Strength:

Handbuilt and rare, not the usual mass produced factory built stuff

Weakness:

A little heavy if that is a weakness, its not a bike for competitive climbing is it?

This really is a great little bike, made even better by yhe fact that almost nobody knows what it is. It may be old as far as bikes go but it hasn't dated and still compares to many of the latest 6" bikes on the market. The linkage suspension really does do away with brake jack and has no pedal feedback at all, the rear suspension just works. I have a lockou shock and forks so it makes climbing bareable and has been proven on Glentress Black many times.

Easy to service and unique, i dont think i could bring myself to part with it. If you want the latest fashion trend then you wont be looking at this but if you want a good sturdy steed that is amazing on the downhills, grab one
