Anyone use one? Opinions?
Still have my 06 and love it!mjdthunder said:Had one (05 or 06 model) for a couple of years...loved it for free ride and all around riding. Sold it for a few reasons:
1. high center of gravity
2. No chain guide tabs
3. High bottom bracket
4. 67 degree head angle...I like my stuff more slack.
15"......After you set 50% sag for dh'n it'z gonna be far from 15".....8.5" travel w/ 4.25" sag = very low bb height.mjdthunder said:Good bike for all mountain / free riding / big drops / climbing when you have to...but not great for DH racing in my opinion. Oh I forgot to mention...the bearings on this model VPP tend to Squeal like a stuck pig after some use and then you have to buy a new bearing kit from Santa Cruz. I would love to see some actual company lit. for angles bottom bracket etc. Good center of gravity..hardly. Bottom bracket is close to 15 inches easy. Chain guide tabs...I would not get a bike w/out them, period.
