Great bike with great spec

Rating:
The Good:

A lot of good bullet proof components come stock

The Bad:

Brakes could be stronger, plus be sure to get the sizing right as it's a very large bike

Overall Review:

I've had this bike for a good few months and have been riding it every chance I get. I've upgraded the stem and pedals with Straitline components, and when I first bought the bike was told there was a recall on the wheelset so instead of the Jalco rims and hubs I've been riding Ringle Demon hubs and MTX33 rims. This bike is amazing. The control for such a long bike is awesome, and the balance is second to none. There have been several times I've nose cased a large jump or been a bit off center flying into a rock garden and still been able to ride away, when on another bike I would have been over the bars. All in all a great bike for the price. Read More »
