The guys over at MTB Trail Review have just finished with the Fury we sent them for test; they like it, a lot!

You can read more over on our blog, or go directly to MTB Trail Review (a great read!) or even browse on over to the review page.

Yep, that review was pretty honest and accurate.
The Fury is based on my San An Classic and I find what Sutton had to say was right on.
I'm puzzled by the 70 deg head angle comment though. I thought the new ones had been slackened slightly.
In fact I had measured my current setup on my San An at 68.5, while the Fury I rode at the Outdoor Demo seemed just a tad slacker.
In any case, the shorter wheelbase keeps them nimble, even with a slightly slacker angle.
The only place I miss having a linkage bike with a pivot near the bottom bracket, is when I'm climbing an extended choppy climb. Other than that, I love my single pivot for all the reasons given by "Krien?".
There are indeed a lot of bikes with an exposed shock.
Other than the "bottle cage bosses" I wish that other seat tube obstructions were mentioned in the response. IE bent seat tubes, pivots, etc.

Also: Someone needs to proof their emails when responding professionally. :D
I have the time to do that, and am pretty good at it, so if you MC guys ever want a response or an ad read before it's sent in, let me know.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
