Cove Bikes Hooker 2002 Full Suspension

4.5/5 (2 Reviews)


Product Description

Cove Bikes introduces the Hooker, their knock-out dual slalom ripper. Capable of taking four inches in the rear, the Hooker is irresistible to the raddest of rippers. It's the perfect tool for big kickers and innovative to-transition airs. A dramatically sloping top tube, gusseted front-end and new suspension platform that joins the lateral stiffness of an around the bb main pivot with a travel arc that keeps chain length the same, the Hooker's one of the coolest race bikes we've ever designed. If you're into to pushing your limits, get it on with a Hooker.

Strengths:    Very strong frame, and the components last

Weaknesses:    It is a little heavy, and it is definatly not a dual slolam bike.

Bottom Line:   
It is a great bike, won't hit huge, but it is sick off of kickers, and jumps, and has incredibly smooth landings, compared to my crap XC bike that I had to put up with until yesterday.
