Strengths:    Great components, very stiff in big climbs, fast, awesome canadian frame!

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy but that's all

Bottom Line:   
Very good FS bike for the price (2000$ cdn) with a superb handbuilt frame. Excellent rear suspension, you will not loose power on ascent even when the lockout isn't on. The RS Duke on the front is a hot new release for Rock Shox this year, lightweigt and efficient. Good wheelset too with Mavic X-221 rims and Irc tires.

The only small negative point is the weigt (28 lbs), but this bike is so fun to ride and well made that you will forget this fact very fast. Also, plan to upgrade the crank(but the stock crank is very reliable).

Final point; DEVINCI ROCKS!! If you want a race FS bike well equipped for an intelligent price, this bike is for you.

Strengths:    Very nice bike. This is a great all round lightweight bike that'll put a smile on any rider's face. Same frame as Moonracer for $2000 CDN cheaper.

Weaknesses:    Very good all round bicycle

Bottom Line:   
This is the perfect bike for anyone who is a cycling enthusiast, enjoys hitting the local trails. This is about as much bang for the buck as you can get in a full suspension XC format in this price range. Being a hartail enthusiast, I even loved the bike because of the rear lockout. If you wanna go fast without losing a lot of power, this is the ideal option for straight line performance. Nice bike, and the colour is unbelievably very nice in person. Selle Italia Trans Am leather seat is a beaut!

Strengths:    good suspension, good component mix, great value. Leather seat

Weaknesses:    this bike is no lightweight, you'll feel it on the climbs

Bottom Line:   
As an entry-level FS bike, i'd recommend the Arrowhead to anyone who is looking for a top-quality bike that won't fail you on the trail. The ride is ultra smooth and Devinci even throws in a real leather seat!

Lake Arrowhead

I'm heading out to Palm Springs this weekend and am thinking about stopping by Lake Arrowhead on the way out. I won't have my bike, but any recommendations for things to do and see?
