The Good: hooks up any where
The Bad: there is no bad part about this tireOverall Review: I use this tire on my trek 6000, or my extremely shred tastical ride, and typically I destroy tires in two months, but some how its in tact?Any way this tire has hardly worn at all, and grips every where
The Good: Light, stays true
The Bad: None foundOverall Review: I first used these rotors with my old Elixir 5 brakes about three years ago. I changed over from the regular Avid rotors you get for free with the brakes, to try to help eliminate that hideous 'turkey warble'. These rotors are infinitely better and went some way to eliminate the problems with the old Avid rotors. Since then I have moved these on to the back of two different bikes where they perform flawlessly with Shimano SLX 666 brakes. Three years, no pitting and still completely true, very impressed. I'll probably never buy Avid brakes again, but don't overlook these rotors foe AM, trail and XC duties, they seem better than the Shimano rotors.
The Good: Lightenes and nice look.
The Bad: Not specified for DH.Overall Review: Not specified for DH.
The Good: Suspension
The Bad: Color combinationOverall Review: Done several trails and the performance is really great compared to other fullsus bikes I have tried. Good job to Lapierre team.
The Good: Laterally stiff, comfortable geometry, Dyad shock adds versatility, great parts spec (including light wheels, beefy Fox 36 fork and Reverb)
The Bad: A bit heavy at 31.9 lbs with pedals, the fork's damping is basic, a tool-free rear axle would be niceOverall Review: I’ve been riding my Jekyll MX for about 6 months and have been really pleased. My impressions right out of the box were similar to what the Vital review said, but with a few tweaks to setup, the bike feels absolutely dialed. I live in Vancouver, BC and this is my one and only bike. My riding includes a bit of everything, from laps on the Shore to all-day XC epics in Squamish and a few enduro races. The bike feels lively, stable and laterally stiff. While some bikes like to keep wheels on the ground and soak up everything, the Jekyll feels a bit firmer and more progressive, riding higher in its travel. The rear suspension Read More »
