Foes DHS Mono frame 2003 Full Suspension

Available At:
DHS Mono frame

The Champions' Choice is still the leader in the world of downhill racing! The DHS-Mono's heritage includes four National Championship titles in a row, and a World Junior DH Champion. The fully triangulated single pivot swing-arm combined with the floating disc brake mount provides the stiffness of the best monopivot designs with the fully neutral braking advantages of "four-bar" and other multi-pivot designs. A custom made, 12 mm T/A hub with wider axle spacing is now standard equipment allowing perfect chainline and a dish-less rear wheel. The frame is designed specifically to mate with the Curnutt XTD shock, the basis for all current "position sensitive" dampers. Why not ride the original and best? The DHS-Mono is the natural choice.

Strength:

The suspension seems endless.Curnutt shock kicks a$$!Solid handling seems to just jump out of the corners even though its kimd of heavy.This bike is the bike you want if you want to win races!GET IT!

Weakness:

Decals seem cheap and weight and the price.But I'm just kind of nit picking here really this bike has no weaknesses!

This is the best bike that you could ever get!I'm getting my frame ready to be built up but the demo ride that I took was just fenominal!I think if your a DH racer like I am and are looking for a good race bike this is it,this bike WILL get you to the podium in a hurry!

Weakness:

to dam expensive cant afford another one, friends get jealous...

this bike will ride through a battle field and come bak in one piece. i have 2 builds. my burly build for attacking streets and trails which is with the shivers and 24in double wides, lovely. then theres the stealthE build for fast dh tomfoolery my dorado,s and my 26in mavic. super fast can whip my mates on their hard tails on the sprint down the track and the home run down the mountain.this is an expensive bike but wen u have rode it a couple of times and at ur local trails it hits u how much this bike kiks rse.the curnutt shock is lovely width of a cokecan,makes other shoks look small. buy one do it do it do it,

Hunter   Downhiller [Feb 20, 2003]
Strength:

Monocaque design
single pivot
strength in the rear end
the travel
floating break
romic t2
all the gussets incorporated into the frame
almost zero pedal bob

Weakness:

The only weakness is the cost, and no manual with the frame( download it off there website)

This bike rocks! i have only had mine for two weeks but i love it. The bike is bottomless with nine in the rear. The frame is so strong and beefy i don't think it will ever break. The design is number 1 and with the romic, there is only a minor amount of pedal bob. This bike corners like it is on rails and is so plush and progressive feeling.This bike cornered better than any other bike i have ridden. I have a total of four hours of good hard riding and my confidence is ten times greater. I have only dropped upto seven feet with it so far, but i didn't even feel a single thing. This bike also has no break jack with that floating break so it is a lot better than four bar design. i rode a v10 for a whole day but it doesn't feel half as nice because the v10 is only downhill. this thing is a good trail bike, freeride bike, huck bike, downhill bike, and big air. It is the most balanced feeling bike in the air i have ever ridden. I can't say enough about this frame and design. The romic and dorado are super matched in feel to one another. I recommend this to anybody who is thinking about an M1 or v10 or any seriuos big bike. This thing is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT IN EVERYWAY!!!!!

Anthony   Downhiller [May 03, 2004]
Strength:

Fastest bike ever ridden.... minimal flex, very balanced in the air, makes you want to go bigger n bigger and faster n faster ..this is an MX bike without the engine, but still gets up to speed very quickly, you don't feel the weight . If you run on 2.3's still feels nimble enuf to tweak / style it on corners or through technical sections.

Weakness:

Noisy / creaky ..
Attracts too much attention. Folks presume you are pro or just some wanna be yuppie DHer ..!

Solid, no bullsh*t bike... Will take you faster than you wanna go, whether racing a norba /World cup or keepin it low n fast down A line/ Dirt merchant ..this frame will eat it up with ease and have you riding on a whole new level , railing corners n clearing sections like never before ...

If you can re-morgage your house or sell your car ....get one ...
