    Azure Expert 08 experiences

    i am considering to get an Azure Expert 08 model. Can fellow riders share your feedback and experience on this bike with its dwlink technology. i am currently riding a hardtail and looking for my first full suspension bike.

    The azure is an awsome bike i have been riding one for about 6 months now. It is a very fast XC bike. the frame hasnt changed since 2005 so there are a lot of parts available for it as well.

    LOVE it

    Love mine to death

    a few caveats
    -Really light wheels help the bike shine
    -Need to balance the front fork with the rear shock. For example, I run a SPV minute fork with a Progressive shock. Both with a little bit of platform.
    -really need to spend a time dialing in the sag and rebound. try lots of options
    -It likes to climb in the middle ring. I've found it better to stay in middle ring and pedal heavier gear than to change to granny.

    Don't be scared by the heavier weight when compared to other bikes. Lighten up some major components and it will ride much lighter than it is.

    Personally I sized up and went to a short stem. The sizing on these seems to be a short top tube when compared to other manufacturers.
