Strength:

Very stable at slow speeds, yet handles like its on rails at high speeds. Steel gives a beautiful ride and is fairly forgiving

Weakness:

Paint sucks and if you want to put tires bigger then 2.25 you may have some problems with clearance

Kick ass bike for all the trails you want to do. strong, resiliant and one hell of a great ride for all the types of riding whether your into fast singletrack or big drops, this bike is an affordable steel frame that takes a lickin and keeps on tickin.

Strength:

solid looks great great feel

Weakness:

paint job sucks alot of ass

The atomic full suspension is so great. I love it . It is a little over priced at $2400 (canadian), but I got it for 1500 because all the bikers out in Ontario don't know about the bike makers out west. One thing realy that pist me off about this bike was the s^&%Y pant job that I will have to get redone in a year or so.

Strength:

The lovely, well-designed steel frame

Weakness:

Easy-to-scratch paint

Love the bike. Spent months trying to find a new bike with a decent setup for a tall rider, the '98 Brodie Nucleus was the only one that came close. Brodie seem to be the only ones in my price range who realized that a bigger frame goes better with a longer head tube...the riding position was downright silly on some of the bikes I tried, my hands were so low.Great ride, it loves to be thrown into corners, the jury's still out on the Rock Shox but it's not too bad. Whining about the paint seems petty, but it really does scratch at the drop of a hat.Get a Brodie, you'll be happy.

big sexy   Cross-Country Rider [Mar 25, 1999]
Strength:

the steel ride is too sweet (all cliches apply here:e.g.forgiving ride,resilient ride,the right amount of flex without too much bb flexiness,forgiving etc..)

Weakness:

rust possible, but alleviated with rust inhibitors.

two words: brodie forever. I've had this bike for 10 years and it is still too sweet.

chris   Cross-Country Rider [Apr 15, 1999]
Strength:

Frame quality, weight and strength and the NW design. Control Tech fork work exceptionally well on cross-country eating bumps for breakfast.

Weakness:

brazed on cable routing noodle at the join of the top tube and seat tube. This noodle is not a good idea in these days of V-brakes. Routing is difficult to impossible, and needs to be bypassed. The same fork that makes the bike rock on X-country doesn' t cut it well down steep descents, wanting to dive forward too easily.

The bike is the best I've ridden for responsiveness, and strength. The frame is supple yet vicious.
