Strength:

frame and suspention are amazing and have saved my a*s tons of times on jumps.

Weakness:

Side handelbars are semi-weak and will break if landing from a jump multiple times holding them. otherwise nothing to complain about!

Awsome bike to have. I've had mine for the last 5 years and only three flaws!!! (not that serious)

Strength:

excellent parts package,xtr,fox shox, boxxer.short wheel base for descent feed back.awesome flexibility for rear linkage setup.never do endos agian, front wheel stays in front because of head angle

Weakness:

not designed for anything but dh.chain guide is horrible.mine got sheared, took it off. get yourself a real chain guide

once the front derailer was set up my downhill depression was gone and tight rock combos were easily tackled.so much bottom bracket clearnce and a chain gaurd. l have yet to find a log or rock that l can not clear.32 pounds have never seemed so light.short wheelbase allows for a sugar like climb.the canadian distributer wanted out and my dealer picked up the bikes cheap. $3700 cdn. thats less than u.s. funds.at that price l could not resist the front derailer custom job.l'm sure a better bike exists ,but the flexibilty of a front derailer allows this vehicle to conquer all terrian,dh or xc with travel l will never use.

Strength:

Unbelieveble bike. A perfect chioce. You can try any dh trail with this bike. Rock solid. A little bit upgrade and you can even race in professional events.

Weakness:

Well, I can't find anything to say. You can find cheaper bikes but...

The pro's choice.

Downhill Kidd   Downhiller [Feb 28, 2001]
Strength:

Awesome ride. Not heavy for a downhill bike. Awesome parts, DEEMAX rims are crazy. Fork is great. I love it!

Weakness:

Chain Guide is the worst piece of shtick ever. I broke off the bottom part, i`ll have a Gizmo soon. Seat post is wierd, dont like it. the linkage hits the seat tube when i bottom out. Other than that nothing else is bad.
Oh and I get funny looks because im 16!!

I love this bike so much. It is a great Dh bike. I drop 10 foot gaps onto flat pavement landing and it doesn`t hurt much. It was a great buy too, because it was new but an older model. I really like it.

Ritchie   Downhiller [Apr 02, 2000]
Strength:

Great frame construction and rear linkage setup. Not TOO heavy. Great for bombing through rocks through to taking sharp corners at speed due to suspention setup.

Weakness:

The price. Got mine on sale though. If you want 3 chain rings on the front, you cant.

Great frame. Good for custom setups. Excellent for serious downhilling and cornering and not bad for flatland pedaling. Will review again after 6 months.
