    “Amazing bike for the price!”

    The Good:

    Fox Fork, Great Components, Very Fast and Super Responsive

    The Bad:

    Weak Tires, Grips Slip off bar, Wheels seem a bit weak

    Overall Review:

    I have had my Superfly AL for about a month now and I must say that I have been trying to kill it. Fell in about 2 feet of mud the other day and it still finished the additional 3 miles of my ride with hardly any hiccups. The chain has only come off once, but I blame myself since I shifted way too fast while pedaling. Have gone off a couple of high jumps at high speed and have no evidence of damage. I love the Fox shocks, which have been removed from the 2013 version and replaced with the RockShox. I see it as a mistake, but the higher ups at Trek know their stuff. So overall. I would buy it again.
