Cove Bikes Peeler 2002 Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)

Product Description

Nine inches of badass rear travel and a brand new suspension platform that's big enough and bad enough to deal with everything from World Cup downhill courses to Dangerous Dan-sized hucks. The technology still uses our revolutionary around the bb main pivot but with a rear suspension angle that enables a plush, rising rate of travel. No pedal feedback or chain slack. Currently the Peeler is in the development stages, but a super-oversized aluminum frame set made from 6013 T62 aluminum and a Fox Vanilla RC shock has shown considerable promise.

Strengths:    Bullet proof, inexpensive, amazing geometry, excellent build quality, climbs remarkably well despite weight, solid feel, handles with confidence anything you can throw at it. Get the 5th Element rear suspension if you're planning on doing any climbing - it almost completely eliminates bob.

Weaknesses:    None as of yet

Bottom Line:   
I've tested about 10 other bikes in the same range, and this bike by far the superior choice. After taking this bike out for a test ride, I knew instantly it was the one for me. Excellent freeride/downhill bike, great for Whistler and the Shore. Very fast and handles big drops and jumps with ease.
