Date Reviewed: April 4, 2003

Strengths:    Superlight, climbs like a hardtail on uphill technical and even tarmac, REALLY flies on downhill and flat( off-road and on-road) very nimble, a hardtail but with rear sus!!!

Weaknesses:    Leaky negative chamber on rear S.I.D shock,
feels a little dead on very smooth fire road climbs only!?!?
no disk hubs! Ritchey brakes are USELESS!!!!!!!!(which is why the '03 models have a fox lockout rear shock and Avid brakes!!) VERY expensive!!!

Bottom Line:   
The best full sus XC bike around, can do very long trails beautiful too!! Looks great, works very VERY well, has changed this Hardtail lover into a full sus lover( and I won't go back!!) I also won the Sports National Points Series on this bike, after coming in the top 5 for the last couple of years on my Hardtail!!!
4 Flamin' Chills for the rear shock, non disk hubs, and CRAP ritchey brakes, very high price
5 +++++++ Flamin'Chills for the rest of an awesome full sus XC Bike ( not that badly speced )
