    RM Reaper I, Deal or no Deal?

    sorry for the bad tv show reference but jenson USA currently has Reaper Is for $399 however i cnat find any real information (there was another thread with the same question but there was no real info on it) im wondering if this is a good bike, seems good but a little weary because RM only made it for 2 years then dropped it, plus jenson has it listed as a dirt jumper. if anyone has one, had one, or knows someone who has one just put in your two cents.

    thanks for all your help,


    (P.S. im not trying to turn this into a "tell me which bike i should buy" thread but suggestions are always welcome)

    They did make them in 2009, 2010 and 2011. They were billed as an All Mountain hardtail, with a 120-130mm fork, they weren't quite as beefy as the Flow which was an Urban/DJ bike

    It was quite a budget spec so $399 is an OK price.

    One of the reasons it's kind of underground is that it was never offered in the US. Was only a canadian bike back then...
