Strengths:    Great Fork
Rear Suspension has lots of travel
Shimano Disc Brakes are amazing
Shimano Deore Front and rear derauiller+ levers
SRAM cassetee is seperated so if you wear down parts of it you dont have to buy a new casette just the parts you need


Weaknesses:    Seatpost it black and scratches when you take it off or put it back in

Bottom Line:   
I am into biking, I like to go dont stairs and hit jumps and dropoffs. This bike is amazing it can stand up to abuse. I got it with the disc brakes and the Marzocchi Bobmer fork with is a million times better then the one they tried to sell me. I would reccomend to anyone who has $1600+ tax (canadian) to purchase this bike. It has everything you need it to. The shimano deore derauillers work amazing. The only thing that i didnt like about this whole bike was the seatpost because the paint scratched off and it looks like a Wal-Mart bike. This bike is so good i sugest everyone to buy one. So it gets 5 flamin' chili for value and overall rating.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the $ rides well and it can take a beating
great value for the dollar
the only thing missing is the lock-out on the rear shock but the arrow head has that
even without the lock out it climbs like a dream

Date Reviewed: May 25, 2002

Strengths:    LX Drivetrain w/SRAM 7.0 Cassette, Nice smooth riding Judy XC fork, and SID XC rear suspension.

Weaknesses:    No lockout on rear shock, but that's a personal preference.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike for the dollar, like pretty much all Devincis. Close in quality to the Arrowhead, makes for a good XC bike. BUT BEWARE... If you order in an Extra Small, you'd better be prepared to buy a Camelback, or some such, for there is not enough clearance to pull out of, or put in a waterbottle, for the mounts are positionned to far up on the downtube. The only thing I didn't like is that there is no lockout on the rear suspension, so straight line performance suffers in this category. Handles the terrain nicely, though.

2002 Devinci Chili Pepper chain stay

would love to add disk brakes to my 2002 Chili Pepper, but I do not really want to invest an additional $200+ on the chain stay it would require, since the factory frame does not accomodate disk brakes on the back. anyone have a 2003 chili pepper that they wrecked and would like to sell the backe ...
