    “2013 Yuma review”

    The Good: I have been riding this bike for about a month now and it has fit the bill for what I was after. I gave up on my full suspension for a quicker and lighter aluminum frame bike. Bone stock w/o pedals the bike was a little over 26 Lbs. (large frame). The components spec'd on the bike are great for the price point, and the bike handles very good. At 200 lbs. I opted for aluminum over carbon due to my weight for durability. The ride is good and the bike climbs wonderfully. I have only needed small amounts of weight transfer toward the front of the bike except for the steepest climbs. This will be my race bike for the season because I'm not loaded with extra cash, but I'm confident this bike will perform great. The color is not your run of the mill, it's like a flat copper shade, I like it because it is unique. Two water bottle cage mounts are also an improvement over the 2012 version.

    The Bad: Avid brakes. Comes with avid 1's, garbage. Will be upgrading to XT brakes, Hadley hubs, and Stan's rims. No other complaints.

    Overall Review:

    My pocket book and I are happy. Great ride and would recommend.
