Foes DHS Tube frame 2003 Full Suspension

5/5 (3 Reviews)
MSRP : $2499.00


Product Description

Reminiscent of the original Foes 'DH Slammer', the DHS-Tube now gets a floating brake kit and custom made 12 mm T/A rear hub for 2003! The breakthrough 2003 frame shares the same race-winning geometry & handling of its big brother, the DHS-Mono. A huge four bearing main pivot ensures no rear-end flex or play, especially compared to multi-pivot designs. The floating brake mount ensures neutral braking, and an intelligently placed pivot point allows excellent pedal characteristics. Available with the optional Curnutt XTD shock, the DHS-Tube is armed & ready to bring you to the podium!

Strengths:    super tough bike, feels so solid. i can just grab my bike and go, and not worry about tightening bolts or making sure all is well. i know it is. great bike for more than dh. looks better than the mono design.

Weaknesses:    heavier than i prefer, and sometimes the rear triangle gets in my way.

Bottom Line:   
killer bike, i roadtripped from utah, to Kamloops to whistler to vancouver, and this bike excelled in all conditions. put a smaller ring on the fron and the ladders are no problem. urban riding is a lot of fun, perhaps a bit heavy and overkill, depending on how big you go. the rear progression is sweet with the curnutt,( ive got a new romic but don't want to try it) the bike tears through everything. i've heard of one individual breaking the steer tube twice, but i don't know how severe. my bike is still super tough. the craftsmanship at foes is superb, i am thoroughly impressed. and recommend a foes to anybody who is wants top quality in a bike. but they are PRICEY.
