Strengths:    Value in this bikes frame alone. Same meat n' potatoes as the Crown (big head set), less a few component upgrades which you can make for yourself later at your own discression, and, it's a bit lighter. Great for the bigger rider.

Weaknesses:    Although not REALLY a weakness, I would have liked a sealed crank to have come stock, but ehh....wutever. The stock FA brake could be a bit tighter, but again, an easy $45.00 upgrade. My main(and only real)complaint was the missing side mounts on the fork. The center pivot should not have been allowed on a bike of this calibre. The cheap alternative to a pricey fork replacement though, get yourself some clamp-on brackets for that better break response.

Bottom Line:   
You just can't go wrong with this bike. It's a phat ride for the money and a great frame to add to if you so choose. No pansy pastel colours here either, just a simple variation of a black/red/white color scheme. It's a solid choice for the intermediate-to-advanced rider looking to upgrade. Bottom line, I've named mine already...

Just what the title says. Smells like a mega-hopped IPA, tastes like… well, I’m not sure yet. Pretty strong stuff. Not at all pale in colour as the “India Pale Ale” designation would lead one to believe, looks like a porter or a srout. [IMG] ... Read More »

Fatbiking the Imperial Sand Dunes?

I'm trying to get some input on fatbiking the Imperial Sand Dunes around Glamis and Gordon's Well. Anyone know what the sand conditions are like? Tips? I know it's a steep climb/hike-a-bike from Gordon's Well to the interior of the dunes, and Glamis looked soft from the road when I pedaled by it on ... Read More »

Firestone Walker Imperial Stout

Hey, I just happened to be at Total Wine last night with my buddy who just turned 21 and wanted to see that place for all of its glory! I walked over the the specialty release section and one of the tags caught my eye. I wanted to get last years Parabola, but nobody in my city had it. This year we ... Read More »
