    IMO the VPP free,Foes and Demo should be the considerations not the Iron Horses.the iron horses are nice bikes and all but those other 3 bikes are sick. After that i think its just personal preference,and what kind of riding do you do? I personally like the Foes and Demo best,and i have to say the Spesh caus im gettin a p,3 ...O and what are u graduating from,high school?

    Foes Fly is the ultimate. Build it from the frame up... take advantage of the present.

    Complete bike

    Hey,

    I am graduating college so it is a big present. I am looking at the best SoCal freeride bike. I listed the Sunday because you can mount a 2 or 3 ring on it. Besides that, I will not be doing any DH racing. Price is really not that big of a deal, around $3000-3500 is the target. I am looking more for suspention performance than uphill climbing ability. Thanks for all of the opinions. Please keep posting, it really helps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Either VP Free or Demo 8. Both pedal VERY well, both can take big hits, and both can handle DH. Check out the geometry and see which is preferable to you.

    The IH Sundays handle very well on the trail and pedals as well as my M3, but I thought it felt a bit hard to pull up on the front end. Just something to think about when you're doing drops Everybody I know who has a Foes swears by it, I just haven't ridden one.

    You can't mount a double or tripple on the sunday... its a DH race bike.

    Demo is pretty sick
    I saw a sunday yesterday it was nice. Make sure you don't just by the stock bikes if you can get away with it. My favorite place for full builds is speedgoat because you can have them custom build your bike from the website free shipping and no sales tax helps too. If I were gonna buy a new bike i'd get Fat custom VP free, or banshee Scream from them. I like the stock setup on demos but I would miss my hope brakes, sram stuff, and tubeless setup. The sunday comes stock with a Boxxer which isn't something I would spend money on, I love my zocchi. Seriously though you need to be doing your homework on this. Go out and test ride these bikes. You should also Add the Banshee Scream to your list and It seems like WCH really loves his Canfeild F1. If it has the low standover height as stiffness he talks about then I like it too. Just make sure you get a good stiff frame with the right Geo and make sure the components are to your liking. I copped out on my frame and bought a Bullit because I was on a budget. I kinda got lucky and my bullit is really rigid while my buddy has a bullit and its hell flexy. I'm thinking I'll be picking up a new frame after one season on the bullit and get some thing like the Canfeild F1.

    Yes I have a big boner about speedgoat if you think I spam on them a lot.

    the problem with asking for advice about this choice is most ppl who respond haven't ridden every bike, so it's hard to give a fair opinion

    test out any that you can and decide from that. they're all great bikes, i'm sure

    Wouldn't the foes fly built up be more then his price range??? I guess depending on the spec you could get it in the 3000-3500 but it would be tight......In fact i think any of those bikes built up would be tight squeeze to get it in that price range....
