    Strength:

    Bombproof, DW Link is badass, price, everything else

    Weakness:

    Short top tube, steep head tube angle

    It's a good bike until you put on a coil shock and slacken the head tube angle. After that it's simply wonderful in every way imaginable except weight. The suspension is so good that you don't really notice the weight until you actually put it on a scale.

    Strength:

    Extrordinary blend of pedal efficiency and full on downhill capability with the dw link and stiff 150mm rear. Ability to run a 2.75 stroke shock for 174mm rear travel - awesome. works well with hammershchmidt for agressive all mountain rig.

    Weakness:

    A little steep headtube with stock shock (fixed by changing out rear or going to a longer fork, angleset also available now). Shorter cockpit may push you to the next size up depending on preference.

    Best big all mountain rig I've rode so far. Rides great on earn-your-turn climbs, maybe even epic xc, but I also spent a day at Whistler with this baby and she's a lot of fun to whip around. Pick one up used if you can since Ironhorse when belly up. Tip: I'd like to give this a try with a fox talas 180.

    Gman086   Downhiller [Jun 14, 2011]
    Strength:

    Bombproof rear triangle and overall stiffness, DW link pedals like a hardtail but is more supple than other suspensions when pointed down. Inexpensive for this much performance!

    Weakness:

    Slightly heavy for an AM bike but I use it for FR so...
    30.0 seatube is useless for adjustable posts.
    HTA could be slacker.

    Sickest AM bike ever built (once you slacken the HTA). Makes the Nomad look like a child's toy! Low BB height and massive rear (12mm thru x 150 hub) makes this track like a DH bike but has the climbing ability of a trail bike. Truly one bike to rule them ALL!

    Strength:

    Spec for the money , Its well made and can take some punishment , Good traction .

    Weakness:

    not a weakness but I changed to a 50 mm stem as I could only get a 19 inch frame and this had made it about right for me at 5.9 in height .

    I would say that for the money its a bargain at less than half price at Rutland , Only 1 or 2 left and I had to get a 19 inch frame but I have found it fine to ride , I had to call Mojo to help me set up the rear shock as the Fox 3.5 Air has pro peddle and I needed an idea of what air to put in as it was almost empty on the seperate rebound chamber .

    Strength:

    value this is one of the most fun bikes to ride for the money

    Weakness:

    the fox dhx 3 blew the air seal and clasped the air chamber then the valving went and the stem broke but i am all so riding this bike extremely hard with lost of drops

    it will make you smile and it rides like a baby sunday i have raced it in the curser class on a bmx track taken it to a skate park and some super technical down hill and it handled it all very competently for a 6 inch bike you can slam the seat and ride it like a dirt jump bike then put the seat back up and rid up hill all day. if you are going to have just one bike get one.

    Strength:

    You can not beat this bike for the price. They say it weighs 37 pounds but I am coming from an Rocky Mountain Slayer 05 and this bike feels the same weight. It climbs like a beast, the back wheel is like glue on the ground.

    Weakness:

    The Avid Juicy 3's are weak and I will be switching them but everything else seems to work great

    If you need to climb but love the downhill this is a great bike. This bike will climb and do the downhills and does not feel near as heavy as it says. Get it!

    Strength:

    No complaints really. Everything from the bike feeling super solid, good uphill climbing and good downhill capabilities, durable components, it's all there. It's perfect weight so u don't get bobble on the back end on downhill trails like u would with lighter bikes. All around i've been super happy with it and haven't had any problems at all (i've been riding alot since i've gotten it too.)

    Weakness:

    Maybe an upgraded fork if u wanted, but that's always the case it seems like.

    I'll i can say is that it has taken a beating thus far and still works like a champ. aside from a basic tune here and there, ya know. I don't think u will be disappointed in what u get with it, especially for the price and it does what it's supposed to do just great..aggressive all-mountain riding. The bike gives u the options of course to upgrade it more so which adds to its appeal. I've heard people complain about the weight being whatever it is, like 37 lbs or somethin, if ur not a complete puss then it's not an issue at all.

    Similar Products Used: None. Been happy with Iron Horse Bikes and gonna stick with em.

    Strength:

    Great plush ride,climbs well. Good components,takes a the rugged stuff sweet.

    Weakness:

    Crank cames loose after 2 rides, took it back to dealer & they sorted it straight away, no hassle. Rear hub jammed a bit, once again sorted immediatly. No problems since.

    I really love this bike. It's great to ride, easier than my Kona to pedal. DW link is sweet. Other than a few teething problems it runs really well.

    Strength:

    Great DW link rear suspension. Point and go. The Hayes Brakes will stop you as needed.

    Weakness:

    Stock FSA crank bent on first rock. Heavier for long up hills. Timberwolf 2.5s very aggressive for any XC

    Great bike to get on and go. Heavier than other bikes but....holds up to punishment. Easy to work on. Its too bad IH has abandoned the LBS. My next bike likely to be Yeti ASR-7, 575 or Trek Session 88 FR or Remedy 9.

    afrmonteiro   Weekend Warrior [Jul 29, 2008]
    Strength:

    The bike is absolutely sick! The dw-link ensures that climbing is cool. The frame geometry is very accurate to flat riding. Descending is completely insane! The bike is way better than the rider atm!

    Weakness:

    None till now

    I'm definitely surprised with the bike performance. I'm pretty sure I could use it to DH racing! Anyway, it is an all-around bike very stable and precise. I would recommend it to everyone!
