    Another nice looking addition to the 27.5 lineup and a brand that I rarely see on the trail. Probably a unique suspension feel and one that I would enjoy trying out.

    I want it, I currently have a XCT 5 and love it. I am seriously thinking about one for christmas.

    One hot looking bike!
    It weighs in the same as the Shaver 29 that MBA tested recently and about the same as my tracer 29. I bet that weight can be beaten by quite a bit without making it too weak

    I like it! The numbers look good, and single pivot designs still (imo) offer great performance.:thumbsup:

    Cheers,

    Love Foes... rode an FXR for a number of years, but I moved on. 32lbs is a bit heavy for my blood at 12,000'. Looks mighty capable though! Nice job Brent!

    I'm looking forward to the write up. That looks like a great bike, as I am biased. I've been riding Foes since 1995...

    That pivot is in the right place to make that bike awesome.

    I have a feeling that once 1x11 drive-trains become the norm, single pivot bikes will become popular again...

    Nice! I've always admired Foes bikes from afar, but never had a chance to get on one.
    It's kinda cool to be able to witness the whole weight weenie thing die off with the advent of 29 and 650 bikes too. "yeah, she's fat, but you'd take her for a ride." :D

    Sweet Ride! I've always been on a 26, but it's looking like its time to broaden the horizons.

    Foes single pivots perform remarkably well in 5" plus travel bikes. They may not be the best performing XC racing bikes - but in technical situations, a little give is good. They dont bob all that much and handle tech climbs with aplomb.

    Well done Foes. Would love to give that bike a shot.
