008! I'm stoked, I've never ridden an FS before so I'm hoping it will live up to the hype. I'm planning on racing at the Elite level provincially next season, thus I wanted to a FS bike to smooth things out over the longer ... Read More »
