 I have a 2005 Johnson, which is nearly the same as this bike. A bike that has allowed me to confidently push my limits and beyond without worrying if it'll still be in one piece at the end. Despite its burlyness, the pedalling position is such that it can be taken on xc rides too.

 i think the main highlight about this bike is the suspension, its very smooth like butter the only problem is the rebound is fairly slow but i still love it. the rear shock is just great so the suspension is the best and the tires are good they lasted me over a year i still have them but im needing new ones, if you are looking for a freeride bike this is great but you would want to change the tires because they are very heavy. the brakes are stunning they are as good as anything you would ever need

 I'm not a very experienced rider by any means but I picked up a brand new 2009 Ollie for 999$ at a shop in Calgary. When looking at hardtails that were priced higher it seemed like a no brainer to buy it. I haven't taken many jumps on it since I'm not really good but I've taken many MANY nice drops on it and it feels like I'm landing on a cloud.

This bike feels wonderful going downhill and the breaks are nice and responsive. I feel I won't reach the bike's limits for at least another couple years and I plan on simply upgrading parts as they wear out or break.

So far the only damage done since I've had this bike has been to me haha. (broken shoulder and cut my lip right through up to my nose). Bike has seen some nasty spills and is still going strong with only a few scratches. Solid frame, although a bit on the heavy side but I can only assume many other bikes in this class are just as heavy. For 999$ I don't think I could of even found something used that is nearly as good as this bike. I hope to be able to buy a better and beefier downhill Devinci in the future.

 i currently own an Ollie and although brutish in weight its a brilliant bike takes everything the UK could chuck at it not to mention the amount of loud bangs from rocks bouncing off the frame and not a dent to be seen kudos to devinci

 A good bike for somebodys first full suspension. A balanced and smooth bike for freeride/light downhill + low cost. The only con I can think of is that the left chainstay is higher than the right, but it is barely noticable and does not affect riding. 08 Version.

 bought it as a frame and kitted it out with some tough but light components.

head angle is slack enough for dh but as standard the bb is quite high so i engineered some new linkage plates for it.

top tube is long enough to ride back from the trails without feeling stretched out for dh use. i find some dh bike too cramped but the ollie rocks!!

 I have an 05. I love this bike and it really is like riding a bike with a built-in tranny. I had 3 norco's (Drop,Launch & A-line) before I bought my Ollie and I am so glad I made the change. The older Ollie's were also speced out a lot better but they were also twice the price. You can't go wrong with a Devinci Ollie.

 Really good pice for an affordable price. more for freeride condition but could be really good in DH too. the 2008 devincie ollie was better and was build with better piece then the 2009 but the 2009 is like 100-200 more affordable

 Borrowed it from a friend for the day and ripped some fun downhill. I had a blast on it. It was a little small for me at 6"4 but it was my first time on a Free ride. It was a very easy bike to control!

 This bike is such an awesome bike. it rides up very well and down even better. fork is great. one con is that there is no fox pro pedal for climbing.

 Everything on this bike works great! I have a 2006 devinci and it's the best bike i've ever owned. Very stable, easy to turn are some of his strong points.

 The bike is solid. Very good starter bike. With this bike you can take away and upgrade parts because it's a starter bike
