Submitted by Icehawk a Weekend Warrior from Miami, FL

Date Reviewed: April 18, 2010

Strengths:    Proven race bike, pretty good specs stock, excellent frame, great price.

Weaknesses:    Very long bike means it isn't great for jumping if you are smaller, fairly harsh stock bars. A couple crappy stock items on the spec list and two parts with US allen bolts. A bit heavier than expected.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great race bike with a stiff frame and quick geometry. The stock wheels are very strong. The original brakes were pretty lame so I swapped in XT's and a much nicer lever when I built this. I also had to go with the, then, de rigeur Profile 3pc crankset & Atomic pedals. I do wish it had front brake bosses but that is because I used it as an all-around play bike and the Legend was not the right DK model for that.
