Strength:

Bulls Wild Cup 2. Very good geometry, extremely forgiving suspension. Comfortable at high speed and down hill. Climbs great. Excellent brakes TRP Slate. Good mix of high end and mid grade components. 500+ miles so far, a lot of DH and single-track. Smoking good price at 900 bucks on sale!

Weakness:

I don't like the remote lock out on the front fork. The internal routing of the cables and brake lines end up getting chafed at the inlet and outlet, also rubs on the BB housing leaving grooves. Had to wrap it in Teflon tape and coil wrap to keep it from cutting through, fortunately I found it pretty quickly.

Strength:

Quality of components. Geometry. Value. Put $200 in upgrades to bring it a little closer to modern bikes. Upgraded drive train to 1x11 ($90), installed new and wider handlebar (race face Chester $40) and a shorter stem (sram $50). Also got new grips (ESI extra chunky) and pedals (race face Chester). And then of course got rid of tubes. After the upgrades the bike rides and looks much better. So in total the bike cost me a tad over $2000. Not bad, but I should have probably bought a Giant Stance for about the same price and save the time upgrading the Bulls Wild Cup 3.

Weakness:

Ugly welds. Bought in 2017 but feels and looks like a 2012 or older bike.

Own a 2017 Wild Cup 2. Bike is totally different than the pic, and specs are different than listed. XT/SLX, Rockshox Sector front /Monarch RL rear, Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires. For $1400 plus no shipping or tax, you can't find a comparable spec bike for more than double from a LBS. Have over 400 miles on this bike so far, and no issues at all. only upgrade has been WTB volt seat, and Race Face Chester pedals. Plus removing the front lockout lever and making it a 1 x 11 using a Oneup chainring.

Price, components, tires

Weakness:

Rear shock, rear triangle, headset rims customer service

Purchases the Wildcup 2 for $1400. For the shocks and components it was hard to pass up. Not to mention a lifetime warranty on the frame. First 50-75 miles were great. Just put a 25 miles day at Kingdom trails and tons of issues. Rear spokes loose constantly, rear shock leaking, headset junk, front shock lockout broken. I emailed customer service 5 days ago twice and no response. Look you get what you pay for. Be warned.

Weakness:

Wheels, Rear shock

I ordered a BULLS Wild Cup 1 and it arrived in a few days. Box was damaged in shipping but the bike was just fine. After about 10 min of assembly I was riding my new bike. The fork and shock sag was was not perfectly set but it wasn't too far off. Drivetrain did not need any adjustments. The rear shock is not very supple but helps absorb bumps and drops. Fork does quite well for being at the bottom of the air fork category. I bent the front wheel after I overshot a tabletop after only owning it for 5 months. The frame is stout but not super heavy. I've had no problems with frame and construction of the bike. After a few upgrades this bike will be awesome, but for the price there aren't many other bikes out there that perform as well. I am very happy with my purchase. The customer service is great at answering any questions you may have

Strength:

Price. Reliability. Robustness.

Weakness:

Rear shock. Saddle. Wheels.

Found a very good deal for this bike and decided to give it a go even though there was barely any information on it from the US. Shipped fast and well packaged. Easy to assemble. Great first ride. The rear shock isn't the best and it's pretty stiff in its initial travel. I replaced it with a monarch and it's much better. The Sr suntour fork performs very well and was pleasantly surprised. The wheels are pretty heavy and found they go out of true here and there, nothing major and expected. The brakes are OK and do the job. Same with drivetrain. The frame is solid and very well built. After the first few rides I noticed a bolt on rear linkage fell of. Contacted Bulls and they sent me another right away so great customer service. After that I torqued down all the bolts. Overall for the price and quality this is a great bike backed with a great customer service. I have a wild cup 1 by the way.
