Watch out for downhill/technical thrills, smiles pasted on your face. I ride mine HARD, normally on very rough, rocky technical terrain. Drops, ledges, lifts, etc. I broke an NRS frame and an '02 AC-1 frame (size small broke at seat tube junction with the top tube, there was no gusset on the small '02's and earlier).honkinunit said:I can get a killer deal on an '03 AC1. I rode it, and it was pretty darn rideable for a long travel bike.
Is there anything to watch for on these bikes? Linkage bearings? Common cracks? Fork blowout?
