Strengths:    Very light full susser. Disc ready. Better looking than 03 model.

Weaknesses:    Poor geometery - ride position dangerous

Bottom Line:   
Picked this bike up relatively cheap 12months ago nothing failed after about a billion hours riding. Happy with bike now but out of the box this is a dangerous bike - soft duke fork, long stem and straight bar make for a head over heels experience. On my first ride out I crashed 4 times, when I broke hard I practically went over the bars and when braking on rocks I did go over...repeatedly. My advice is to shorten the stem put a big riser on this way you'll stay on.
Oh yeah due to the weight of this bike its dead twitchy over the loose stuff but that can be fun sometimes.

Strengths:    Better spec and weight than anything else at this price. Smooth ride. Looks good. Simple single pivot. Perfect for long cross country rides, not a jump bike.

Weaknesses:    Disc brakes would be nice. Slightly longer wheelbase might make it a bit more stable.

Bottom Line:   
Lighter and smoother than my hardtail. A good do everything bike as long as you're not into hardcore downhilling. Should make an awesome Polaris bike.

Strengths:    Nearly a year of use and nothing has fallen off or broken. Suspension as sweet as the day bought

Weaknesses:    Frame paintwark prone to chipping by flying gravel. Brakes could do with more bite in wet weather. Only one bottle mount a nusiance when using powerful lights

Bottom Line:   
Not a bad bit of kit. I reckon good value for money if you don't go jumping big. Certainly worth having a look at if you're in the market for a full susser.

Bike Setup:   Changed the tires too semis slicks from summer use and it flew. Put some maxxis larsen tt's on for the moment to give better grip in bad weather, they roll faster than the originals from Scott

Strengths:    Light, responsive. Very quick to accelerate. Hardly any bob especially compared to my old bike. Climbs!! DH fast to. Love it.

Weaknesses:    Transfers can be damaged easily. Carbon is not a hard material. Short frame life span? (But would not miss the fun I`d had so far!!) Put alot of Pace Carbon armour on the frame to protect from mud cable wear. The seat post seat clamp even though wound up so tight it could go BANG! still allows saddle movement if sat on harshly. They will replace, but not upgrade. My next purchase change.

Bottom Line:   
Have not regrets and rides like a dream compared to my last bike. Single pivot is great but has given me a few surprises bouncing me off the track, but that just could be me.

Date Reviewed: August 19, 2002

Strengths:    Very light weight. Active suspension aids cornering. Got to spin to stop suspension bounce then you can really notice the secenary moving.

Weaknesses:    Horrid creaking came from the rear suspension after some nasty wet muddy riding. Sorted by stripping /cleaning/lubing the shok pivots and suspension joint. It is an XC bike so dont DH or jump it too hard!!!!

Bottom Line:   
Want a decent racer or something for long trails? Get one, it is excellent. It is light so I can imagine it can be easily be broken. So dont DH or Jump.
Out of the box it is very competant but can be easily upgraded. I love this bike it is very responsive and grips very well on uphills flat and quite well on downy bits.

Date Reviewed: June 27, 2002

Strengths:    Good Suspension, lightweight, fast, stiff enough for me (67 kilos). This bike is driving like heaven, specially on single trails. Lockout? Why, when the suspension works even uphill.

Weaknesses:    Be aware of the lacquer of polished frames. Mine looked terrible after 2 years. As there's only 1 year of warrenty I was lucky to get a new one. So just buy a coloured frame even if silver looks great!

Bottom Line:   
Nice bike. I would buy it again, but not polished!!! Therefore not 5 chilies overall and 1 chilie for the laquer.

Strengths:    Lightish weight and a good solid feel with everything easy to use. Good brakes, they do the job even in the wet.

Weaknesses:    Awfully slow tires on tarmac. Only one bottle mount.

Bottom Line:   
A comfortable bike to ride. It swallows bumps and gives a lovelt ride over the rough stuff. Definitely more comforth than my carbon trek at the back. It seems to climb well with little bob, unless you stand out of the saddle. A nice bike and I reckon the risers bars make it nicer for longer rides. The suspension front and rea have come on a long way in past few years, a good thing!!!

Strengths:    Light, even when compared with many hardtails. Overall quality and performance. XC geometry and setup.

Weaknesses:    Price. I think bikes are overpriced (thats why 4 chilis in value).

Bottom Line:   
It climbs very well and it is confortable. Descending, although its riding position is not oriented for freeriding, shows a great improvement over my previous hardtails. Overall, I am very pleased with it and it seems it is really what I was looking for.
