The Good: No Flex / Easy to tune / Simple maintenance / Great geometry options / Clean cable routing / Easy to build up / Great on fast or steep tight trails / Pedals well / No noticeable brake-jack
The Bad: Hummmm of the top of my head I can't think of any to date...Overall Review: The GG/DH is on par or surpasses many of the current mainstream downhill bikes. A weekend warrior or a seasoned racer can set-up the bike for fun and to win races. I know for a fact that the bike can be built up to a 36.5Lb race bike with basic downhill parts. It is a great bike to ride, rails corners, rips through steep gnarly trail sections and is simple to maintain. Set up is super easy with the GG/DH baseline recommendations, a couple runs to tweak in the suspension to personal preference, and the bike is ready for race day.
The Good: one very agile bike in slow single track , does not require much experience to enjoy.Very comfortable, lets spend many hours on it.
The Bad: Tihs is a weak bike, you can not require too much of it, but the price is justifiedOverall Review: You can not put chain guide. It's a pretty simple bike which corresponds very well to the less demanding!
The Good: Light, incredible vibration damping, looks good
The Bad: None really, maybe price but this is handmade so I get the priceOverall Review: I've ridden carefully chosen carbon bars for years now and when Easton launched their latest Havoc it was a no brainer. Light, strong and incredibly forgiving, sucking up negative energy on the trail. I have the Haven on my trail bike as well with the same positive results. It's one of the few bars I trust after instant failure on a aluminum bar a few years back.
The Good: The VPP suspension is a no argue fact that this bike has to accomodate various trails
The Bad: nothing so farOverall Review: I used to ride this bike either for all mountain trails rides and xc rides, the bike is predictable even when Im on speedy ride down the hill. I totally recommend this bike for you who seek the all mountain rig and be your daily best friend.
The Good: -Comfortable
-Great Vibration Dampening
-Perfect amount of rise for XC/FR
The Bad: I guess should come in different lengths to support different styles of ridingOverall Review: I ran these on my '08 Turner Sultan in an FSA alloy stem and they worked great for harder XC and freeride. Awesome vibration dampening, good rise, had no complaints. I like twitchy bars so the 680 width was awesome. Stable, comfortable bars. Pretty durable too. They did crack on a major crash, but to be fair I am 6'7" and 190 lbs, so I have no business with carbon anyways. Took an impact of 35 mph directly on the outermost left grip to produce a hairline crack. Wish I could say the same for me (double snapped collarbone, 2 broken vertebrae, collapsed lung). I would recommend these as budget friendly carbon bars to anyone
