    is Devinci what i'm looking for ?

    Hi all
    i'm trying to decide about buying a Devinci Ollie/johnson.
    what i'm looking for is a tough bike for agressive AM and FR with your occasional DH trails.
    i don't do high drops (my body can't take it), but i do like going hard and fast.

    my questions are - i have no experience with the devinci (just a short ride), so how are they compared to the VPfree and Uzzi ?
    can you pedal with them when you need too ? not talking about xc rides, but i do like riding up technical trail from time to time and you can't drive to every trail out there.
    how do they handle cornering ?

    i will be able to take one for a few days in a week or so, but i wanted to know how they handle before :-).

    thanks

    Tal

    For what you describe, the Ollie or Johnson are really overkill. If you are looking to buy a new bike, take a look at the Frantik line or the Hectik line. It sounds to me like the Hectik may be your best option.

    BTW, you will not find these bike on Devinci's website...they haven't updated it with the 2007 line yet.
