Submitted by Matthew Pearce a Cross Country Rider from Sydney, NSW, Australia

Date Reviewed: June 17, 2002

Strengths:    New Hot Links rear swing arm setup stops a lot of the bobbing up and down, whilst trecking along horizontal trails. Improved Hayes Cable Disc Brakes, Much faster than Fairlane 2001

Weaknesses:    Typical teething problems, initial disc brake squeeling, bottom bracket loosening, Rear suspension swing arm sticking, But all fixed in 6 week free service

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for someone who wants to kick around on something reliable, I personally am set in my ways and ride mainly my local tracks, and for that I really don't a top end piece. hydrolic disc brakes and top-end suspension would be a bit of overkill for what I want to do. Kind of like purchasing a pentium 4 5000 Gigahertz computer to play pac-man. For your local basher, the perfect bike.
