Strengths:    beautiful frame, very responsive, intelligent design features

Weaknesses:    by today's standards, this older frame had limited fork options and is a bit heavier than the latest wunderbikes. This frame didn't originally have a disc brake option (now it does). Not cheap.

Bottom Line:   
On the local trails, i loved the handling on flatter terrain but soon used up all the suspension travel i had. Downhill was twitchy, as any hardtail XC would be. All in all, a superb machine for its designed purpose.

Favorite Trail:   depends on the day

Duration Product Used:   Tested or demo'ed only

Similar Products Used:   Trek, Klein, Ellsworth, Ventana, Fisher, Scott, Santa Cruz

Bike Setup:   The ProAxe i tested was a "vintage" bike of a friend. It came standard with full XTR components (and therefore i don't understand Sam's prior comments). The V-brakes still work just fine as long as you're not riding in the wet.

Strengths:    It is very light and very strong. Its frame holds up in extremely rough trails. I've raced once and place 2nd of 45.

Weaknesses:    It has bad braking systems, as well as derailers. I replaced the brakes and derailers. And now its working perfectly.

Bottom Line:   
I wouldnt but another one. Insted i'd try to jus get a frame. Its a great bike but it has crappy bells and whistles. If your a pro-mtn biker i woulnt suggest it.
