The Good: This bike is a machine going downhill, super stable and controllable.
Yes it was incredibly nimble and easy to control (I had the XL!!)
Handles downhill tracks like a downhill bike! and uphills like a normal trail bike.
The Bad: Couldn't fault this bike at all! (maybe the price but you get what you pay for)Overall Review: I test rode this bike for a whole day and after the very first ride it was apparent how much of a beast this thing really is. its nimble and surefooted, I rode it in the mud and very rarely if at all slid out uncontrollably. it jumps fantastically and handles big drops like second nature. I rode an XL I am 6ft 2, it felt slightly too big for me but the best way for you to get the fit right is to sit on one properly if you are going to drop this amount of money on one.You cannot imagine how silent and comfortable this bike is on rough ground, it tracks brilliantly and doesn't skitter about whilst braking its Read More »
The Good: Good product, but still need improvement...
The Bad: Beware of mud..a bit slippery on the muddy ground..Overall Review: This is the tire that can make the bike looks more solid and powerful and this tire performs the powerful style. Just a bit slippery on the muddy ground but rolling fast on the dry track. But overall this is good product..
The Good: This is simple product with good performance..
The Bad: Nngg.....let me think.....Overall Review: This is the best choice with the price. This product comes with simple design and doesn't get the modern touch like its brother such as XT or XTR, but Deore brakeset is really good product. Just one finger and the bike will stop...
The Good: Great fit, good cut, just baggy enough, length is nice, good liner
The Bad: Cotton fabric, crotch catches on seat, pockets are a bit deepOverall Review: When I bought these I thought they were soft and supple and felt very nice. I mean, really, who doesn't like soft and supple, right? When I tried them on with the liner it seemed like they just fit right. These were gonna be summer shorts for when I wasn't wearing pads. The shorts are definitely on the long side. Think: modern day basketball shorts. They fit well on the waist though and were very comfortable. As a matter of fact, they were very comfortable on the first two hour ride with them including the liner. The crotch hung up on the seat a few times but I've learned to just deal with that over time Read More »
The Good: goes down faster than madonna at a naval base
The Bad: comes with elixer brakes.....whyOverall Review: Descends, jumps, and corners well, great park bike, not half bad in tight turns on tech trails. I like the low leverage ratio, easy to tune, bearings are huge, main pivot is 25mm. Changed the brakes to shimano zee and works awesome, the stock brakes are the only weak link with this bike. The bike seems a bit heavy at first but just add speed and it just rips! Scott has this bike dialed!!
The Good: - really aggressive Geometry for that little Travel
- stiff chassis
- pedals well uphill (not great but still good)
- stable ride downhill
The Bad: Not much actually.
I have to ride a medium cage X9 Type 2 derailleur for 1x10spd with a 11-36 cassette, because the rear stretches quite a bit while going through it's travel and the Type 2 derailleurs don't have as much free motion as the normal ones.
A short cage would make the bike quite a bit quieter.
The Good: Amazingly, you would not know how you could become with this radically progressive geometry: 65-degree head tube angle, 74.2-degree seat tube angle, 13.4-inch bottom-bracket height, 17.1-inch chainstays, and a 46.1-inch wheelbase. This is the perfect Geometry for descendant and cornering trails as well as an excellent Geometry for overall all mountain trails (including ascendant trails). Above are perfectly supported by Two thumbs up 650B's application. The Geometry (especially wheelbase) and weight also confidently pushs your limit on every jumping and dropping. The VPP Technology, suspension and 650B's application help you smoothly stay in the ground on most of rock garden and bumping trails...
The Bad: The Price and limited Color options.... :-)Overall Review: WARNING: Little adjustment on how you steering (longer reach than previous Nomad) and how you pedaling or positioning your foots (lower BB high than previous Nomad), then you will be The Scariest Wild Beast on every descendant and crinkle trails.... Trust me, you could not control your smiles on your face......
