I'd just like to add the my DHi was the best pedaling bike I've ever ridden. Absolutely no pedal feeback over rough terrain. Imagine hammering through a nasty rock garden and you don't feel any of it in the pedals.:thumbsup:

sounds good
But some guy on a swedish forum commented on the fact that the bikes geometry places the biker too much "behind" the cranks, anyone got comments on that?

unfortunately it's kitted with manitou, so i gotta skip this one after readin tooooooo many bad reviews on those
found some giant reigns and faith's too, and they are also kitted with manitou or bad gears

Not sure although mine never seemed to bother me. Might be a personal preference. In either case, the I-Beam seat has a huge range of fore/aft adjustment.

i drive

The GT DHi frame pedals very well, no bob at all. It is essential to have a stable coil rear shock e.g. 5th or dhx or rocco. The i drive really does work- a great idea. Now the bad bit and it is quite a flaw, the front triangle is super strong, However the rear triangle is fragile, mine cracked on light freeride. Got a replacement on warranty. Now I will only use this frame as an all mountain bike. Its biggest downfall is maintenance. I used to love bike maintenance. This thing takes over your life and wallet to maintain, the FS parts are expensive and made of cheese and need replacing toooooo often. It is undoubtedly the best pedaling bike out there, its a great shame you have to choose between your wife or i drive, cos after all there is only so much attention a man can give.
