FRM 10HP XC Full Suspension

The 10HP suspension has been designed to enhance the pedal efficiency, slightly compromising the total efficiency of the suspension. This short travel suspension is designed for X-country racers who need light-weight, lightning-fast accellerating machines, with the lateral rigidity and the nimble handling of hardtails, but bob-free when pedalling and with better impact absorbtion of their rigid counterparts.

Strength:

light - reactive

Weakness:

not so reliable and components fine tuning pretty difficult

I have been using my Be Active for 15 years.... bought it in 1995.... used it for many kms... loads of fun. I had loads of problems in setting up the rear derailleur as the suspension movement was inducing some gear changes... and after 15 years (and 20 more kgs) I broke the frame right behind the steering. most likely caused by fatigue and change of mechanic characteristics of aluminum. I would say that can be expected and is not to be addressed negatively to a product that gave the the time of my life.

Au contraire, I have to say GRAZIE FRANCO FOR HAVING DESIGNED A WONDERFUL BIKE.
