bikes are not more expensive, they are just better. more expensive means that the same thing (i.e. $500 then) requires more money now (i.e. $1000 today). that is not the case. bikes are so radically better now they are not comparable to what was here ... more »

^^^ aside from modern X9/SLX being less expensive than m950 was a decade ago, its also about 1000x better performing.

Morewood Makulu

Rating:

The Good: This bike is incredible. fast, stable, reactive, smooth, pedals well.

The Bad: sticker decals are sorta weak on a $3k frame

Overall: I have ridden a lot of downhill bikes as a manager of a high end mountain bike shop, from all the big players (trek, specialized, commencal, yeti etc). the makulu is legitimately the cream of the crop. It corners perfectly, pedals like a 6" trail bike, is totally smooth in the heavy chop yet super reactive when you need it. truly an incredible bike. it does everything as well as you could ever guess. so so much fun. folks always want the "latest and greatest" suspension designs, headtube angles, etc, and while the makulu does not re-invent the wheel with ultra progressive designs, its perforamance and all around high ride quality marginalize all of this. a 14.25" BB and 65deg head angle work. and if you want to change that, then drop an angleset in there. linkage driven single pivots that are this well designed simply work. i would strongly suggest optting for the nicer shock. while the fox is totally fine, a custom valved shock like a cane creek or avalanche really maximize this bike's potential. long story short this is without question the best riding, most dialer DH frame on the market, bar none. it is a pleasure to ride that will simply make DH riding more fun. simple as that.
