Strengths:    - Frame strength; Steal (fully sick maaate)
- Geometry
- Looks sweet

Weaknesses:    Paint could be a little better quality

Bottom Line:   
This is one seriously good product folks:

The geometry is absolutely spot on; you can use it for a trailbike or a dirt jumper (Some say its a good street bike too but the geometry isnt quite there i reckon). The bike is really comfortable in the air, and its very manouverable having very short chainstay's.

The frame material is (steal) chromoly; steal has much more flex than aluminium and when leaving a jump you can spring it into the air. Its also smooth over the rough sh$t. But its also a seriously strong frame too.

And also, the bike looks sweet; nice graphics and stuff.

Overall, buy wont be dissapointed. Pitty about the paint, not that i really care though..

Date Reviewed: October 8, 2003

Strengths:    light and easy to control, good in the air and tricks, easy to hop and the grab pad under the seat is useful too

Weaknesses:    paint chipped, forks scratched and the wheels are a bit bent(but that's to be expected)

Bottom Line:   
this bike of mine is great for downhill, jumps and stunts, it is a jump bike though but has been used on high-stress trails and all day mountain tracks, good for street and off-road and handles well on hardpack dirt.

Schwalbe Hans Dampf - Trailstar or Pacestar?

trailstar - softer and grippier pacestar - harder, better rolling I have the pacestar on my 29er, no complaints at all, handles the chunk in the McDowells well. These will go on my all-mountain bike for more Somo. Will the grip of the trailstar outweigh the durability?Read More »

anyone had a chance to try both HD trailstar and Minion DHF 3c back to back

probably the 2 biggest and burliest full AM tires on the market. one is heavy, the other extremely so. real world opinions on a comparison of both is appreciated.Read More »

Diff btwn Nob Nic 26 x 2.35 and 2.4? So close in size? Also Trailstar vs Pacestar?

Looking at larger tires to run on my 26" MTB either for the purpose of just trying larger tires than my 2.1's...or, so I can put a larger than 2.1 on the rear if I put a 650B 2.25 on the front. Either way, I am looking at larger tires than 2.1 and I notice that Racing Ralph don't come in larger than ... Read More »
