Fillmoe Slim said:I've got an 05 cowan (the good color). Some of the good points are the geometry, rotor tabs if your into barspin tricks, and of course the option to run single speed. Even if you don't run SS you can still change the wheelbase by sliding the dropouts back and forth. The frame is made well and can take the abuse of DJ or freeriding. I've used mine for quite a bit of DH also including Northstar and Downeiville and it held it's own even though it's not necesarilly in it's element. Me and my buddy swapped one day while riding a DH trail, he's got a stinky, and after the ride he had a big grin on his face and commented that it just feels good.
