Overall Rating:4
Submitted by Jon David Forrester a Cross-Country Rider from Duluth, GA

Date Reviewed: May 12, 1999

Strengths:    
Inexpensive, great geomentry, light, good welds


Weaknesses:    
Hard to find, Grade 4 Ti not the latest thing


Bottom Line:   
The Sampson Vail is a solid Ti hardtail. Light, and fairly inexpensive. It has been a solid machine for my 200lbs. Great geomentry, not quirky, very stable. Have had no trouble with Grade 4 Ti. A very solid bike, especially for the money.
