Simple and great

Rating:

The Good: Price, easy set up, reliability, weight, easy to do your own service

The Bad: You can lose rebound knob.

Overall: Awesome fork for good money (if you look at other fork prices...) and easy settings. It will ride great if you do at least 1 oil changing per season (depends on how much you ride, of course). It has two very basic settings - compression and rebound and you honestly don't need anything else except racing on WC level and even there, some guys race RC forks. You can lose rebound knob if you hit some rocks or fall.. Just setup the fork and remove the knob, you don't need it there all the time once the fork is set-up.

Awesome bike, good price

Rating:

The Good: This bike is great. It has exactly the same geometry as 10 or 20 Gambler model but with lower priced components and of course for a better price. Great handling, fast and HOT looking! This frame will go through two seasons of racing easily. Once you change few components on the bike you have nothing to worry about. Otherwise, everything is good, wheels are strong, stock 'syncross' components are looking great and very strong. Pedaling is surprisingly good.

The Bad: The Gambler 30 has some components that have to be changed from the beginning in my opinion. Brakes are critical for every downhill rider and those Elixir 1 are not helping. Also, the chainguide is very weak and you WILL break it. And maybe the next bad point could be the weight of the bike, which is around 39.6 lbs (18.0 KG). I don't mind that, it still handles great and it's better that it is a bit heavier but strong and confident at any track.

Overall:

I've had this bike for this season now. Few of my friends have last year model and are still running this year. It is a great bike, i would recommend it to anyone - racer or bike park shredder. The rear of the bike is soft from the beginning but it really feels like you have endless rear travel. Everything is so dialed on this bike, Scott did a great job with the new geometry. If it's stock chainguide and brakes would be better, this would be 5 stars. I give it 4.5 just because of that.

After having few downhill bikes from different brands.. I have finally found what I need.. A fast bike that will hold me for more than one season with no problem or special maintenance.
