    Thoughts on Topanga Comp 06

    G'Day all

    I have a buddy who's looking at getting into MTB and thinking of purchasing a Topanga Comp 06. Anyone beein making a similar decision or had an earlier Topanga?

    Pros and cons?

    Your comments really appreciated

    Thanks very much!

    I have a 98 Topanga Comp. And have had no issues with it. Its a little heavy, but for the money its not bad. I've beaten the crap out of this bike and its still going strong.

    I have an '04 Topanga Comp that has been beaten to hell. I essentially learned mountain biking on that machine. And it has held up like a champ.


    Edited to correct the year. Always forget if it was an '03 or '04

    Good bike, but it's actually an '05. No Topanga for '06 unless you're outside the U.S. I would check out the Raleigh Mojave 8.0. Similar spec, some upgrades, but much lighter frame, and really a great group of components. We got some in early in my shop, and everyone's impressed with the build-up. Fork locks out and has genuine oil dampening, also adjustable. Blah, blah, I'm such a geek, but it's a pretty blue, too.
