    Strength:

    very well built bike, strong beafy frame, can handle big drops for a hardtail.A sweat paint job, and a very strong shock. Very strong rims, and disc's stop on a dime. Its just an other all stokin bike!!!!

    Weakness:

    The bikes only weaknesses are that the shocks are really loose, and you might want to purchase some stiffer springs.Another weakness is that it dosent come with a bash gaurd. That is all.

    If you are looking for a smooth ride, that can handle big drops, the brodie evolution is an amazing bike for its price.

    Similar Products Used:

    None...its just an amazing bike that can hold up to almost everything.

    Strength:

    - very nice paint/graphics
    - tough, beefy frame + excellent geometry
    - excellent stock components
    - very stable feel
    - smooooooth
    - can handle anything you throw at it
    - eats-up some pretty gnarly downhill

    Weakness:

    - At first, I found this bike a bit too heavy...not great for climbing...but not super-bad either. I would still buy it again...after I bought that full-suspension bike I've had my eye on....



    This is one *very* fun hardtail! Not a bike you would want to race on, but one you want to go out and play on!

    The weaknesses are minor considering the strengths of this bike. It eats-up *anything* you point it at. It feels very smooth and stable. It looks great. This bike inspires confidence.

    This bike doesn't have the "cheap feel" that many other bikes have. It's hard to describe it...feels like "quality". The "Kona-Stuff" came close, but just didn't have the class, components and beauty that this bike has. A quality product, well worth the $$$.

    Test-rode (my search for a new bike) - Kona, Trek, Marin, Rocky Mountain, Specialized and a couple of others...Brodie offered the best components and price.

    Strength:

    Awesome strong frame, amazing components for price. got it practicly brand new.

    Weakness:

    needs new front fork. purchased with manatue shocks that either need to be rebuilt or replaced. other than that, nothing. the largest sprocket could be replaced by bash gaurd.

    I'm compleatly satisfied with my purchase! i payed less than i was willing, and ended up with better parts. i would recomend this bike. rides smooth as smooth can be. great geometry good balance and shifts quite fast. i was surprised. good bike to buy!
