Strengths:    well so far the bike is pretty strong. only problem i had with it was the guy at the shop didn't tighten the bolts enough for the handle bars and so when i went over a curb they came loose and i flipped over the bars and broke the break handle but the guy was pretty nice and gave me a new break handle and put it on for free so that was cool
but other than that it has good breaks, tires, rims seat and bars


Weaknesses:    well i think for $240+ u should get steel pedals but other than that it has no weaknesses

Bottom Line:   
its a really good bike i like it my friends like it and i think u will like it

Date Reviewed: August 20, 2005

Strengths:    Near indestructible, looks better in person!

Weaknesses:    Weak drivetrain

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. It has a very solid feel to it. It is a heavy ride but I don't mind. Since changing out drive-train components it is vastly improved. I have a set of DK sealed hubs that I need to have laced to some Weinman rims. I need to get some new 990's and maybe some new bars. Came with a threadless headset so that stays. As much as I've dumped into this thing thus far I probably could have gotten a much higher end bike but this one is MINE. I got it at a good price so all the additions have been parts that I wanted.

Changing 2006 MX Pro for 2013 Recon Gold RL: worth it ?

Hi, I have the possibility of "upgrading" my 2006 Marzocchi MX pro fork to a 2013 Recon Gold RL really cheap. Both are 9mm QR, 120mm travel. The Recon is of course more recent, has got 32mm stanchions (MX Pro 30mm) and is about 250g lighter. I am very satisfied of the MX Pro, and wondered ... Read More »

Recon Silver problem

Something seems weird with my Recon. It feels like it doesn't support itself properly at the top of its travel which results in it sagging too far down in the travel. It was one day when i was setting PRs, I was hitting some rollies pretty hard and then I thought I heard a release of pressure th ... Read More »
