Strengths:    Design It looks great and rides better

Weaknesses:    They dont make it anymore

Bottom Line:   
This bike rocks it can climb like a goat and it goes down hill like a rocket. I am impressed with the strength im not a small guy at six two two twenty this bike takes everything i can dish out weather its stair gaps dirt jumps or my p.r. at seven feet to flat. This bike was made for a beating and it loves to take it i would recomend it to anyone who wants a great bike to huck.

Strengths:    burly
sweet geometry for jumping
badass looking
good standover clearance
KHS are good folk to deal with


Weaknesses:    no real weaknesses...if you like to XC it lives up to it's name, but it's not an XC bike(obviously). cracked mine, but i seem to be a bit tougher on my gear than most. der.hanger is flimsy and loves to break. The paint chips easily, but you really shouldn't be concerned with a perfect finish if you're riding something that was made to be thrashed. Oh yeah, and they stopped making it.

Bottom Line:   
sweet bike for the big air idiot

KHS' customer service is always a plus, too

Date Reviewed: January 30, 2003

Strengths:    Geometry is nuts on and makes for effortless gappies. I'm 5'11" and loving the slack angle stance for aggresive blasts of dual slalom and dirt jumping bliss.

Weaknesses:    shifters ofcourse, I hope to replace these first

Bottom Line:   
When I purchased my bike it had to be ordered by the bike shop and I was told there is now 1 left in the So. California KHS headquarters waiting for a home as of late Dec. Its a sweet bike especially at that 800 pricetag. It is undecided whether it will still be offered as a frame-only for 2003.Too bad this bike is possibly going to be out of production, it's such a great bike.

Bottom Line:   
this is a pimp bike it is really stiff and loves the jumps i almoast didnt buy it becasue of the rim brakes and the POOPY GRIP SHIFTERS when i heard that it had those i freaked and peed my pants i was laughing so hard. i mean my moms bike has grip shifters well it did untll i broke them dumb things. so PALEZZZ get better shifters unless you are just some kid that cant ride and is buying a Cool looking bike to impress you friends and the girls. dont buy this bike if you are going to ride it from one person to the next just to trade pokemon cards
