    Same exact bike I got, rides nice but the only complaint I have with it is that the brakes fade quite a bit on some of the longer runs, but other than that it is my do all bike sitting next to my new dh rig.

    I have beaten this bike up a lot as well

    Looks like a nice ride. Write a review once you get a nice ride in...

    kk review: ****in awesome, rides really really well, feels indestructible and is really really flashy . my friend thought it was a godly figure, lol. but yeah the brakes are a tad fad prone but nothing serious, il be a hayes customer as long as i live. suspension: feels like riding on a cloud; if thats possible. drive train: has issues, deore officialy sucks, shifts veeeeeeery slow.

    other than that, this is the best bike ive ever ridden

    Bleed your brakes, and get new pads. You might like Hayes now, but try other brands out too you might surprise yourself. And Deore can shift crazy fast if it's adjusted properly, you just have to have the magic in the fingers to do so.

    One other thing I forgot to mention is that the shifting cable housing is kind of cheap so if the shifting gets slow or really hard to do then the change the shifter cable and the last section of shifter housing. After I made that change the shifting was quick and smooth again. But, biggest issue I have had are the white grips

    All I have to say that if you are that happy with your hayes, you would be absolutely ecstatic with some hopes.....don't become attached to companies, otherwise you miss out on some great products.

    Often times a factory bleed on a brakeset isn't very good. I can almost guarantee you that if you bleed your brakes you'll get better performance out of them since you'll be getting bubbles out of the brake lines. You mentioned that they don't have a ton of power... A fresh bleed will give you more power and better brake modulation, not to mention a more reliable system. At some point or another a lot of us have been flying down a hill and grabbed the brakes only to get nothing. A good bleed will help eliminate that.

    So how long until you start a thread on what frame to swap your parts out to? Let me give you some suggestions:

    Surly Pugsley
    Transition 450
    FBM Sword

    Any of those should just take the parts bolted straight on, shall we discuss which one is better for light freeriding and agressive xc all mountain riding? I'd say The Sword.

    Get off the internet and post some pictures of your new rig in action!

    That one made me laugh pretty hard. But on to your question:
    As for Sword vs 450 vs Pugsley, I'd go Pugsley. Can the Sword stick a sickness nolly-nose-tap-a-roo while wearing dockers like this??



    Poetry right there.

    A) I need a pugs, and that picture is fantastic
    2) I couldn't come up with any funny pictures of a Sword in action, probably because there aren't enough bike polo and riding to a coffee shop pictures out there.

    Keep flip-whipping the pugs!
