Date Reviewed: February 19, 2008

Strengths:    oddly enough, makes my XC geometry bike feel a heck of a lot better on the trails, compared to the stock 90mm GT forged aluminum piece. looks to be a major beefcakes as far as withstanding damage from hard landings. looks real nice. six bolts on the bar clamp area

Weaknesses:    the metal Azonic uses, well, I tightened one side a bit further than I should have before I put the screws on the other side (top-to-bottom) and when I tightened those, the middle screw on the top pulled some threading out of the hole. if at all possible, find longer screws for the bar clamp area! and don't torque down on them as much as you usually do. just get them a little more than snug, and use a little bit of anti-seize grease or a bit of blue loctite.

Bottom Line:   
worth the money paid for it, but the metal leaves a little bit to be desired, at least where the bar clamp screws thread into the main part of the stem. even effectively missing one screw, it will easily hold the bars on and in place. with longer hardware for the bar clamp area (like, maybe 4mm or 5mm longer), it'll really shine. 5 flaming chilis for value because it cost so little for the overall beefy part you get, 4 chilis overall because of the bit with the screws for the bar clamp area.

Enduro 29 or other big wheeled aggro trail bikes?

Anybody have any input on the current generation Spec Enduros, in particular the enduro 29? I’ve had my eye on one for a while, but haven’t been able to afford one. I’ve read the reviews and it sounds like my cup of tea, but I have some reservations, namely the weird shock link and 142+ wheels. I’m ... Read More »

Highest Volume, Aggro Thread 650b Tires?

Will Hope Hoops support 200lb aggro rider?

I've been looking at hope hoops, either with Stans Flow or Mavic 721 rim vs custom wheelset. I weigh a pretty solid 200lbs and I am not a finesse rider. I am pedaling a Specialized Enduro (2010) and I am trashing the wheels and pretty regularly breaking spokes, especially on the rear. Not real ... Read More »

Aggro bees on Sunset today

Just fyi, I was hiking up Sunset from Shultz this afternoon with my kids, about halfway up sat down on a log for a little break. Was there for a minute or so when I noticed a bee buzzing around my face, so I waved my hand slowly to get him to move away. Next thing I know he and a couple of his bud ... Read More »

Does more suspension always mean a "plusher" ride (for aggro XC/ light AM)?

Hey all: Not a biking noob, but I am thinking about getting my first FS bike soon. I like to ride fast when possible, like to challenge myself on every ride, like to climb and descend, and like to have fun biking. I wear T-shirts and use platform pedals (to give you a flavor of what type of rid ... Read More »
