the spec is pretty good for the money but i carnt comment on how it rides but if it rides well then its worth it

Cheers guys

All the reviews that the bike gets in Europe are good (all written in German though) and they have a 3 year crash replacemnt policy which gives you a reduced price frame to purchase.

You know its one of those things but the phrase - if its too good to be true etc - keeps popping into my head.

Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

cheers

I've seen these a while ago when i was looking for a new dh bike, he said they were a really good bike company. I asked this question a while ago on here but didn;t get much response. I really like the limited addition one, only 24 were made!

Something nobody has mentioned yet:

the tues dh an tues fr models were commonly known to snap on the chainstay,

The dj bike,I've only heard of one problem, someone cracked one under seattube.

The best yt bike is probably the freeride. (noton)
