    2010 Element 50 Tribal

    Hello all,

    I have what seems to be (by local standards) a decent deal on a hardly used 2010 Element 50 Tribal for my wife.

    Anyone have any experience with this bike?
    It will be used primarily for trails, no drops or anything heavy.

    Rockshox Tora SL (100mm i think)
    Fox Float RPL, 100mm-travel, custom-valved
    Avid brakes
    SRAM-9 Rear sets with XT front.

    Opinions?

    Thanks

    Mike

    Perfectly reasonable XC full suspension bike. Decent spec for the dollar, pedals like a hardtail with some cush.

    It sounds like someone's changed out the fork from the original Fox fork to the Tora.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer. Is the Tora decent?

    Post some pics. I have the Orca paint scheme and love the bike although the pivots are starting to squeak. I had a hankering to collect all three different paint scheme but the wife says ...

    I hope your wife is enjoying her new bike

    Unfortunately shortly after posting this, i decided to check how my shoulder would perform as a landing device - not bad, but i'm just back on the bike after more than 3 months downtime. As a noob, she won't go out alone and prefers to run, but hopefully soon will be out with her for a ride.
