Strengths:    
Light-weight frame
Geometry
Cool Factor


Weaknesses:    
Fat welds (who cares?)
Decals need replacing often


Bottom Line:   
Ideal bike for east coast singletrack. Great for climbing, log-hopping. Everyone asks What's a Spooky? 3 years of hard riding by 190 lb. guy, no signs of stress (on the bike at least!)

Submitted by Keith deLeeuw a Cross-Country Rider from Grapevine, TX

Date Reviewed: September 25, 1999

Strengths:    
Lightweight Easton Elite frame (3 lbs)
Excellent climber


Weaknesses:    
None


Bottom Line:   
Frame geometry is excellent for technical singletrack. The long top tube and short chainstay make it an excellent climber. The high bottom bracket clearance pretty much eliminates grinding the chainring over logs or rocks. Worth the high cost.

Went to the darkside.. EMD 29er build made from a ladies GTw!

The build all started with an impluse buy. Impulse, meaning a 1 week obsession with the idea of NEEDING a 29er. The frame went on sale on Jenson and boom.
