Hi folks,
looking to purchase the Carbon 1, any detailed reviews or info/feedback on them yet as I have not seen much?

Many thanks

The RZ 140 is pretty new so there wont be tons of review but... It's pretty much the same bike as the Rize was (even the rear travel, it was more than 130 on the Rize) so you could search for Rize reviews which were pretty good. Here's one...

I have a rize with a 140 lefty on it. It's a TPC Lefty max from my Prophet

I love it. It's an Al version. It "rails" the turns way better than my prophet did. It's has a bit more of a nimble feel to it. It's not as good as a prophet for just pointing the bike downhill and letting off the brakes.

I general, a good bike. I would get one.....or two

Thanks for the info. Had read the Rize review and am torn between an '09 Rize Carbon 1 or the '10 RZ 140. I'm leaning towards the 140 with a couple of tweaks at the moment :)

i would stick with the 09... better kit (comes with hollowgrams?) whereas the 10 doesnt look as good. the RP23 is a much better rear shock IMO.
