The Good: 1)Extremely reliable
3)It says Shimano on it. It must be good.
The Bad: 1)Could be lighter(lol)
2)Graphics will wear off eventually(also lol)
The Good: Climbs well, Descends even better. Slack geometry. durable. Looks great.
The Bad: The stock shock isnt my favorite but it is decent.Overall Review: I was looking for a bike that could both descend and climb. Little did I know that I was getting a bike that could both handle all the downhill I was capable of dishing out and more but I would also be able to give my XC friends a run for the money when out on XC rides. This bike really is the best of both worlds. Im not looking to replace this anytime in the near future.
The Good: Cool, Fit, Comfortable, Non-Slip, Killer looks.
The Bad: Have to take off shoe to put them on/off.Overall Review: What a solid knee pad! They're so good I bought the knee/shin 180 combo for riding DH as well. I've taken some falls without the the pad budging and protection has been spot. Not to mention the pad looks good too, nothing crazy mind you.. just black and grey w/ a simple kali logo. I've had both the knee and knee/shin combo on in hot weather and my legs have always stayed relatively cool. They won't stay sweat free but what can you expect by strapping neoprene and plastic to your legs. In the past I've used the 661 knee/shin race pads and the TLD knee/shin. The Kali pads are WAY more comfortable. Its like they Read More »
The Good: Well priced, great stopping power, low maintenance, easy to install, tool free reach adjustment, comes with those finned pads
The Bad: I can't think of anyOverall Review: These brakes are awesome. You really can't beat them for the price. I haven't had to do any maintenance on these since I got them. Shimano brakes in my opinion are also the easiest to bleed. They have tons of stopping power. I run these on my freeride bike and have used them at multiple bike parks and tons of downhill runs. I've never had to use more than one finger on these brakes. The reach adjustment also works great. My brother has ridden his avid codes the same amount as me or less and they are in need of a bleed and mine are not. The bottom line is if you want dependable, strong brakes and you're on a budget get these brakes!
The Good: the frame has is stronger all around, i love the geometryt of this frame. headtube angle is just right for me.
The Bad: nothing is wrong its a giantOverall Review: great frame the price is great for the frame and good geometry
