    Speed Fox as a trail bike

    Thinking of picking up a Speed Fox frame from CC to compliment by AM and DH bikes. BMC markets the bike as a marathon bike. Can anyone comment on how strong the frame is? Thinking of building one as a trail/xc/slalom bike but don't want it break.

    Anyone riding theirs hard? How is it holding up?

    I haven't had mine too long, however I think it might handle a little to fast for slalom purposes. Quality so far is pretty good.

    I've had my speedfox 01 for about 2 months now and it's holding up really well and I ride on super rocky trails in West Texas.
