The Good: Trail riding in general. Great freeride to light enduro rig.
The Bad: Tight switchbacks. Low end on some build spec.Overall Review: I have had this ride for a year now. The wedding rush is gone but my bride still rocks. Out of the box the bike was great but as I got to know it and pushed more I found some faults. >The tires just sucked. Unpredictable and the rough, rocky, rooted texas rides destroyed them in no time. Slipped on some Cross-max and it was sorted. >Then the chain guide broke. Went with a RF Narrow wide and have no issues at all. Why did they not spec it like this? >The fork took some time to "break in" but once it did and I got the tuning wired...nice. The rest of the bike, though low end (SLX, Deore) works great still. It climbs, Read More »
The Good: Rails the corners, super stable&predictable, easy to ride, smooth landings, easy to do doubles triples bunny hops whips and so on
all round bike very good for high speeds, accelerates quickly, the paint is scratch resistant. No break jack ! The shock unit comes custom tuned for the frame, very quiet bike no bad noise from the chain or so... Geometry is adjustable as well the chainstay lenght.
The Bad: When new frame makes funny noises from the rear axle, frame with the shock are just a bit heavy but lighter than TR450 about 330gr.
Cable routing for the rare brake is a but idiotic goes under the chainstay instead over it and this make it vulnerable, have to make a bigger holes to install the brake hose inside the frame. Frame bearings need to be re-greased as they come super dry.
The Good: Simple..Grips well...
The Bad: Eermm....the bad is I'm too late to buy this grips...Overall Review: Just installed the grips few days ago and have tried it in local trail with various path; uphill, descent, and also the combination of rock and roots. I don't know about other, but I think the Combat is the couple of every gloves out there. It's like the gecko in the wall. The design is simple while other seems too busy to make attractive design on appearance. Funn Combat is good product with good price, I mean this product performs well just like the expensive products out there.
The Good: Fit, feel, value, bar feel, protection
The Bad: Trying to think of something....nope.Overall Review: I previously had some super light Dakine gloves that detonated within a month. I will say I expect all Dakine products to detonate immediately after purchase. Sometimes you're in a bind and need something on the spot. I had tried these gloves on at the bike shop a couple times. We courted each other for a while. I was a little hesitant due to the cost but then I started comparing against others such as TLD. Once the Dakine's shat the bed after stitching them back together I decided to ask the Fox out on a date. She graciously accepted and a cheap $25 date later we had consummated something special.

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..
