The Hollowpoint itself is solid. The frames are essentially the same across the line. Mine is an '03 Expert and I absolutely think it's the greatest thing since take-'n-bake pizza, and I'm not joking. I stumbled across this bike while looking for an active rear suspension that would climb as efficiently as my NRS yet give me the compliance the NRS lacks on small bumps and technical descents.Ouch! said:Does anyone have experience with this bike, or some of the components that come on the bike?
I came off an NRS2, which I purchased in an attempt to find something "more efficient" than my Fisher Joshua 'Y' bike. Despite the shining reviews of the dw-link's climbing prowess, I was concerned that I would be in for an adjustment period getting used to the 5" travel bike. Sitting on the bike the first time, feeling it sag over an inch and a half underneath me, I was sure I had made a mistake.pathfinder said:I am seriously considering buying a Giant NRS 2, but I just got a Supergo catalog and am now considering a Hollowpoint instead, partly because of the parts group, but is it chunky? The terrain around here is steep, so there's lots of climbing.
