Submitted by Traian Popescu a Weekend Warrior from Ontario

Date Reviewed: June 26, 2003

Strengths:    Light frame, great derailleurs, strong bike

Weaknesses:    Average brakes, poor shocks

Bottom Line:   
Easily the best bike I've ever owned or ridden (also the most expensive at about $800 CDN). The derailleurs (or however that's spelled) are incredible, better than much newer more expensive bikes, and I've punished them a lot. The shocks are very handy for rought roads when new, but become useless pretty soon, and the brakes also are mediocre. Still, it's a great bike that's taken a lot of abuse, and is ready for more.
