    Thoughts on Easton Dagger

    Good, bad or ugly (kind of ugly). Just wondering where they land (or if they do) in the pantheon of VRC. Thx.

    As a previous owner of the B2, B3 and B4 Amps, I have always loved the simplicity of the horst link and mac strut set-up. Lots of bikes licensed and used that rear suspension frame design( Fat Chance Shockabilly, Cherry Bikes, and of course Dagger to name several), and I personally always thought the Dagger FS frames were pretty cool. Unfortunately I have also heard numerous stories about cracked Dagger frames too, but since I have never personally owned one I can't really say. In the same vein I have also heard that about the Amps over the years, but even having raced one back in the mid 90's the worst I ever had happen was the shock come apart on me, and the frame seemed to hold up ok even though it was pretty flexy. If you have some pics or information on a build with one I for one would be interested in seeing what you have!
