    Strength:

    Awesome 650B wheels

    Weakness:

    Designed with geo more towards 29ers than 26"

    650B wheels have a lot of potential .. roll fast and are small enough to be thrown around./bunny hopped etc. with much more ease than 29ers. The beasley is a great bike to get people riding 650B but it needs to be treated to a shorter fork and lighter kit to really impress and get the most outta the wheels

    Strength:

    Mechanically simple. Surprisingly nice components. This is one good looking bike, the catalog pictures do it no justice.
    The steel/chrome molly frame soaks up the vibrations.

    Weakness:

    None, it is what it is, which is why I bought it.

    This bike is freaking fun. I forgot how fun a rigid frame could be. The 650B tires are good to go, I think they are worth the hype. Worth it for those who want a no B.S, mechanically sound rigid frame bike. You will have to dust off some of those old skills because there is no front fork or rear shock to rescue you from stupidity. Nothing but pure steel sweetness!

    Similar Products Used: None. Currently also ride an 07 Specialized Enduro with the works. Opposite end of the spectrum so to speak.
