    “Free Ride Beast/ Great beginner DH bike!”

    The Good: I was we'll impressed when it showed up with a Boxxer RC instead of the Spec'd Domian. She's a beauty.

    The Bad: The stock rims are strong enough, but the engagement points on the back hub are too few and far between,

    Overall Review:

    Had this bike for about a year, got it and sold my Cove shocker as I was looking to down grade bikes for financial reasons and also I don't race so didn't need a race bike, just needed a weekend/freeride steed

    I can say that after all my mods and adjustments, my big hit is an absolute beast! Totems up front, rc4 at the back, saint brakes, Works components 1 degree headset, MRP G2, x9 10 speed drivetrain, nukeproof trimmings

    Great bike, am surprised they stopped making them and started making the Status. Wheels are a bit average, strong just rear hub is a bit cheap, but for the price of the full package, they have to cut back somewhere, and considering they are one of the few stock components on the bike, they can't be that bad!

    “Great bike to start with or ride on”

    The Good: very easy to control. fun, light, jumpy bike. It is really fun to through around in the air.//tricks

    The Bad: the chain guide is very temperamental.....or at least it was for me, my chain fell off constantly.

    Overall Review: great bike to have fun on! defiantly get one if you are looking for a cheep Free-ride style of bike, or starter Down hill.
